Comparing the Nations

Most Murders per capita: By far the most is Colombia. The United States is #24. How other nations fared.

The United States is the nation with the most confidence in its police though none in this list dip below 50%.

Norway, Switzerland, and New Zealand have higher per capita drug offense rates than the U.S.

The U.S. doesn't even make the top twenty-five list for embezzlement.

Nor is the U.S. among the top 25 in number of police per capita.

The U.S. is - by far - the nation which per capita incarcerates more of its citizens.

In overall crime the U.S. ranks #8 per capita.

The U.S. is 20th in per capita use of the death penalty.

And there's a bunch of other stats which I don't have the time to list.
