The Top Ten
Well, actually you tried to (and still are trying to) do it. There are not even 30 countries in the world UK didn't try to conquer. Just a fact. I'm not against UK at all, but most people who tried to obtain power usually didn't govern accurately. I wouldn't vote as capital city any of the cities of the "Developed Countries" but I'd rather choose one of the countries that are emerging. In fact, I don't think there should even be a World Capital, for that could create a centralization that could lead to inequity and confront. Politics is complex as it's almost impossible to satisfy everyone. - keyson
Sorry about the partiality with the developing and the developed nations, but you cannot guarantee that at one stage the developing nations will be more developed than the previously developed nations. - yatharthb
Are you developed under developed or nearly developed or over developed. Or are you still unsure of your development. - Champmash
Best city in the world bar none, something for everyone here.
Tokyo has been the capital of Japan for more than 400 years and been peaceful. it has by far more tradition and technology than any other cities has. It also has energy to create new things.
Considering Imperialist Japan's ambitions was to make it the world capital, ironic.
The largest City in The World can be the World Capital!
This should be number 1!
It kind of is the world capital because that's where the U.N. Headquarters is.
It doesn't. You'll regret it. You'd hate it there. It's already over crowded, dirty, full of crime, etc pick some other place
When people think of big cities New York City is what that comes to mind.
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.
Paris is economically one of the three strongest cities in the world, bustling with economic activities and also a "Grand" and beautifully made city thanks to Napoléon III & Haussmann. Paris as a city also has the second largest revenue amongst it's companies at around 1.4 trillion USD per year.
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.
So many theaters, exhibitions, festivals etc...
And that also through the country France.
I don't think there should be a world capital since cities are horrid that is why there should more suburbs on this list. - ketchup
I think that it is a bit too small to be the world capital - yatharthb
Love it! - PopGeorge1678
Hitler once made it the greatest city in Europe, but imperialists did nothing to develop it. - yatharthb
Berlin is 1 of the best In europe - TheChipotleAnt
I think Putin would agree.
Yes, just to put America down to be honest, east should've won the Cold War
No offense, but seriously? Moscow? The
Whole world would be screwed then!
Umm... You do realize that Moscow IS the capital of Russia?
I like sydney that's why
The most beautiful modern city in the world
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.
Rome is a dirty city, chaotic and Italian are among the worst people in the world and certainly the most lazy, arrogant, rude, obsolete of western Europe.
They tried that already, but then they dropped the ball and got beat up by some goth kids. - Torchpost
Rome dominated parts of 3 continents before, so 7 continents shouldn't be too hard. - ethanmeinster
Rome is one of the most beautiful cities of the world for its rich architecture and beautiful monuments and more - Alessandro
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.
It should be the capital of china, No joke Shanghai should really be a capital of china - TheChipotleAnt
The financial capital of Asia and soon the world! - PolishGuy
Beautiful, clean and green City.
Toronto deserves to be the capital instead of Ottawa!
The most idyllic western city ever!
Always the best...
Istanbul was every time the world capital in history. Byzantine - Roman - Ottoman Empire. On the world map its excatly in the center of Europe, Asia and Africa, the only city on 2 continents, multicultural, over 20 million population, historical buldings from every empire, centre of christians, jews and muslims in history etc.etc. - Xenothor
Istanbul is already called the capital of the world. A city where Europe and Asia meet
Istanbul is the hub of world between east and west
Istanbul should be at least among the top three.
Istanbul (once called Byzantion, Nova Roma, Constantinople, etc.) was the capital city of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, meanwhile it is the primate city of Turkey. The city literally bridges the gap between the continents of Europe and Asia.
Even the world's economical center of gravity is shifting towards the Pacific, Istanbul's geopoliticial importance still remains thanks to the Bosphorus Strait.
Many people have admired the city's unique location. Napoléon Bonaparte is quoted as saying, "If the Earth were a single state, Constantinople would be its capital."
COOL - PopGeorge1678
What would the world be like if India wasn't there?
Of course it should.
It is geograpthycaly centre of world
Yeah it shd be on top 3 at least
Dubai is more of a tourist destination than a economic or Cultral capital.and people only see the good side of Dubai.no one considers the human rights problems or the poverty that the workers have to face.and plus.It's BOILING HOT. - 12cc
Chicago by far should lead the city cause Chicago is bad ass plain any simple
Food, architecture, places to go, sports teams, THERE THE BEST AT EVERYTHING
I love Chicago, they have music, food, sports. It is a perfect city. Well, unless you count the 107 year cubs losing streak, GL cubs fans :) (i'm not hatin. )
It has beaitiful builds and amazing views of the lake. Chicago is the greatiest city
It might sound silly but aliens won't attack us if they see Kim Jong un in charge of this place. They'll just think "if the rest of this planet's like that, then we can't be bothered invading them
Kim Jong-Un's dream, may never become reality - yatharthb
Hey, Watch Out. Pyongyang is developing really fast under Marshal Kim Jong-Un, It certainly can become the capital of Korea after the reunification. - yatharthb
LOL 😁 really. You have better luck picking Iceland!
It's the tourism capital of North America, festival heaven! Great infrastructure, it feels like Los Angeles but improved!
Festivals EVERYWHERE! Montreal would be nice for a world capital honestly!
Multicultural. Secure for a big city
Yes it sure deserves world capital
Not only the greatest city in the U. S but the most diverse city in the world. Without LA there wouldn't be Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Studio City and a lot of headquarters of famous businesses. All the celebrities live in the Bel-Air Estates and LA is just a big cultural city that could be the center of the World.
Really? the most phoney city in the world? Who cares about all the celebreties who live there in their extravaganza houses? Are they gonna start to tell the world how to live ( they do it already now but it would be worse ) our lives?
It's south africa, a great place
The country that gave the world light just needs some good leaders instead of the corrupt ones of the recent past.
great people, great food, extremely beautiful and full of history.
Only in Ayatollah Khomeini's wildest wet dream would that ever happen.
It should be the world's capital
Machu Picchu in the top of the world! :D
A great city, should be higher than sydney
Safe, vibrant, and tolerant city, deserved better spots.
A brilliant city. Friendly and safe. Could certainly teach us in the west a thing or two
Safest and most well kept city and country in the world...
