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.
