Most High Tech Countries


The Top TenXW

1United 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 ...more

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.

I think us deserve to be the most technology country in the world because they have prove to the world, in there economy us are at the top and if you myth have been in there country they have satellite all over there country and the us can detect crime scene when taking in any region or city of there country. In my researches I have also observe there technology in making research about thing that can better the world, things like airline it is a great to the world you all know I am not saying that Japan does not have good technology but I think the us are more advance than the Japanese thanks

No doubt, all the love for United States!

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 ...more

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

Most software monsters and IT geniuses are from India but due to lack of job opportunity in India unfortunately these scholars have to show their talent in other countries

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.

Korea have the fastest internet in the world

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!

I'm German, and Germany is an advanced country no wander why are cars so so expansive like the Audi bmw Mercedes those cars are so expensive here in the USA because there advanced cars

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.

On point in every way possible

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: ...more

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.

This country has helped make much of the technology we use today

I live on the border between Canada and the USA and the differences are staggering. For one, the infrastructure in the U.S. side is often poorly maintained and outdated. Canada appears to invest more in updating and ensuring quality than their U.S. neighbours. It is also clear that discrimination, violence and lack of proper education are issues for the middle class in America that we don't see here in Canada. The social development north of the border is obvious as soon as you step out of your car or just feel safer here. - Canadian

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

I feel China does not help in creating technology but the factories make it that's why many of the things we use are made in China

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.

Sweden has come up with a lot, us just copy.

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.

What a great nation

The Contenders


We developed vaccines for diseases before the US we have the best economy in the world. Australia is very advanced in the fields of science and innovation one of the best countries to run a start up business and entrepreneurial businesses.

We are secretly training kangaroo solders similar to the call of duty dog. This efficient solder is very effective on the battlefield, they are also capable to carry small nuclear bombs in there pouch to enemy forces

Australia has everything and it is very cheap not as cheap as China (no offense) but Australia has everything good

Can I just say Australia never mentions England and I am just wondering why.

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

We Live In Here And There's Many Tech Here

Peace is what we all seek. The richest man in the world is not one that has the most but one that needs the least

We don't have much technology but we have peace

16United 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.

I picked this country because they have a lot of spies and gadgets

Britain is the greatest nation

They invented the internet.

The GDP of most of the population is small compared to Kenya


Many talented engineer and the also show their performance by self support and with don't any economic fund & help...hard working country

Bangladesh have many talented engineer and the also show their performance by self effort. But, it is the matter of sorrow that the Sheikh Hasina Government does not support the engineers properly.

We have no gold mine but we have talent generation who can lead all over the world!

We have the 'Royal bengal tiger'
