I prefer the term "Anglosphere". Anglo-Saxon seems archaic to me and sounds pejorative since it's commonly used in a sneering term by other Europeans against the Brits somewhat.

Anyway, back to subject, yes there are plenty of countries in the world where parents don't have to worry about their children going outside.

However, Japan is really safe from what I hear.
