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 ...more - 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

It spends the most on their military and very good for their size.

3Russia

Russia has a total nuclear arsenal of around 8,500 while the USA has around 7,500. Russia still has around double the amount of tanks that the USA has. The new radar jamming system on their planes makes it so it takes around 4-5 missiles to even hit the plane effectively. Russian S-400 system can knock out pretty much anything any other country throws at them, for example, in Serbia, the Serbs used old Russian equipment but still downed a few F-16s plus a stealth fighter, imagine nowadays against these NEW Russian weapon systems! The Russian Armata tanks and armored vehicles are like playing world of tanks the video games, just point and shoot, no calculations at all, and the recent Russian cruise missile launch on ISIS shows that they can effectively combat an overseas threat from a large distance (The Caspian Sea).

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.

Most powerful without a doubt. It is a monarchy in Russia and Putin has all power and can do anything they want to do. They also have advanced military. Far more powerful and advanced than what everyone thinks it is capable of

Russia don't need causes for been the most powerful!

4China

China is seen as a "great" country because of its economy and military. While it's size of its military could be seen as lethal, they still don't have the same sorts of technology and training that the USA or even Russia has. As for its economy, it's disgusting. Their workforce is thrown into factories with horrible conditions to mass produce American product for a highly low pay. If you think China is "so great" or "the most powerful" please think again. -ryhaggs - Ryhaggs

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

Most of your stuff is from this country and if they stopped shipping you probably would be living a completely different lifestyle, so...

China is best powerful country

5Japan

I wonder how they became powerful. Even after the 2 Atom Bombs.

Japan leads the world in innovation and creativity, Japanese have a drive to do better and help their fellow Nihonjin. Their wonderful culture will cause Japan to leave the rest of the world behind. Nippon will rise again!

This country is extremely powerful, is one of the richest and has the best navy

O

Hospitality is a power for us.

Gave birth to modern civilisation as we know it, the industrial revolution, cars,trains,planes electricity,phones, had the largest and most powerful empire in the history of the world, and without us, the rest of the world would be living with their heads buried in the sand.

Did I mention we created the most spoken language in the world?

By re- unifying in just under 30 Years and building itself to what it is today shows that Germany is resilient and has proven themselves to be such a big weapon in comparison to the size of the nation.

A very ambitious Nation. Very powerful in every aspect. Could possibly the Number 1 Nation in the world one day.

It has the strongest economy in whole Europe.

It will emerge soon so beware

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...

Officially #4, has territory everywhere on earth on each continent

France is just an American puppet state. France is dead.

Ranked #6 from official organizations.

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.

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

10Italy

Italy is among the top five contributors to the NATO budget, along with the US, UK, Germany and France. These five countries make up the so-called "Quint Group", a very important forum within NATO.

What terrorism do you refer to? Maybe that one artfully created by the government of your Country... Assuming that you are an American citizen, of course. An American style terrorism, as well as 9/11... Anyway, Italy autonomously decides its foreign and military policy. Exactly like any other Western democracy. Exactly as France and Germany did concerning a military intervention in Iraq in 2003. On the contrary, Italy supported USA in that wicked choice, paying with a large number of soldiers killed in an absurd, senseless war.

Very very very very very very good

Obviously the US and some other major countries are more powerful, but come on. France and England?

12PakistanPakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia.. Islamabad is its capital and have a great population.. People speak Urdu and English as well..

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

Lost 3 out of 4 wars, 1 stalemate. Lost half its territory while fighting with India. Only nation after North Korea to play the nuclear weapon card.

Pakistan, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka was India's but it was separated. If we Indians had all these countries, we would have been the most powerful country in the world. Pakistan is the worst country in the world! I too want to step on the moon...as well as that star on its sickly flag

World best powerful country in the Pakistan

16Australia

Whilst Australia has a very small army in contrast to countries such as China and America it is not to say that Australia's military capability are equally small in contrast. Australia has one of the most modern and well trained armies in the world, spending approximately 25 Billion ( 1.9% GDP ) a year to maintain 58,000 active personnel ( 22,000 standby ) and equipment. In addition to this modern and well funded military Australian troops are entirely self admitted meaning that they've not been drafted into the defense force against their will. This has a variety of benefits, firstly being willingness to participate, as they're there by their will they're much more likely to participate and fight to their full potential, this is in contrast to someone in the military against their will who will not likely fight or participate in a similar matter. Secondly, Australia has one of the best trained militarizes in the world, this can be traced back to the the Vietnam war where Australian ...more

They are more powerful then Canada they have a better and bigger military and more involved in war then Canada they should by in front of Canada

Australia is the 14th best in the world ranked by obama

17Israel

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.

Its strong because it controls the United States

18South Korea

After Korean War, South Korea, everything was destroyed by the war. But they made 'Miracle of Han River'. Therefor I think that Korea has possibilities to grow-up of one of the most powerful nation in the world.

They have their own unique culture and also they recur their poor economy

This should be ranked way higher to defend North.

Must be high up

As opposed to a few other Muslim countries (not trying to imply anything), has slightly more freedom

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

20Brazil

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.

After 5 years sinking we still the most powerful in the entire latin america (Mexico, Colombia, Argentina,...)

Brazil is a superpower and although its up and downs (mostly beacause of corruption), it�'s the most powerful country of Latin America.
