The index scored each country on a 1 - 5 scale, one being the highest, and Iceland's score of 1.192 was almost perfect. Denmark took second (1.192), followed by Austria in third (1.278), making this year's top three identical to last year's index.
The countries at the bottom of the list are all in a state of serious unrest. Syria was considered the most dangerous with a score of 3.806, followed by South Sudan (3.593) and Iraq (3.570).
And where does the US place in all this? The United States didn't even come close to cracking the top 10. It sits between Guinea and Cambodia at 103rd, with a score of 2.154.
