  • - [Voiceover] Number 10, Switzerland.

  • With mountainous terrian, a strong tradition of neutrality,

  • widespread bunkers, and a heavily armed populace,

  • Switzerland has undoubtedly proven itself

  • as a safe haven during Europe's bloody past.

  • While Switzerland shares borders

  • with Germany, France, and Italy,

  • which are all locations where nukes undoubtedly

  • will be landing if World War III were to break out,

  • Switzerland is somewhat shielded

  • from these danger zones, thanks to the mountains

  • surrounding Switzerland.

  • This means that the Swiss could take cover

  • up high in the mountains as nukes land all around them.

  • Number nine, Tuvalu.

  • Tuvalu is an island nation deep within the Pacific Ocean

  • that is very remote and neutral.

  • Tuvalu's extreme isolation helps the nation

  • remain politically nonaligned,

  • and its small population and negligible resources

  • means no major power will have any reason to attack Tuvalu.

  • Tuvalu will probably just be ignored

  • if World War III was to start.

  • And, unlike many other island nations,

  • Tuvalu's locals produce and consume

  • mainly their own food and goods,

  • making Tuvalu uniquely self-sufficient.

  • Number eight, New Zealand.

  • New Zealand is one of the most secluded,

  • yet developed, nations in the world.

  • New Zealand has a stable democracy

  • and is not deeply involved in any armed conflicts,

  • and the mountainous terrain of New Zealand

  • can provide shelter in the unlikely event

  • trouble were to ever visit the New Zealand islands.

  • New Zealand also has enough local food supplies,

  • as well as clean water and fertile soil,

  • to support itself in the short term,

  • and New Zealand's peaceful foreign policy

  • gained it the fourth spot on the 2015 Global Peace Index.

  • Number seven, Bhutan.

  • Despite Bhutan's shared borders

  • with two potential combatants of a Third World War,

  • China and India, its unique location makes it

  • an excellent shelter for an apocalyptic conflict.

  • Surrounded by the Himalayan mountains,

  • Bhutan is one of the most

  • secluded, land-locked countries in the world,

  • and since joining the United Nations in 1971,

  • the country has maintained a Swiss-like aversion

  • to foreign entanglements of any kind.

  • Bhutan also has no diplomatic relationships

  • with the United States.

  • In fact, only two states, Bangladesh and neighboring India,

  • even have embassies in Bhutan's capital.

  • Number six, Chile.

  • Chile is one of South America's

  • most stable and prosperous nations,

  • and Chile ranks higher than all other

  • Latin American nations in human development.

  • It is also shielded by the nearly impenetrable

  • Andes mountains to the west of its borders.

  • To top that off, the Southern Hemisphere

  • tends to have less polluted air

  • than the Northern Hemisphere because

  • it has less cities, less population, and less industry,

  • and the air masses of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres

  • tend to stay segregated from each other.

  • Combine this with Chile's air being continually replenished

  • by clean Antarctic air, Chile may stay cleaner

  • than the war-torn nations to its north

  • in the event of a Third World War.

  • Number five, Iceland.

  • Iceland is a country so peaceful and neutral

  • that it was ranked number one

  • in the 2015 Global Peace Index.

  • Iceland also shares no land borders with any other nations

  • and is far removed from most of the world.

  • If nukes were to fall around the world,

  • it's possible Iceland may be left alone

  • during the initial conflict,

  • and even in a worst case scenario,

  • Iceland has mountainous terrain to take shelter in.

  • Number four, Denmark.

  • It is likely that if any conflict

  • were to spread across Europe, Denmark would suffer greatly

  • because of its involvement in NATO,

  • as well as their dangerous proximity

  • to major nations of the European Union.

  • However, this is not entirely true,

  • thanks to one crucial exception: Greenland.

  • Just like Iceland, Greenland is remote,

  • mountainous, and politically nonaligned,

  • meaning the population of Greenland

  • will be able to take cover and will have an easier time

  • trying to survive a Third World War.

  • Number three, Malta.

  • Malta is a tiny island nation in the Mediterranean Ocean

  • and is, in essence, a small island fortress.

  • Throughout history, from Malta's days

  • as a Crusader state to even the Second World War,

  • empires have tried and failed to capture Malta,

  • meaning that an invasion of Malta

  • would be extremely costly, and, finally,

  • Malta's relatively small size wouldn't justify

  • wasting an entire nuclear missile on it,

  • meaning Malta may just be ignored

  • by the biggest combatants of a Third World War.

  • Number Two, Ireland.

  • While Ireland is a prosperous and developed nation,

  • it does not have strong ties to any

  • of the potential combatants of a Third World War.

  • Ireland tends towards a policy

  • of independence in foreign policy.

  • As a result, Ireland is not a member of NATO

  • and has a long standing policy of military neutrality,

  • and according to Irish law, in order for Ireland

  • to enter any external military conflicts,

  • their involvement must be approved by the UN,

  • Ireland's government, as well as the Irish legislature.

  • Number one, Fiji.

  • The remote island nation of Fiji

  • lies deep within the vast expanses of the Pacific Ocean,

  • which isolates Fiji from any potential invaders,

  • and, just like Tuvalu, Fiji has a small population,

  • is neutral in foreign affairs, and does not

  • have any resources within its borders

  • to justify an invasion of the islands.

  • To top that off, for thousands of years

  • the Fiji islands supported human settlements

  • and could likely continue to support human life

  • after a worldwide conflict.

  • If you want to survive a nuclear winter,

  • all you have to do is subscribe to our channel,

  • if you haven't already.

  • That's not entirely true, but you should

  • go ahead and do it anyway, just to be safe.

  • And if you want to hear my voice some more,

  • you can go check out my channel in the description,

  • and we'll see you all next time.
