The Top Ten

United States
Well, I will cover a few essential fields of technology which will probably decide the future of humanity.

1) The Internet
The United States of America, more specifically, Silicon Valley, is the reason why the world has an internet to access. It is in the US where some of the greatest technology corporations of out time are headquartered. Just look at Google, Intel, Microsoft, Apple, AMD, Dell, etc. Fremont, California is, to my knowledge, the fastest place on Earth, in terms of internet speed. The US is also one of the few countries in the world that has successfully integrated technology into all of the aspects of life including military, medicine, infrastructure, and common homes. Looking forward, the United States has some very ambitious projects such as the creation of an online virtual internet within a closed system to test future viruses.

2) Space
The US was able to send man to the moon in 1969, and they have repeated this incredible feat more than 3 times after that. To this date, no other country has managed to send man to the moon. And now, the US is the only country to have sent a probe past the solar system (Voyager), and to have explored Mars with not one, but three rovers. Back in the 1970's the US was more than 20 years ahead in technology as compared to the rest of the world. Now, the United States has many planned NASA launches (as soon as they build a new rocket) such as MAVEN and Mars One. The United States is also the only country that has privatized space exploration with companies such as SpaceX and Virgin Galactic providing launches for the common person.

3) Defense
The US has, by far, the most powerful military in the world to demonstrate both its technological and engineering might. No other country has the technology to design powerful viruses such as Stuxnet, or 12 aircraft carriers, like the US has. The US also has the most powerful airforce in the world, being equipped with manned craft such as the F22 and F35(coming soon), which can virtually avoid radar, as well as bombers like the B2, which will appear as an eagle under radar. They also have the largest fleet of drones in the world, including modern marvels such as the X47-A Pegasus, and the MQ 9 Reaper. They also have very ambitious future technology projects that are decades ahead of the rest of the world.
US is the best country in the world and it will always be. America is #1 almost everything, best economy, military, most successful people, best sports, best places to go for visit or living, richest, strongest, most successful and powerful country. US is a big country. What I mean by that is it's a very powerful country. The size is also big, not the biggest country but it's at lest either 3rd or 4th biggest country in the world for their size. We have lots of people. You can even see almost every race. It's the third most populated country in the world. First is China, then second is India. It's also a popular country too. A lot of people wants to either live or visit USA. We even have all the good new technology. Our country has two types of governor which is Democracy and Republic. Now it's Democratic until every 4-8 years, when the election happens, it could either Change or be the same. It depends what people vote more of, either democracy or republic. Also we have liberty and it's a free country. We also won almost every war and even now except Vietnam War which wasn't a huge war and we didn't wanted to win that much so we stop and let go and Vietnamese won. That's the only war we have lost. Other wise when we get involve, almost every time we end the war which we always win. Plus again, we are #1 military, strongest, best economy, richest, and the most successful and powerful country. There's even a lot of nice beautiful places to see out there. And as always, U.S. will be the best country in the world or at least one of the best country in the world. Like maybe later on in our future like around 2040-2060, we'll be either 2nd or 3rd best country in the world because it will either be China or India being first. But we are at least the top 3 of all time which proves that we are still powerful. So right now we are #1, and again as always, America will be the best or one of the best country in the world of all time.

In God We Trust - God Bless America



The United States is the front runner in all experimentation whether it be in military break through a or I'm the field of medecine. The American government is close to 40 years ahead of where the world actually thinks they are; the United States is always many steps ahead of the competition because they have to be due to threats from all across the world. If people think the us government is only watching the homeland you are wrong because they are watching the world in a global network of servailence. Not to mention the United States middle defense programs that have created a shield around the United States and its allies. Also the United States has the largest private sector that is free to make progress in the technological word on their own which makes technological breakthroughs more common.

Japan is the most technologically advanced nation in Asia and maybe the whole world.
Japan are developing super advanced gadgets like dimensional elevator, this elevator can transport anyone to different floors of a tower in just a second. Everything will be hologram and like a ultimate transporter.

And in weapons, japan is developing gundam-like units that can fire lasers and can float in air. Some rumors said that japan is developing a big barrier that can defend whole japan from nuclear bombs, and tsunamis.

Japan is the master of technology. It has sony, fujitsu, toshiba, toyota and much much more
Japan is still trying hard! Japan has the most famous companies in the world like Fujistu and more. Japan is the founder of technology!
[Newest]Invent something that can people live on space

3South Korea
South Korea came in second place after Japan on the list of highest technology countries in the world. South Korea is rated one of the top best highest technology countries on the planet due to making advanced robots, cars, trains, computers, boats, air conditioners, televisions, helicopters and planes. South Korea is one of the world's best and the highest technology ranking countries. South Korea is also voted on the list of countries with the fastest internet speed in the world and South Korea is near Japan in highest technologies!
Korea have the fastest wifi speed in the world =3
Samsung alone defeats Japanese competitors already. It's already number 1 in most areas. Although the auto industry is stronger in Japan, Korea is quickly catching up, once Japan loses its edge there, then Korea will dominate Japan in nearly every way in modern tech. Japan is declining, Korea is rising.
[Newest]Just because america made Google, Microsoft, apple, and intel, it doesn't mean they have best tech, if Korea actually made those tech, they would be better, although Korea doesn't try to make those because they are already companies like it so people don't have to choose between two famous searching websites

All the software needed for technology comes from India.
Even silicon valley people take advices from Indians in Bangalore.
Don't believe me... Google Wipro and Infosys
India the mother land of all sciences. We had medicinal science, war science, science relating universe and what not from the ages where other countries don't know how to get their basic needs.

Reasons why india is technically ahead from the start

* india has the first university in the world (takshasila 500 because) which teaches all varieties of subjects including science n technology.

* sanskrit was proved to be most suitable language for computer systems during study and even NASA is planning to use it.

* if war artillery is criteria of technology indian king tipu sultan used rocketry during wars in 18th century itself.

* mathematics the base of all the technology we people talk is given by oua indians.

* you guys say that newton discovered gravitation but what the truth is bramhagupta discovered it a thousand years before him, gravitical measurements also have a key part in many fields like civil engineering, rocket n space technologies.

* Einstien the man who discovered e=mc^2 and is responsible for all the inventions in so called technological countries have said that we are thankful to Indians for their mathematics else we can never find all these.

And many more... India has been a conquered nation and its own sciences has been abolished and replaced by English education to make Indians lose their self knowledge and depend upon other (1835 lord mccauley). Now we are leaping back to the place where we were, from where we had been removed nefariously by western bullies. We have the largest educated workforce, software base of the world, advancing space knowledge and growing in all technological fields.

Being such a self advanced from early ages we are the only country with development who doesn't attacked other country from humans age noted (last 12000 years).

INDIA a country with technology for humans welfare for peace n prosperity

- NITCHAN indian
India Has plenty natural resource which is a need of any prosperous country. India's Economical and scientific attempt is rapidly developing and I am sure It will be top on this list very soon.
After independence it's economical condition is rapidly improve

They have a really high-tech influence technique, just visit Munich, Frankfurt or Berlin.
Germany was the most high tech country during World War 2. They even have the best tanks in the present day.
One thing: Olympic Stadium in Berlin!
This stadium is a gigantic building and the most epic in the history!
[Newest]Best country in the world

Still the third best producer of scientific papers. The UK produces the second most-cited scientific papers in the world - the first, if you note the huge population gap between the UK and the USA.

England made many of the famous scientists that lead to the Scientific Revolution, and Industrial, if you want that to count.

England is very high tech, on par with the USA at consumer level at the very least.
Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee, computer scientist, MIT professor and the inventor of the World Wide Web.
All British citizens have access to brilliant technology. They have great faith in technology's use in day to day life and in business. They may not develop it, but they make good use of it.
[Newest]England had invented many things (at least in the past), the engineering is also really good.

I know for a fact that Canada is way more technologically advanced than the USA. They took years to get wireless interface machines and they still don't have chips in their credit/debit cards.

US power plants are not as green. Even simple things such as a crosswalk that beeps for the blind, is rare to see in the US.

Sure they have Smart Phones and stuff, but so does mostly every other country in the world.

Even if you look at American companies, they are heavily employed by international people. For example: The Canadians who worked on the AVRO Arrow project, were some of the finest engineers who then moved onto NASA, making it possible for computers to pilot aircraft and spacecraft to this day.

Not saying that there aren't some brilliant American's out there, because there are! It's just that America is very quick to slap a "Made in USA" sticker on anything that is financially funded by them, yet still not invented by one of their own.

Q: Who invented the light bulb?
A: Henry Woodward (a Canadian)

Tesla only perfected the design, yet all we hear is 'Tesla' and 'America' when it comes to the light bulb.
Are they in America? Oh yeah they are. Canada is really bad compared to United States and Japan, and Finland. America has better Navy, and Aircraft. Really if you think about it, Canada might have eco green power plants, but they can never take anybody down in a fight. Great comment smart one.
Canada is the most advanced country in military technology, we just do not have budget for it hence why USA gets credit for building this and that...plans are being sold to USA by Canada,... After all we are bothers.
Because it's really happiest country

Not the king of technology. But no nation is. Each nation is high tech in there own way, Japan is good at making electronics and games, Germany is good with cars, USA is good with weapons, and China has made some of the most important devices, even though some have been around for a while, like the compass and gunpowder. All nations are equal in there own way, so nothing's best or worst. It's all good bro!
China has really surprised the world with the major developments its made. I would say that without a doubt china will be the worlds most developed country in the next 10-20 years.
Their ancient technology proved a lot better like gunpowder and so much more and I believe that it has the most steel manufactured to make weapons in the world
Yeah if all the countries pull out manufacturing in China say bye bye China
[Newest]China should be 2nd and India at 1st

France leads in many fields and has leading companies in many sectors even more than us
Nuclear energy infrastructure, people.
In France there's is more high tech in public than in Germany. This list makes no sense
[Newest]France will have the world biggest incubator of startups in 2016.

How can usa have a higher rank than both sweden and china?! I don't know much about england but I'm pretty shore they should be higher ranked than usa too
Come on, usa doesn't even have fiber in 20 % of its population. Without an good infrastructure (network and such) how can you call yourself high tech?
We have our optical fiber, one of the best cellphone coverage, best internet connection and infrastructure in tech/network.

We have, if not the best at least very very close to the best, submarines that even US have troubled finding on a short range. Our military tech regarding airplanes and artillery is in worldclass.

Our budget is not as high as other countries but we get the value of the money that are spent.
[Newest]The best doctors from around the world come from here!

The Contenders

Israel's private industry is very successful. Israel develops one of the most hi-tech military equipment all over the world. Take the legendary UZI for example. Israel is also developing agricultural miracles such as a product that maximizes the crop's growth with half of the conventional system. Thirdly, Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita. Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, with 145 per 10, 000, as opposed to 85 in the U.S., over 70 in Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work force employed in technical professions. Israel places first in this category as well.
Israel is the second most important center for high-tech and innovation in the world after Silicon Valley.
Israel has developed Intel chips, they have invented the flash drive, they have developed a massive amount of treatments to an incalculable number of diseases and conditions (Cancer, AIDS, etc.). They developed a large number of software, such as firewall and defense software and have contributed to the creation of many operating systems. They have developed the algorithm of sending emails. The technology of mobile phones was developed in Israel. Without Israel, the consumer lifestyle that many people enjoy that includes advanced technology and healthcare would not exist.
[Newest]Every other country on the list pursues development mainly for commercial reasons, Israel does it for survival reasons.

12United Kingdom
We started the World Wide Web (Not the internet, that is different. )

We work with the US to create new and interesting technologies.

Many inventors and coders come out of here.

Our Universities (such as Cambridge and Oxford) develop ground breaking technologies and innovations.

Russia is big daddy of heavy machines making
[Newest]Russia is the best!

Manufactures high end weapons such as Glock or the Steyr AUG. Known for high end audio equipment from AKG. Ferdinand Porsche: Austrian engineer.

Ukraine is not that bad

Ranging from different kinds of tech, Philippines is the most high tech country but the government is not revealing it because of the threats to the National Security. And we got the most sophisticated secret intelligence agency in the world. I've got to tell you we are more advance when it comes to espionage. Better than James Bond and Ethan Hunt.
This country has a nuclear plant which been made earlier than China's nuclear plants. This country has mixture of other different countries technology which can be combine together to make a better technology. Philippines is already rising.
However the project was cancelled and the plant is just standing there idly
Its the very best and I know it will rise and its already rising just watch
[Newest]Philippines is becoming one of the counties in the whole world with the most wanted and in demand medical services, other Asian and Middle East countries choose Philippines to study due to the rising of technologies that help students ease their study plans.
