Europe is the continent with the fewest people willing to fight a war for their country.

Globally, an average of 61% of respondents in 64 countries said they would.

Morocco (94%), Fiji (94%), Pakistan (89%), Vietnam (89%) and Bangladesh (86%) had the highest percentage willing to fight.

The country with the fewest people willing to go to war was Japan, with just 11% of respondents saying they would fight.

Since World War Two, Europe has been relatively peaceful with major exceptions of the Yugoslav Wars in the 1990s and various political suppressions during the Cold War.

However, the 19th century was also a relatively peaceful time for Europe that ended with the start of World War I. – BrilliantMaps.Com
