It also tells countries how to be peaceful. Iceland is the most peaceful country. It has been number one since 2008.
The report says that 93 countries are more peaceful and 68 are less peaceful. Researchers looked at murder rates, the number of weapons, and terrorism in each country. Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, South Sudan and Yemen are the least peaceful countries. There are too many problems in the Middle East and the USA.
