No kumbaya here: U.S. is now the 101st 'most peaceful' nation on earth


It stands at No. 101, according to the annual Global Peace Index, a complex analysis that quantifies the relative peacefulness of 162 nations.

Released Wednesday, the eighth annual assessment is data-driven and measures such things as internal crime statistics, political forces, refugee activity, population trends and other factors — including terrorism, the number of homicides and economic conditions.

The most peaceful spot? Iceland, followed by Denmark and Austria.

The three least peaceful countries are South Sudan, Afghanistan and Syria, at the very bottom of the list.
