Most Powerful Countries In the World


The Top TenXW

1United States of America

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.

VOTE FOR USA - JustRandomDude

Declining rapidly? Please do not listen to that man. WE have the largest economy, double the size of China, in second place. Our military budget tops everyone, and we provide the most foreign aid out of any country. Please don't criticize us, when you don't realize that you couldn't be anything without us.

No doubt America is powerful are military budget is 48% of the world that's more than Europe or China and Russia combined, this comes with are high economic power too, most powerful city in the world is located here, 315 million people live here

God Bless America and all the men and women who make our country on top - kylermikkelsen_

Russia have a high rank in army and defense. New Technics in defense also a speciality of Russia. Also they are top in Introducing new inventions. They are top in IT. The first man to space is from Russia.

Russia has one of top armies in the world. It also has world biggest amount of natural resources. And of course the most nukes.

Russia should be #2. Russia has the second most powerful military and only about 300 nukes away from having more than US.

Actually Russia is the most powerful and dangerous country for everyone

China is the innovative leader of the future, with a large workforce, a booming economy and cutting-edge technology. China will revolutionise the world!

China is a home to all of us. It's a country that puts all of our thoughts together. China has the largest population and always improving. Without China today, USA won't have imported goods and such technolgy as today. We should respect China even through its not your country.

India and Russia above China? Really? China is the second world superpower and will dominate the 21st century.

You can't tell this site's mainly used by deluded yanks, can you? Lol

It's the most inventive of any nation in the world, and the only thing they haven't invented is God, but that could be debatable.

England is in Great Britain so how can Great Britain be 9th and England 8th? I think England (Great Britain) should be 5th.


Great. This list has England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. What the heck?

France is in the top five due to its Nukes and force de frappe which can hit anywhere in the world in a short span of time... The shame is that the socialists are ruining the economy...

9United Kingdom

Italy ranks at the nineth place in the World for military budget, is the fourth nation in the Word for military peace-enforcement expeditions, and is the sixth nation in the World for UN budget

Very very very very very very good

The Contenders


Large army, defeated in 3 times out of 4 wars even though India had at least 5-10 times larger army. It's the only Muslim country with declared nukes, defeated the superpower Russia with its proxy war in Afghanistan fought by the afghan mujahideen. America cannot do anything about the Pakistanis double crossing them when it comes to Afghanistan. What we need to realise is Pakistan is not going to fully support us with our war in Afghanistan as Afghanistan is a; Muslim country, neighbour (with a large border), similar cultures, food and dress, and there are tribes that live on both sides of the border. I hope Pakistan remove the terrorists from their land as USA is not capable to fight Muslim guerillas

Pakistan is very peaceful country and also give message to world live peaceful, but if any country dare to fight so we defeat them. Go back to history see example we defeated India 3 times.

Pakistan is powerful county then India and USA because now a days Pakistan handle some dangerous cases this case are not handle India, USA and other countries

We live in the desert go Pakistan!

Brazil has been going up economically and in power, it is the first Southern American county to host the Summer Olympics. It is the most powerful, and biggest nation in South America, and has had steady economic growth.


It has a small army but it has powerful allies which are Chaina and the members of the 5 power defense agreements wich are the UK, Singapore, Australia and New Zeland which in turn these 5 alliances have powerful allies such as Russia, the EU, Canada and even the US this because Malaysia is such a peaceful nation, it is one of the most advance nation in biotechnology but Malaysia is the most advance in palm oil technology so their allies will have good products from the nation


Dude, 09ShamsulBahriel, the only reason Israel has not been bombed is that the USA and Israel are allies, and people are afraid that if they invade Israel is that US would step in and declare war. Studio learn your facts before you make a stupid statement like that. Also if the USA did fall first in line to claim or power would be UK or South Korea.

Yo you suck to the person that said USA will fall, look at you and your country, and people Israel is not putting up zombie walls, I bet they would fall first, ( world war z)... And Usa should be number one, Israel not strong at all, agree with me Americans! And first ten are correct!

You try and ignore and belittle Israel at your peril. Stop harassing Israel. A strong people with the guts to defend their country and their way of living. The only real democracy in the region.
