Antarctica has no operating nuclear reactors, and no research reactors.
Austria has two research reactors, but a public vote shut down a brand new never fueled reactor, called Zwentendorf.
Atomic Institute of the Austrian Universities in Vienna — 250 kWTRIGA Mark II research reactor (in use since 1962)
Australia is the largest country with no nuclear plants in the world and no plans to build any. It is also geographically separated from most countries that do operate nuclear power plants, so in case of a Carrington Effect holocaust, this country would more than likely come through it the best. It is probably one of the safest places on the planet for those concerned about nuclear radiation.
Bangladesh has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors.
Belarus has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors.
Belgium is considering phasing out its nuclear plants, perhaps as early as 2015. It currently still has two plants operating. 
Belize has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors.
Brazil has one nuclear power plant in Angra Dos Reis, and another under construction, but the political fallout from having a nuclear plant in a tourist city and a sanctuary for marine life has stopped further construction or planning for any other nuclear plants. Originally, 6 nuclear plants were planned to be built, but only one was completed. On our scorecard, that is five out of six shut down, preventatively. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angra_Nuclear_Power_Plant
Cambodia has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors. Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville are the best expat places to live.
Columbia has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors. It is also an affordable place to visit or live. There are no reactors in Central America at all.
Costa Rica has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors. Central America is almost completely nuclear reactor-free. Only Mexico has two nuclear power plants. Costa receives over 90% of it’s energy from water and wind sources, making it the greenest nation on Earth. There are no Costa Rica military bases. Approximately 25% of the country is made up of national parks. This is a favorite tourist attraction and many expats live here.
Cuba has no operating nuclear reactors, and no research reactors.
Juragua Nuclear Power Plant was a nuclear power plant under construction in Cuba when a suspension of construction was announced in 1992 following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the termination of Soviet economic aid to Cuba.
Russia and Cuba sought third-country financing to complete the plant in the mid 1990s but in 2000 the two countries agreed to abandon the project.
Denmark has no current operating nuclear reactors. All research reactors were also shut down.

Montalto di Castro – BWR, 2 units of 982 MWe each, mothballed in 1988
The local residents no longer want nuclear power but on the industry and national government side, pressure is mounting to restart all reactors, potentially starting with the ‘breeder’ reactors that are used to make weapons grade plutonium for nuclear bombs.
Kazakhstan has no operating nuclear reactors, and one research reactor.
Aktau (Kazakhstan State Corporation for Atomic Power and Industry) Aktau was once the site of a nuclear power station. The BN-350 FBR went online in 1973, and closed in 1999.

Libya has no operating nuclear reactors. It does have a small research reactor.
Tajura Nuclear Research Center, REWDRC (see ) – 10 MW research reactor (supplied by the USSR)
One nuclear plant is under construction; hopefully a public vote will shut that down or stop it’s construction.
Nepal has no nuclear reactors and no research reactors. Nepal is powered by hydropower, which is great in the summer when it rains, but bad in the winter when the water freezes, and rolling blackouts are common. Despite this, it is the most green country on Earth as far as energy sources.
New Zealand has no operating nuclear reactors, and no research reactors. The country gets more than 50% of it’s energy needs met with water power, so it among the most ‘green’ countries on Earth.
Upwind of New Zealand is Australia, so we are talking about a remote country, far away from any nuclear radioactivity sources. Like it’s neighbor, it is separated from the Northern Hemishere by a boundary that crosses the middle of the Earth, not allowing radiation into the Southern Hemishere.

GLOBAL DECLINE OF NUCLEAR ENERGY
“The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2010-2011 is authored by Mycle Schneider, Antony Froggatt, and Steve Thomas and published by the Washington-based Worldwatch Institute. The foreword is written by Amory Lovins.
According to the report, the international nuclear industry has been unable to stop the slow decline of nuclear energy. The world’s reactor fleet is aging quickly and not enough new units are coming online. As of April 1, 2011, there were 437 nuclear reactors operating in the world, which was seven fewer than in 2002. The Olkiluoto plant has had particular problems:
The flagship EPR project at Olkiluoto in Finland, managed by the largest nuclear builder in the world, AREVA NP, has turned into a financial fiasco. The project is four years behind schedule and at least 90 percent over budget, reaching a total cost estimate of €5.7 billion ($8.3 billion) or close to €3,500 ($5,000) per kilowatt.
The report says that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster is exacerbating many of the problems that nuclear energy is facing. There is “no obvious sign that the international nuclear industry could eventually turn empirically evident downward trend into a promising future”, and the Fukushima nuclear disaster is likely to accelerate the decline. With long lead times of 10 years and more, it will be difficult to maintain, let alone increase, the number of operating nuclear power plants over the next 20 years. Moreover, says the report, it is clear that nuclear power development cannot keep up with the pace of renewable energy commercialization.
