Top 10 safest countries in the world 2014-2015

Every single person has a dream to live in a safest country. The government is also making strict laws to reduce crime rate, which is considered as main factor to determine whether a country is safe or not. Other than crime we should look into various elements like natural disaster, corruption, terrorism, economical crisis, culture and more.

  1. #2 picture is not anywhere in Taiwan.

  2. Taiwan is not a country, but still an amazing place

    • How on earth you think Taiwan is not a country ! They have their own currency, army,government …and many more . Jeffrey ,you must be from China ! And be realistic, Taiwan doesn’t belong to China!

      • exactly! and Chinese people can’t go there without a visa or vice versa. of course it’s a country in every sense of the word. the official name of the country is Republic of China, actually, and the country we commonly know as “China” is really the People’s Republic of China. when the communists overthrew the country 65 or so years ago, the existing government retreated to Taiwan and the communists never won that territory. in fact, Taiwan had claimed ownership of China for years afterwards as the PRC still baselessly claims ownership of Taiwan. Taiwan is what’s left of the old China and what the PRC refers to as “the mainland” is a new country occupying territory that used to belong to RoC. although the PRC is considered to be a “developing country,” it is nonetheless a world superpower and it uses it’s substantial power and influence in its ongoing political struggle to take over and rule Taiwan. that’s the only reason there are any other countries in the world that refuse to recognize Taiwan as a sovereign nation, which it IS. someday, at some point in the future, the two countries might once again unify, but for now and for the past 65 years, they have been as separate as Ireland is from Northern Ireland, North Korea is from South Korea, and America is from Canada, and Taiwan is all the better country for its long-standing independence from its neighboring giant successor.

        • Bono,totally agree you.

        • I cannot believe how well you illustrated our history so eloquently and easily, I myself am a Taiwanese but raised in New Zealand, the way you described my country really brings me to tears and if everyone in the world would take your stance, this cross-strait relationship will never be a problem again.

      • Thank you, Catherine !^_^

      • I’m agree!i am taiwanese.xoxo

    • Hey man! Are you f__king bozo? You know? I think you are uneducated. Taiwan is a country!! totally different with f__king china

      • cant agree more bro

      • Taiwan is a country for sure, but i think u r uneducated when u say f__king china

      • Hongkong has all the above too, it still belongs to China. These things don’t mean shiit, when the region isn’t internationally recognized. US doesn’t recognize it as a country, UN doesn’t, EU doesn’t, even taiwan government don’t say taiwan is a country, thats when you know it’s definitely not a country lol.

      • F**k you the Taiwannes,tell you Taiwanese that chinese don’t like you Taiwanese!china doesn’t need you Taiwan.whatever you want to be. We won’t care.don’t put you Taiwan so important.You Will see that china without Taiwan also can be very nice.

      • Jajaja. Such a stupid idiot! Using all the products from a country which ever ur as*

    • Of course Taiwan is not the name of a country. The official name should be Republic of China.

    • Actually,Taiwan is the country that won WW2 and established UN.You should go back school and learn some dude!

      • Apparently you dont know history.

      • Lmfao! Plz read some book before u want comment some issues. N I don’t know why u persuade another guy comeback to school, oh , sry I forgot maybe u got F in ur history subj of high school

        • Ok if anything Amos you are the one who needs an education cause that is not how you talk autocorrect or not.

          • Actually I feel boring abt this argument now. Because it’s useless ,all of u can’t change the situation between TW n China U have to clear this fact that u r a menial person who can’t change anything in this world. No reply. Thx

          • 顶你,Amos!

    • Taiwan is a COUNTRY!!!

    • Taiwan is a country,respect please

    • Taiwan is an independent country it has nothing to do with China only those who are brain damaged think TAIWAN is not a country.

      • I’m sure everyone else is brain damaged. Taiwan isn’t recognized internationally foo. Not by UN not by US not by EU. live in the dream boy. live in the dream.

        • It is not a dream, but a reality. Why Taiwan has to be “recognized” by any other governmentality, but not by the people themselves..That is people’s will, not your narrow perspective, that can decided who they are. I really feel so sorry for you because you are too ignorant to respect a country and its people.

          • Our Chinese people don’t care whether Taiwan is a independent country or not.please respect the Chinese people.You want to call yourself Taiwanese also ok.but don’t say Chinese bring Taiwanese down,ok?

      • + 1 ……Taiwan is a COUNTRY!!!

    • I have been to Taiwan once 5 years ago. Truly a friendly and lovely place to visit. (I’m from CA)

    • Taiwan is a country everyone knows by the way are you Chinese ?

    • Of course taiwan is a country

    • Maybe you should visit before you write a wrong reply.

    • Taiwan is a independent country absolutely !!

    • Of course Taiwan is a country

    • Pathetic China people. Based on his rationale, United States is part of UK?

      • @Pathetic Jeffery. I can tell u ,coward, US is a independent country because she won the Revolutionary War in 1783. Ok , now ,let TW n China have a battle without anyone s help. If TW can win the war, chinese will never say unify again. U know what I mean coward?

        • Amos,I totally agree you.
          Coward ! I think china should work together with USA,then kick the guys’ass who always want to separate our china.

        • US won her independence with French help. The Statue of Liberty in New York is the outcome of it. And it is the 21st century already, so human being should have learned not to resolve territorial dispute by force.

    • Taiwan is definitely a country, doubtless.

    • Taiwan is a country, of course, that Taiwan had dependent government, dependent military force, dependent people believing in their own country

    • you get fucking problem ? Taiwan is a country and it’s different with china
      Come on Man respect please or you can go back to school

    • Taiwan is a country.
      I’m Taiwanese.

      • Taiwan is not a country. It is a province of China.
        I’m from Taiwan as well.

        • 台灣是一個獨立的國家, 是中國不要臉說台灣是屬於中國的.
          為什麼台灣護照去美國不用簽證而中國的需要呢 ?? 不只美國還有其他國家也是 !! 若台灣與中國是一個國家為何中國的需要呢 ??

        • Please let me know which city of Taiwan are you from. I am really curious because you sound not like a Taiwanese. The province system has been abolished for several years. You must have left Taiwan two decade ago, or you will know there is no province anymore.
