Top Ten Countries Most Likely to Take Over the World

The Top Ten
1 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 United States is truly united, they are the most rich and powerful country, money is our currency, and Usa can handle everything.

This has to be the best country in the world, it's the #1 most powerful, richest, strongest, greatest, one of the most successful people and best economy, and a best country of all time. US is #1 almost everything. It even has one of the most popular sports. It's also a free country, has liberty, democracy and also republican. US is the best country. It's a big and also one of the most popular country in the world which a lot of people wants to visit or live in this country. Not every country are perfect. But it comes to like the greatest and the best it has to be America. USA will be one of the best country of all time.

In God We Trust
God Bless America
Vote for USA

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.
*Does not account for terrain.

2 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

Russia is BIG! I think they can take over land whenever. China is also big, most likely China and Russia will team up, making them top 2 and 3 on the most powerful.

Putin is crazy. He wants to take over Ukraine and possibly other countries like Belarus and Latvia, with large Russian populations. Basically, he wants to resurrect the Soviet Union and gain economic control over all of Europe. I wouldn't be surprised if they psychopath tried to conquer the world.

Russia could take over Europe probably, but not all of Asia or North America. South America would be a possibility though.

I hate Putin, but if Donald Trump manages to fix their relationships I'll like him. He just wants to nuke everyone!

3 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

China is makes all of our stuff here and is rapidly making a formidable army. They are slowly and strategically already taking over poorer country through the belt and road initiative. China does atrocious things like keeping over a million people in concentration camps without other countries being able to stop it. It is invading the South China Sea and doing so much more. America needs to start looking at this threat or start learning mandarin.

If anyone's going to take over the world, it's going to be Japan, Germany, Russia or this. China is bigger than Japan and Germany, so China could easily take them out. Russia could prove a challenge, but China will adventualy win with it's massive ground troops. without full, though airplanes are worthless.

Well one of the gratest superpowers in the world getting nice and tight with Mr. Putin in Russia another huge superpower. But I still root for america and its allies such as Australia Canada and the uk etc. Possibly making a war we would no like to see

Think about it, all our stuff is manufactured there, if they one day just refused to sell stuff, what would happen to all those rich clothing companies?

4 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe.

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.

We have done it before. When we parted with other countries within the empire, we never fully left and still have power within their governments.

As much as I love my country, this would be impossible now. Maybe USA, Russia, China and India, but not us anymore. We've already done it almost anyway.

Britian is going to use its overseas colonies/territories to take back the 'Commonwealth' as it has gained Britain a lot of money, also the United Kindom is leaving the EU which limits the restrictions on war.

5 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi.

What India ain't number 1 on this list? It will be the biggest nuclear power in 2030 (energy), biggest army in next 5 years, it already is one of the emerging global power with countries like Israel, Russia, Japan supporting it in terms of defense.

2050 India will be the strongest and powerful country in the world as it was before in ancient times India was richest and powerful country. The time comes back

I think India can win over all over the countries in the future but I know it will not do because it is a mercyful country...I think India should be the cruelest

Nobody can defeat india when it comes to the army it has the army of 1.2 million soldiers making it one of the most powerful forces in the world

6 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germany is a great country and will easily take over the world if joined forces wit japan and russia.

Although peacefully democratic, it is an European economic superpower thanks to ww2. It currently heads the EU, all the rage in the 90s.

Well they did try to take over the world 2 times no? Who says why not try it again?

Germany is nothing like it used to be 100 years ago. Today it is a peaceful democratic country

7 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

Anime will eventually rule supreme...

8 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories.

France won a record, which is epic.
Most likely to take over the world with wars won, this is the perfect opportunity unless you want USA to beat you guys..

France has shown how great is it, it's the only one European country to fight in more than 6 African countries against Islamic terrorism and that with great success. We should thank France and French for that. So YES.

They are helping us, African countries of south Sahel and CAR, to fight against Islamic terrorism, and they win. A great country, in spite of those who are only speaking, here and in the real life.

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.

9 Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. It is the smallest nation on Earth, and is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.

It may be small, but you never know!
Pope will be right at the sides of the troops

Canada is one of two countries that have never lost a war. The other country is Australia. If the two teamed up with one or more countries, Canada would definitely kick ass.

The Canadians will use their squirt guns filled with maple syrup, and slowly take over the world by turning everyone into taffy.

Because Canada can just take a few tiny countries puppet states and then just destroy some larger countries then with a large income and army, Canada is the world period, in fact with a good prime minister Canada could take over in just 20 to 30 years. Plus as a nice country even if not so, no one would want to target them.

If I ruled Canada I would get rid of Justin Bieber, we can send him to space with no oxygen. He can't go in the ocean because JB is so disgusting not even the sharks will eat him.

15 Netherlands

The Dutch will conquer the world. PERIOD. They are just simply better then other peoples. And with their tolerant attitude maybe they can educate the world on how to love your neighbor instead of hating them for being different.

22 Mongolia Mongolia is a landlocked unitary sovereign state in East Asia. Its area is roughly equivalent with the historical territory of Outer Mongolia, and that term is sometimes used to refer to the current state.

In the 13th century under Genghis Khans Rule, there mounted soldiers took 25% of the population under Mongol rule, if likely, the Mongols might strike again, invading both China and Russia.

Mongolians Huge Adaptation Ability Is a Real aid to Attack Both China and Russia Simultaneously, the Only downside to Mongolian invasion of the world is... Oceans. once Mongolians have a navy, there Unstoppable.

That Small Country, Yes, THAT ONE, the Same one between China and Russia once had the Largest Empire in Existence, The Underdog had Successfully Destroyed Both the Chinese Empire and the Roman Empire, They LITERALLY took over half of the Eastern world.

Fun Fact: Mongolia Has been the Only Country that has invaded Russia, Be Careful Mr. Putin
