smileredunhappyAccording to the 2015 rankings by the Global Peace Index among 162 countries worldwide, the Philippines is on the 141st. Hugging the bottom line is North Korea.

Global Peace Index survey is being done yearly which started in 2007 by experts from the Institute for Economics and Peace.
