Our Place in the Universe: 39th most peaceful state
Southern hospitality doesn't necessarily result in a peaceful environment, evidently. The org that maintains the Global Peace Index ranked each state from most peaceful to least, and the South dominated when it came to hostility. Georgia came in at 39, as BuzzFeed reported
. The North and less populous regions appear to be the most peaceful. If you really want to escape the hate, your best chance is the Pine Tree State. On the other hand, if you want to revel in the area's apparent signature lack of cordiality, head to the Pelican State. Hey, at least we beat 'Bama!
Here are the top five most peaceful states, along with some notable Southern destinations (all quite far from the top):
2. New Hampshire
5. North Dakota
32. North Carolina
42. South Carolina
