Some of these rankings are pretty surprising. BTW, Cuba is in North America.

I'm surprised that Haiti is that safe despite the hurricanes and susceptibility to major damage by earthquake. Is this based on both human and physical factors?

It is measured using three domains of peacufulness which are: Ongoing Domestic and International Conflict, Societal Safety and Security (the level of harmony or discord within nation - crime rates, terrorism, stable political scene, demostrations,...) and Militarisation. (source here)
The focus is mainly on human factors. I changed the title of the quiz to make it clearer that it's about peace rather than overall safety.
