World war II
has come and gone and we certainly hope there is no other world war. But suppose there is a World war III? We do hope that the relative peace we have experienced since 1945 when the last world war
occurred will remain. Factboyz
brings to your doorstep safe countries you could consider staying in suppose a third world war
should break out. Enjoy
This remote island is definitely going to be safe, same with a host of other countries that share the same characteristic of being “remote” is a Polynesian island country located in the Pacific Ocean, situated in Oceania, about midway between Hawaii and Australia. With its very small population of around 10,000 inhabitants and not many sought-after resources, no country on earth would have any reason to attack it. The people of Tuvalu are very self-sufficient- they grow their own food and expect less help from any other country.
The remote Island of Fiji is indeed the real definition of isolation. Fiji consists of 332 islands. There are two main islands, which account for 75% of the total land area, and 87% of Fiji’s small population of 860,000. Situated in the vast expanses of the Pacific Ocean, the island nation has a small population and considering the fact that they are neutral in foreign affairs. It will hopefully be a safe haven should war break out.
3. New Zealand:
Looking at the map of the world, you will agree that New Zealand is pretty much secluded from the rest of the world. The large island ranks high on the global peace index making it one of the safest places to be on earth. It has a stable, functional democracy and is not involved in major conflicts.
The rich European country is blessed beyond its measures with high mountain terrains surrounding the country; hence invaders will obviously have a tough time getting in. It is interesting to know that Switzerland wasn’t invaded in the two world wars even though surrounded by countries deeply involved in the war- Germany, Italy and France.
Located in the Himalayan mountains and bordered by China to the north, and India to the south, Bhutan’s unique geographic location makes for an excellent hide out should war happen. Known as the happiest country in the world, Bhutan’s national identity is based on Buddhism which teaches: “whether we have global peace or global war is up to us at every moment….Peace or war is our decision. The fundamental goal of Buddhism is peace, in all worlds”. Suffices to say, the Bhutanese people are pretty peaceful, and want nothing to do with war.
The Island of Greenland is so isolated that it has just 56,000 people. Much of it’s land is covered in ice and therefore it will be very unattractive to potential future invaders. Greenland
is extremely peaceful and safe with no regular military forces.
The North Atlantic country of Ireland is known for its peace. Ranked
high in the Global Peace Index
, Ireland is no area for wars. Nowadays, the Irish don’t have many enemies, and not really any ties to potential WWIII combatants. With a history of military neutrality and a modest army, Ireland is not even a member of NATO and they remain proudly neutral.
The Nordic country
is a country known worldwide for its high standard of living and peace. The population is around 380,000 and it wont be an option to attack if war occur; thanks to it’s neutrality in taking sides when conflicts arises.
Chile is another great place to go if a world war breaks out. Almost impenetrable, Chile is protected by the Andes mountains which extend along its entire western border. It is prosperous, stable and ranks highest in human development of any other Latin American nations. An interesting fact here, is that air masses of the Southern and Northern hemispheres
have a tendency to stay separated from each other; so Chile’s air is constantly being freshened up, and replenished by the clean Antarctic air. Air quality will be much cleaner in Chile than in any of the northern nations should World War III
10. North Sentinel Island:
North Sentinel Island
is one of the Andaman Islands, an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal which also includes South Sentinel Island. It is home to the Sentinelese, a people who have rejected, often violently, any contact with the outside world. They are among the last uncontacted peoples
to remain virtually untouched by modern civilisation The very isolated island will be a very safe place
should world war 3 break out. Thanks to it’s remote isolation.
