No Surprises Here

Here is a map measuring the US Peace Index.  Blue is peaceful, red is less peaceful or just plain abhorent. I think I've spotted a distinct pattern. Can you see it too?

The US is ranked 85 of 149 nations in the Global Peace Index.  We have moved up 11 spots over the past 3 years.  The most peaceful nations are New Zealand, Iceland and Japan.  The least peaceful are Iraq, Somalia and Afghanistan.
