With a 2022 score of 3.554 (actually slightly safer than 2021’s 3.631), Afghanistan remains the most dangerous country in the world for the fifth year in a row.

A war-torn country that has been mired in war, revolution, and civil strife for decades, Afghanistan has a higher number of deaths from war and terrorism than any other country in the world—a considerable achievement considering Russia and Ukraine were actually at war for several months while the data was being collected.
