The Top Ten

1 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

The USA could take over most of the world if it wanted to, but it is imposable for any country, no mater how strong or how technologically advanced, to have such a firm control over the entire planet.

My theory is that if Canada and the United Kingdom peacefully join the US, the country will have a large enough population and enough resources to do some real damage. Also, taking over the world would need the full support of the people of all of those arias in order to get a total war going, which would be essential for American victory. As many people as possible would need to be sent to the front lines and everyone else would have to totally devote their time to managing the home front. Than, enough new tech would have to be developed, medical technology, weaponry, ammo, etc, to insure a successful global conquest.

Uniting North America would be the first and easiest part of the conquest. Mexico has it's own problems with druglords and would be too occupied to put up a ...more

The US navy would be the deciding factor. If the can take the main oil supply, they could starve the rest of the world into submission. Their navy contains would also be a great help against China, India and Britain. Their biggest rival is obviously Russia, but the USA has MUCH more spare fuel for the war, so if it lasts too long, the USA wins. The US mainland has little to fear from invasion due to the navy.
*Does not account for nukes.

Usa is so strong it can probably beat china in war because better equimpment and have a better econemy and they barely have more troops then us and we have nuke a lot of casualties will be ut we wipe em out in 3 years

The fact that we're an island means we would sink troop - carrying boats before they got here and we wouldn't be nuked as the winds would blow the fallout straight back at the USA. Also we have an incredible navy and air force and we were the biggest empire.

A real great country, the only one European country able to fight against terrorism.

By the way France is just currently the 5th most powerful country in the world, the 6th greatest military power, the 2nd EEZ.. So should be higher for sure.
