Most High Tech Countries

The Top Ten
1 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.

Japan is the most technologically advanced nation in Asia and maybe the whole world.
Japan are developing super advanced gadgets like dimensional elevator, this elevator can transport anyone to different floors of a tower in just a second. Everything will be hologram and like an ultimate transporter.

And in weapons, Japan is developing gundam-like units that can fire lasers and can float in air. Some rumors said that Japan is developing a big barrier that can defend whole japan from nuclear bombs, and tsunamis.

SO OVERALL JAPAN IS THE SUPERIOR OF TECHNOLOGY.

Okay, this is obvious. Nintendo has in store some of the most popular retro games including Super Mario Bros, Tetris, PAC- man, and so much more. We also got robots in hotels, if you want that.

Japan is the most innovative country in the world because what they produce is developed by JAPANESE. These JAPANESE have gone through a distinctively Japanese education system. They do not need to import foreigners from everywhere. Note the highest IQ countries are mostly all homogenous, conservative, place a strong importance on production and engineering, and 4 out of 5 are Asian. The other, Italy, with the highest average IQ in Europe (even with the Anglo propaganda directed against it), also is relatively homogenous. Outside of Japan, the other high IQ countries export far more innovation through migration-- benefitting the countries hosting them (US, UK, Canada, etc.). Japan picks and chooses and "indigenizes" anything it imports-- in a way which ensures its "system" is not tainted, distorted or changed. This is a very important key to the success of the Japanese system. Westerners have been gaslighting Japan since the end of the war about the need to change their system-- not ...more

Japan, as an Asian country (not to be racist) is superior to america (technologically) hands down. America may be the world power but they will never out wit or out last the wittiest of the mortal races. The Japanese are one of the most disregarded genius races on earth. These Asians precede their reputation as smarts and wits. I personally am a nationalist and will defend the claim that america is the best country to the depths of oblivion, but I cannot overlook that one day Japan will take its revenge against america and claim right to the title "Most powerful country in the world." For heaven's sake let us hope that the Japanese will stay peaceful and benevolent enough to prevent another war from ever again bringing Armageddon back to the world. God bless us all, God bless America, God bless the entire world and all those who dwell in its wake.

2 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.

Well, I will cover a few essential fields of technology which will probably decide the future of humanity.

1) The Internet
The United States of America, more specifically, Silicon Valley, is the reason why the world has an internet to access. It is in the US where some of the greatest technology corporations of out time are headquartered. Just look at Google, Intel, Microsoft, Apple, AMD, Dell, etc. Fremont, California is, to my knowledge, the fastest place on Earth, in terms of internet speed. The US is also one of the few countries in the world that has successfully integrated technology into all of the aspects of life including military, medicine, infrastructure, and common homes. Looking forward, the United States has some very ambitious projects such as the creation of an online virtual internet within a closed system to test future viruses.

2) Space
The US was able to send man to the moon in 1969, and they have repeated this incredible feat more than 3 times ...more

Well I'm an American and this is a pretty interesting list. The reason people don't see America as technologically advanced like South Korea and Japan is that it's weaker in communications tech. I mean, America is a huge nation so it is technologically advanced differently than South Korea and Japan.

As a side note, East Asia is wowing the world with its technological advancements, but they love to improve on what currently exists while the Western world loves to think of new ideas. Therefore, the west is still pretty technologically advanced compared to Asia. After all, if you look at East Asia, only some nations are developed while some are developing.

Every nation has its own tech strengths, even Africa. I mean, they have mining so they're good at that!

If anything, we should wow at the European countries because historically, they literally had to start with no resources up there in that northern continent. Asia and Africa had a lot of riches.

The United States is the front runner in all experimentation whether it be in military break through a or I'm the field of medecine. The American government is close to 40 years ahead of where the world actually thinks they are; the United States is always many steps ahead of the competition because they have to be due to threats from all across the world. If people think the us government is only watching the homeland you are wrong because they are watching the world in a global network of servailence. Not to mention the United States middle defense programs that have created a shield around the United States and its allies. Also the United States has the largest private sector that is free to make progress in the technological word on their own which makes technological breakthroughs more common.

Due to stereotypes, we missed the first place to Japan. EVERYTHING Japan has made, we have already made first. Gundam-like units? What. We already have aircraft far more advanced. And much of that anime based technology is mainly due to obsession and fandom. We have invented FAR more than Japan has. Japan hasn't even set foot on the moon yet, you know something that was already done by us more than 50 years ago. The reason we're considered so primitive is because of stereotypes of the South. But in reality, were the most innovative country in the world. Don't let stereotypes fool you.

3 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. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

Wow. India truly is one of the most advanced countries in the world. Almost everything the world has and needs comes from India. Did you know, India were the creators of music, cell phones and the number zero? Including many more famous things that the world wouldn't run without even now. But what makes India look so "poor"? The population. India is a beautiful, hard working nation that the world can't see, from the clear blue waters, that are even more amazing than Australia's, to the ancient buildings, India is a country you can't describe with only one word.

"India's beauty can't be described by being read or heard. It has to be seen. Once seen, then there's no coming back."
- Queen Elizabeth

"India is amazing. The people, the culture, the religion, everything. It can't be described just like that."
- Albert Einstein

India the mother land of all sciences. We had medicinal science, war science, science relating universe and what not from the ages where other countries don't know how to get their basic needs.

Reasons why India is technically ahead from the start

* India has the first university in the world (takshasila 500 because) which teaches all varieties of subjects including science n technology.

* sanskrit was proved to be most suitable language for computer systems during study and even NASA is planning to use it.

* if war artillery is criteria of technology Indian king tipu sultan used rocketry during wars in 18th century itself.

* mathematics the base of all the technology we people talk is given by oua Indians.

* you guys say that newton discovered gravitation but what the truth is bramhagupta discovered it a thousand years before him, gravitical measurements also have a key part in many fields like civil engineering, rocket n space ...more

Just because it has over one billion citizens, if it had the same population as Japan or South Korea you wouldn't say that

British destroyed everything in India while ruling for 200 years and stole all the sources, ideas of intelligent Indian and showed this world that all those are British inventions. India is land of most intelligent people, look around you guys most of the doctors, engineers, scientists, CEO, founders and owner are originally from India. Even though many people in this world are resists towards them specially British. If India was not colonised by British Indian would have been way ahead from entire world.

All the software needed for technology comes from India.
Even silicon valley people take advices from Indians in Bangalore.
Don't believe me... Google Wipro and Infosys

4 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

How is this nation even #4? This nation's technology levels range near Japan's level! TONS, and I mean TONS of technology everywhere. Put this nation in at least 3rd place. Heck, it has even a faster internet than Sweden.

South Korea came in second place after Japan on the list of highest technology countries in the world. South Korea is rated one of the top best highest technology countries on the planet due to making advanced robots, cars, trains, computers, boats, air conditioners, televisions, helicopters and planes. South Korea is one of the world's best and the highest technology ranking countries. South Korea is also voted on the list of countries with the fastest internet speed in the world and South Korea is near Japan in highest technologies!

South Korea is the most high tech country.
#Fastest Internet.

#In 2050, South Korea will beat USA in economy and technology.

#County with the most high tech driving lessons.

#No dressing rooms, just a digital mirror to see yourself in different clothings.

#Has the most robots in hospitals.

#Shipped the most karaokes in the world.

#Shipped the most coffee vending machines in Asia (especially the Philippines)

5 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.

German technology, even though being parted after the second world war, is still top notch in the world. German engineers and scientists won the space race for the US. They developed the first nuclear missile (it's a horrible weapon but still an impressive piece of technology), the first car engine, jet engine, fully programmable computer...
The only tech industry which Germany doesn't either lead or at least stay at the top of is IT. In the cold war and it's separated status (BRD-DDR) Germany seems to have missed out on that sector a bit.
But giant Top Tech Companies like Siemens, Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, Daimler, BASF, Bosch, Continental are leading in the fields of electronics, cars, robotics/automation, etc.

Germany is considered the most technologically advanced country in Europe, and was like that all the way back in World War I.

Excuse me?! Why is Germany even on number 5?! Should have put it number 3 at least... Let me remind you, people like Albert Einstein, the German scientists and engineers, was considered to be one of the most intellectual and greatest scientists the history knew. Finding India and the U.S topping Germany was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Germans can be rude but brilliantly intellectual and advanced in thinking...

How is India 3th please tell my, Gernany is way better in technology then India, Germany should be 3th or 2nd after Japan and/or South Korea I don't understand this. Germany is popular by high tech, India isn't. Germany has very popular trains that use high tech example ICE (Inter-City express) and popular brands (Grundig, Siemens, T-mobile) and Germans use high tech in there cars.

6 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 the best and best country because of its technology ... most of the gadgets and mini technologies have come through China ...

Seriously I personally feel S Korea is the one that is ripping off a lot of counties. Some Samsung phones still have similar designs as iPhones and they cost the same price at about half the quality, I had a iPhone for 3 years which worked fine until I cracked the screen and the Samsung S5 I had for 1 years broke on me twice already, I had to get a Huawei replacement at about 1/3 of the price and worked better. The thing I dislike Korea the most is that they have been trying to steal others cultures and make it their own, they have been claiming the Chinese languages and Chinese festivals being their own while their country wiped the use of Chinese characters because they fear that they were too similar to China they even went as far as changing their Capital's original name's as the original name include the character Han which represents the largest proportion of Chinese population. And more than half of the supposed.

Not the king of technology. But no nation is. Each nation is high tech in their own way, Japan is good at making electronics and games, Germany is good with cars, USA is good with weapons, and China has made some of the most important devices, even though some have been around for a while, like the compass and gunpowder. All nations are equal in there own way, so nothing's best or worst. It's all good bro!

6?! What!? China is the king of technology! They invented lots of things in olden days such as the compass and gunpowder. And they're still advanced today, going strong on making cars, video games and more! China should be at least 3! They own!

7 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

France was the second represented country, just after the USA, at the last CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016 at Las Vegas. French startups represented more than 30% of Eureka park.

France is arguably the most promising country when it comes to hardware startups.

France is lucky enough to have some of the best engineering schools in the world. Students don’t just study computer sciences in these schools. They study electronics, mechanics and other low-level courses. It’s a better training if you plan on working for hardware companies.

Actually France is better that what we think about it, for instance France is Europe's most innovative nation and the third in the world behind United States and Japan as usual, 4th is Germany and 5th South Korea. Sometimes we don't expect such figures, France does not like to spread good figures, they have this 'to keep a low profile'.

France is really the future: "le plus gros incubateur de start-up au monde" = The biggest incubator of startups in the world" in 2016 will be more than 1000 startups.

Currently, in Paris it's more than 3000 startups for 38 incubators.

This Country is the most diversified we have ever seen, it's like USA in small.
Lots of different landscapes, architectures, fabulous gastronomy etc... Etc...

We Love France.

France is a world leader in space related industries, sattelites, rockets, earth mapping and observation technologies.

A world leader in telecommunication systems. Alcatel

A world leader in my defense related industries from nuclear submarines without propellers to advanced tactical fighter aircraft to civilian aircraft construction.Airbus, Dassault, DCN

A world leader in electronics such as specialized electronic microchips, smart card manufacturing etc.

A world leader in production of vaccines and pharmaceutical products.

A world leader in water and waste management companies. Vivendi, Suez, Veolia

A world leader in electrical component manufacturing ie: Schneider

A world leader in car parts: ie Valeo

8 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. ...read more.

The UK publishes more scientific papers per person than any other nation, plus the British have invented most things that have truly changed the world. Though Britain may not have as much expendable income as other nations, it is home to the many inventors, scientists, and engineers. It is true that the UK does not manufacture as much as it used to, but it still designs an astronomical quantity of devices that have shaped the world. Great Britain is the world leader in engineering, nuclear and quantum physics, medicine, and bio engineering and genetics, just to name a few.

The British are responsible for 54% of the worlds most important inventions. Pretty much everything we take for granted and use in every day life originates from Britain (and Italy). Television, Computers, Telephone, Radio, Fridges, Flush toilets, Lawn Mowers, Light bulbs, Light switch, Steam Engine, Jet Engine, The Underground, Syringes, Needles, Cat's eyes in the road, Discovery of DNA, MRI Machine, Fire extinguisher, Submarine, Miltary Tank, Machine Gun, Hovercraft, Scuba Diving Gear, Cork Screw, World Wide Web, Lava Lamp, Concorde, Police Force, Sherrif, Special Forces. Most of the worlds sports and much much more.

Still the third best producer of scientific papers. The UK produces the second most-cited scientific papers in the world - the first, if you note the huge population gap between the UK and the USA.

England made many of the famous scientists that lead to the Scientific Revolution, and Industrial, if you want that to count.

England is very high tech, on par with the USA at consumer level at the very least.

For a small island, we punch well above our weight. Let's not forget our language & music we have shared with the world. Well done Britain... We are in a very competitive world, let's continue to keep the GREAT in Britain, we need to continue to explore & develop our ideas.

9 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

I live on the border between Canada and the USA and the differences are staggering. For one, the infrastructure in the U.S. side is often poorly maintained and outdated. Canada appears to invest more in updating and ensuring quality than their U.S. neighbours. It is also clear that discrimination, violence and lack of proper education are issues for the middle class in America that we don't see here in Canada. The social development north of the border is obvious as soon as you step out of your car or plane...you just feel safer here. - Canadian

I know for a fact that Canada is way more technologically advanced than the USA. They took years to get wireless interface machines and they still don't have chips in their credit/debit cards.

US power plants are not as green. Even simple things such as a crosswalk that beeps for the blind, is rare to see in the US.

Sure they have Smart Phones and stuff, but so does mostly every other country in the world.

Even if you look at American companies, they are heavily employed by international people. For example: The Canadians who worked on the AVRO Arrow project, were some of the finest engineers who then moved onto NASA, making it possible for computers to pilot aircraft and spacecraft to this day.

Not saying that there aren't some brilliant American's out there, because there are! It's just that America is very quick to slap a "Made in USA" sticker on anything that is financially funded by them, yet still not invented by one of their own.

Q: Who ...more

Are they in America? Oh yeah they are. Canada is really bad compared to United States and Japan, and Finland. America has better Navy, and Aircraft. Really if you think about it, Canada might have eco green power plants, but they can never take anybody down in a fight. Great comment smart one.

Ah the Canada arm? Don't suppose any other country in the world has a giant ass space arm? Yeah I thought not.

Whats' that? We are building another, Oh that's right.

Also where do you think the Americans get all of their talent? Grade "A" Canadian D.N.A.

Another thing I should mention is our healthcare system, our medical technology is not only rather advanced, but also accessible.

Life saving cancer treatment that would otherwise cost nearly a million $ in usd, is pretty much free here.

The Government of Canada has put a large focus on technology in recent years, providing tons of funding towards STEM educational programs in universities as well as high schools. With tech hubs such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Waterloo gaining in talent each year, it would not be surprising to see the next big tech companies founded in Canada.

10 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world. Israel is a small country bordering Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt and its official languages are Hebrew and Arabic.

Israel's private industry is very successful. Israel develops one of the most hi-tech military equipment all over the world. Take the legendary UZI for example. Israel is also developing agricultural miracles such as a product that maximizes the crop's growth with half of the conventional system. Thirdly, Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita. Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, with 145 per 10, 000, as opposed to 85 in the U.S., over 70 in Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work force employed in technical professions. Israel places first in this category as well.

Israel has developed Intel chips, they have invented the flash drive, they have developed a massive amount of treatments to an incalculable number of diseases and conditions (Cancer, AIDS, etc.). They developed a large number of software, such as firewall and defense software and have contributed to the creation of many operating systems. They have developed the algorithm of sending emails. The technology of mobile phones was developed in Israel. Without Israel, the consumer lifestyle that many people enjoy that includes advanced technology and healthcare would not exist.

" Israel is ranked fifth Nation I the Start-Up industry considering the fact that there are only around 7.1 million people in the country. How is it that Israel a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources! Produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK? "

Most technologically advance nation in the mid-east and among the most technologically advance nations in the world such as in Medicine and Agriculture.

11 Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

Singapore is not the king of technology, but it is one of the most advanced. It just has so many achievements that if I stated them all my computer would run out of battery before I could. The comment under mine states the most well-known facts about it. The only reason why it does not break the top ten is because it does not have its own resources and instead gets them from powerhouses like China.

What? Russia, Turkey, Iran, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Pakistan, the Philippines are higher than Singapore? People did you really read the name of this list?

Because they have a larger internet population than Singapore

When you look at Singapore your first thought is how modern it is, Singapore is simply amazing

Singapore is a garden city and yet a top advanced militarized country only next to Israel.

12 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. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

We started the World Wide Web (Not the internet, that is different. )

We work with the US to create new and interesting technologies.

Many inventors and coders come out of here.

Our Universities (such as Cambridge and Oxford) develop ground breaking technologies and innovations.

I picked this country because they have a lot of spies and gadgets

The birthplace of industrialization.

The British were and are the most ingenuitive nation on earth.

13 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

Democratic Peoples' Republic of Australia:
Pros:
Great birth rate.
Great technological capabilities.
NATIONALISM!
Allies with Iran.
FUNCTIONING ECONOMY!
Their anthem, The Patriotic Song/Advance Australia Fair is one of the best anthems in the world.

Cons:
Communist, literally just USSR Lite.
Schools fill them with Nationalist Propaganda paid for by the Military Junta and GOvernor General.
INCREDIBLY XENOPHOBIC, even towards Poles and Americans. I'm Polish and I demand they respect us better.
What they do to Iranian Refugees they promised their ally, Iran, they would take in during the tough economic times Iran's going through is horrible. Seriously, with allies like Australia, who stabbed them royally in the back, why does Iran need enemies right now?

Australia has the highest lists of Mineral Production than anywhere in he world. It has so much advanced technology than the US and even though the small population, compared to the US, people in Australia use more technology (Ipads, tablets, computers) than the United States

We developed vaccines for diseases before the US we have the best economy in the world. Australia is very advanced in the fields of science and innovation one of the best countries to run a start up business and entrepreneurial businesses.

We are secretly training kangaroo solders similar to the call of duty dog. This efficient solder is very effective on the battlefield, they are also capable to carry small nuclear bombs in there pouch to enemy forces

14 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read more.

We have our optical fiber, one of the best cellphone coverage, best internet connection and infrastructure in tech/network.

We have, if not the best at least very very close to the best, submarines that even US have troubled finding on a short range. Our military tech regarding airplanes and artillery is in worldclass.

Our budget is not as high as other countries but we get the value of the money that are spent.

Sweden has the second highest average Internet connection. Sweden is the most eco friendly country in the world. And has the third best healthcare system in the world

How can usa have a higher rank than both Sweden and China?! I don't know much about england but I'm pretty shore they should be higher ranked than usa too

Come on, usa doesn't even have fiber in 20 % of its population. Without an good infrastructure (network and such) how can you call yourself high tech?

15 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.

It seems that this list was made by a kid whose definition of high-tech is Ipad, Ipod and iPhone. No, it's also spacecraft and space industry, Nuclear energy, aircraft and watercraft building. Even USA buys Russian rocket engines for NASA. Russian company "Rosatom" builds NPPs all over the planet Earth and of course the legendary weapons! Russian Military-Industrial complex knows how to make powerful, reliable and not overpriced weapons.

LOL: Russia is below Ghana on this list.
Russia's military and nuclear tech are amongst the strongest in the world. Also the country still has a strong math school, which puts it amongst the leaders in software engineers. Kaspersky antivirus protects a huge number of devises in the world, as an example.

Russia has the most advanced defense system in the world S 300,400 and S 500 and ICBM capable of penetrating into any country in the world and also space technology.

Can't forget Russia is the one who invented Space exploration! And to this day is the #1 in Space travel and technology. That alone should put it in the top 3!

16 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.

Technology is integrated in to the everyday life and relative to its size, Finland produces the highest amount of technological innovations. USA is like a third world country compared to Finland or other Nordic countries.

Lol you're kidding right Finland!, usa has literally created all of the mainstream techs, apple, google, facebook, twitter, instagram, microsoft

I am a Finnish fan,and we all know Finland was the first to pioneer Cell phone technology,enabling the whole world to leap forward a thousand years into modern communication technology! Finland is no. 1.

How is this nation lower than Austria? Swiss people are so internet savvy that it's unbelievable. Their level is nearly on par with Germany's with their internet everythings and watch-production. And Germany is #5 on this list! (Switzerland is #18)

What Switzerland is doing here, is one of the most advanced country in the world, in the top 3 as European countries along with Germany and France.

From mechanical Swiss watch to modern day fighters, from Cadburys to Nestle, weather... Everything is great. Hats off

The place I love the most

19 Estonia

Small but very advanced technology focused country with no critical legacy systems. Has the biggest potential to become the next Japan. Very strong and secure IT infrastructure. 4G coverage all over the country, even in swamps the internet speed is faster then some countries average WiFi. You wont see it coming, but this country will be leading the technology development of the world in a decade.

It's been proven and is actually the most internet and tech advanced country in the world. That just proves that this website is a load of...

Come on, this should be on top of the list. Voting online, e-Citizenship, and e-Government are some of the proofs.

Estonia is very advanced, especially for being such a young country.

20 Taiwan Republic of China was established in 1912. After the Chinese Civil War (1949), the Chinese government relocated to Taiwan. Its capital was originally Nanjing but now it's Taipei. Mandarin is the most spoken language.

It is ridiculous how Taiwan ranks alongside North Korea in technological terms. Taiwan's semiconductor industry is world-leading and is crucial to just about every single computer produced in the world, and should at least be ranked close to South Korea, if not equally.

Home of many high-tech companies that produces quality smartphones, computers, semi-conductor, and a whole lot more internal parts that are supplied to famous brands such as Apple and Hp

Famous companies that produce quality products include HTC, Acer, Asus, Foxconn, Mediatek, Quantum, TSMC etc.

I live in Canada, many public transportation systems are designed by Taiwan. Even Canadian think Taiwan is way better than Canada

Taiwan has a strong electrical engineering industry, and also one of the most precise metalworking industries in the world.

21 Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Though we could saythat the Philippines is now one of the high-tech country, it has yet to prove its High technology capabilities along with the most high-tech countries in the world. Philippines has one of the most talented and intelligent people in the world. One thing that I observed is that the government is not taking any much priority when it comes to science and technology. But based on what I observed now with the Philippines, the current government is now striving to cope with the modern era along with the most high-tech countries in the world.

I am using a laptop made in the Philippines, and it's amazing, fast and reliable, no trouble using it. I think the Philippines is one of the most technologically advanced country in the world, since we have had a nuclear power plant first before China made one, although it is not in use, and also, inventors in the Philippines have ideas which can give solutions to the problems of safety of people, the Philippine government is just ignorant of it, that is why the advancement of the Philippines in terms of technology is not revealed.

During an interview with former USA President George Bush regarding the question of a media personnel talking about the richest country in the world, he said.
