2 New York, United States The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States. New York City is also the most densely populated major city in the United States.

It does deserve to be capital. You won't regret it. You'll love it there. It's not actually as crowded, dirty, or crime-filled as some naysayers say.

They don't call it the "center of the world" for nothing. Plus, it's an economic powerhouse with the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ.

When people think of big cities New York City is what that comes to mind.

It kind of is the world capital because that's where the U.N. Headquarters is.

Considering Imperialist Japan's ambitions was to make it the world capital, ironic.

This should be number 1!

This makes Paris the second strongest city in the world just behind Tokyo.

The district of La Defense is the fist is the largest business district in all of Europe and the first in term of number of skylines among the most famous.

Splendid city, architectures from ages to modern building, among the most numerous cathedrals and Churches, abundance of all kinds of restaurants offering top international cuisine and of course French one.

They tried that already, but then they dropped the ball and got beat up by some goth kids.

Rome dominated parts of 3 continents before, so 7 continents shouldn't be too hard.

The Contenders
11 Edinburgh, Scotland
12 Glasgow, Scotland

Yes, Glasgow is certainly one of the most famous capital en the world and in the top 3 in Europe.
Also Scotland is known for its famous castles, beaches and food.

This would be the best choice. It is about halfway between America and Europe. It's the largest city in the world, bar none (within city limits). It's not the capital of anything else. It's on the edge of China, on the sea, so it could easily be detached from that country to form a Federal District. China has more than a billion people, the detachment of Shanghai would not even put a dent in them. It is a modern and prosperous city, and it already has an international ambience. This would be the best capital for Earth.

The financial capital of Asia and soon the world!

Beautiful, clean and green City.

It should be the capital of china, No joke Shanghai should really be a capital of china
