Image 2 of 10


ICELAND: Iceland is the second-most peaceful country in the world, according to the GPI. It is a member of NATO, has no standing army, and enjoys relative political stability. Iceland’s proportion of GDP spent on its military is the lowest of any European nation. Iceland's volcano under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier is seen here spewing ash on May 5.
