3) Switzerland

Those visiting Switzerland can expect a warm welcome from the locals, who have a reputation for being friendly and happy. Switzerland is a small country, but combines four distinct cultures. Depending where you travel, you could encounter people speaking French, German, Italian, or traditional Romanch! Whether you’ve come for hiking or skiing, the Swiss Alps have got you covered with thousands of miles of trails and breathtaking scenery. Switzerland scored lower than any other country in the category of political instability. Famous for its neutrality on global and regional issues, this stance works for them – really, really well. However, the Swiss still maintain strong relationships with neighboring countries. Switzerland is one of the few countries in the world that is internally and externally conflict-free with no involvement in war since 1847. Bonus: The Swiss produce great chocolate (ever heard of Lindt?) and world-famous watches. Hats off to the Swiss!
