I dunno...I'd say the Victorian Era was pretty peaceful....
Huh?

Britain was at war, every single year under Queen Victoria... The amazingly bloody Indian Revolt of 1857 took place, as did the Crimean War, Opium Wars, Anglo-Zanzibar War, Taiping Rebellion, Boxer Rebellion, Boer War, Anglo-Afghan Wars, Anglo-Sikh Wars, and numerous imperalistic acquisitions. 'Pax Britannica' mearly refers to peaceful trading conditions, such as absense of piracy, not a lack of suffering amongst the common folk of the world.
