Since 2006, the term "peace" has been defined as the "absence of violence" by the Global Peace Index.

With this in mind, recent research suggests that Iceland is ranked first among the most peaceful countries, followed by Denmark and New Zealand.

The top 5 most peaceful countries in the world, according to the Institute for Economics and Peace's Global Peace Index, are shown below;

1. Iceland

It may surprise you to learn that Iceland is the world's most peaceful country. Many people who have visited the country and heard so much may attest that it is a safe place to live.

However, if you aren't used to living in cold weather, you may find it tough to adjust. The country is well-known for being both chilly and small. It is for this reason that it is recognized as one of the most peaceful countries in the world, out of 162.

Many people visit the country as a tourism destination. Iceland offers a wealth of sights and experiences.

2. Denmark

Denmark is recognized as the world's second most peaceful country. When it comes to business and safety, Denmark, like other North European countries, is believed to be the finest.

Despite its tiny size, Denmark is a remarkably "peaceful nation on continental Europe."

3. New Zealand

Since 2007, New Zealand has consistently been named among the world's most peaceful countries.

It is a country with the lowest "% of its population in prison, minimal military strength, close ties to Australia, and down-to-earth hospitality." One may argue that New Zealand is a nice and welcoming place.

4. Austria

Austria is a small country in South-Central Europe. Many factors are considered when determining how calm a country is, and Austria was included on the list due to its "position on international politics."

The country appears to be doing exceptionally well. It is not austere in any way. This is one of the reasons why Austria is considered among the top five countries in terms of peace and prosperity.

5. Switzerland

Because of its low violent crime rate, Switzerland is one of the most peaceful countries in the world. Switzerland is renowned as a magnificent and beautiful country that stands out in the European Union.

"In regional, international, and global political matters, the country is noted for its neutrality." Furthermore, the government maintains strong and peaceful diplomatic ties with a number of countries around the world.
