6 countries that can survive a nuclear war

In 2021, a group of international experts assessed the level of security of countries in the event of the onset of the Third World War. The index took into account both the state of the economy and geography, as well as international relations and military spending.

Contrary to popular belief, a nuclear war will not provoke an Ice Age and will only cause a slight decrease in the average annual temperature.

Of course,

A country that is the headquarters of many international financial, non-governmental and public organizations. From the beginning of the 19th century to the present day, Switzerland has been viewed as a neutral state, serving as a platform for rivalry between world intelligence services and negotiations between warring parties.

Special political status, and

A prosperous European state with developed agriculture and industry. The state is not a member of NATO and conducts an independent policy, and therefore will not take part in the world conflict.

As a result, the country will avoid nuclear strikes and will be able to feed its population amid the economic crisis. The only thing the Irish should be wary of is strikes against neighboring Great Britain. In this case, all the British Isles will be in danger.

The most stable and economically strong state in South America, stretching along the peaks of the Andes. Despite the fact that the countries of the continent traditionally stay away from world conflicts, a new confrontation will provoke regional wars here.

You can calmly wait them out in Chile — since the second half of the 19th century, the power has avoided wars, but at the same time has a well-armed army.

According to the experts of the foreign publication,

This is one of the safest places on the planet. And since almost all the country’s authorities are concentrated in Moscow, they will defend the city with all their might.

The north of the country and Siberia will also be far from nuclear ruptures. However, this does not solve the problem of hunger and banditry, which will come here in the event of a deep collapse.

The state is bordered on the one side by the Himalayan mountains, and on the other — covered with jungle and fertile plains. Unlike neighboring Nepal, Bhutan is out of the focus of political players and will quietly wait out the global conflict. And in general, the country is not interesting to anyone because it is unnecessary.

A secluded, but very developed state with a stable democracy and the absence of foreign policy contradictions. Mountainous terrain, an abundance of fertile lands, clear water and a warm climate will make New Zealand a paradise on Earth, while Hell will rage around.

However, New Zealand is far from the only one in this regard. Tuvalu, Fiji and some other states will have similar conditions.

Israel is able to survive a nuclear war: the country has been successfully confronting the Arabs for 70 years and has shot down all missiles flying into the territory with the help of the Iron Dome air defense system.

Finally, in many countries it is difficult to survive today without nuclear war. Central Africa is one of the poorest regions on the planet, 30-50% of the population is malnourished, and no one will drop a nuclear warhead here. The authorities and the army want to win the war, not exterminate the population.
