  1. Pretty much, if your country is in the news a lot for the kind of “if it bleeds, it leads” stories TV journalism loves, you wind up closer to the bottom than the top. Iceland is at the top, Syria is at the bottom. (Iraq and Afghanistan are list neighbors because, like Syria, active wars are going on inside them.) For a country not fighting a civil war, Israel is at an amazingly low position on the list, and all it took was never coming to a legitimate peace agreement with the Palestinians, and being the only nuclear-armed state in the Middle East. With some work they could vie with North Korea for the 150th slot.
