Iceland's status as the most peaceful country in the world is a position which has been held since 2008. Its crime rate is so incredibly low, with just 18 murders per 100,000 people annually. The Nordic island was followed by New Zealand, Portugal, and Austria. This is the fifth year in a row, these specific countries are in the top 4 most peaceful in the world.
