Most High Tech Countries


The Top Ten

1 Japan 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. 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 a 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.


Japan is the master of technology. It has sony, fujitsu, toshiba, toyota and much much more

Japan is still trying hard! Japan has the most famous companies in the world like Fujistu and more. Japan is the founder of technology!

Just to point out, these people are so high tech they make high tech things for the sake of it, like super intelligent TOILETS and game consoles that can READ your MIND literally.

2 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 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

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.

I think us deserve to be the most technology country in the world because they have prove to the world, in there economy us are at the top and if you myth have been in there country they have satellite all over there country and the us can detect crime scene when taking in any region or city of there country. In my researches I have also observe there technology in making research about thing that can better the world, things like airline it is a great to the world you all know I am not saying that Japan does not have good technology but I think the us are more advance than the Japanese thanks

3 India 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.

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

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

India Has plenty natural resource which is a need of any prosperous country. India's Economical and scientific attempt is rapidly developing and I am sure It will be top on this list very soon.
After independence it's economical condition is rapidly improve

I am indian

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

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!

Korea have the fastest wifi speed in the world =3

Samsung alone defeats Japanese competitors already. It's already number 1 in most areas. Although the auto industry is stronger in Japan, Korea is quickly catching up, once Japan loses its edge there, then Korea will dominate Japan in nearly every way in modern tech. Japan is declining, Korea is rising.

Most high tech companys are from korea such as Samsung or LG

5 Germany 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. more.

They have a really high-tech influence technique, just visit Munich, Frankfurt or Berlin.

Germany was the most high tech country during World War 2. They even have the best tanks in the present day.

One thing: Olympic Stadium in Berlin!
This stadium is a gigantic building and the most epic in the history!

They invented many things like Lugers and special Tanks.

6 China 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. Its capital is Beijing. The other major cities are Hong Kong and Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only more.

Not the king of technology. But no nation is. Each nation is high tech in there 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!

China has really surprised the world with the major developments its made. I would say that without a doubt China will be the worlds most developed country in the next 10-20 years.

Their ancient technology proved a lot better like gunpowder and so much more and I believe that it has the most steel manufactured to make weapons in the world

Yeah if all the countries pull out manufacturing in China say bye bye China

Of course China is the best. This country can copy almost all stuffs in the world.

7 England England

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.

Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee, computer scientist, MIT professor and the inventor of the World Wide Web.

All British citizens have access to brilliant technology. They have great faith in technology's use in day to day life and in business. They may not develop it, but they make good use of it.

England have set up very many space missions. Many of them don't include going to space! The. Scientist study extremely hard. A woman job was to listen to recordings from space for HOURS. Soon she found signs of activity because of patience

8 Canada 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 (size is 9.985 million kmĀ²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, more.

We make loads of amazing tech, and sell it to the US. Then they stamp "made in USA" on our work. The fine workers of the avro arrow moved to nasa, and now they say that their concepts are American. There is a surprising amount of canadian tech. It's just falsely American.

Canada is very high tech, although some tech is based on American research. Still, we have an ace up our sleeve.

We discovered how to lift things in space. THE CANADA ARM for the win. We also made an amazing warplane but the US said "You don't need that we will protect you". So now it's used for passenger transport.

Canada does have great tech's

9 Israel Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East, on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea.

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 is the second most important center for high-tech and innovation in the world after Silicon Valley.

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.

I am not sure about this

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

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

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

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?

Sweden is the most tech savvy nation on earth!

12 Singapore 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.

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

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

Because they have a larger internet population than Singapore - Golder

14 Philippines 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.

Ranging from different kinds of tech, Philippines is the most high tech country but the government is not revealing it because of the threats to the National Security. And we got the most sophisticated secret intelligence agency in the world. I've got to tell you we are more advance when it comes to espionage. Better than James Bond and Ethan Hunt.

This country has a nuclear plant which been made earlier than China's nuclear plants. This country has mixture of other different countries technology which can be combine together to make a better technology. Philippines is already rising.

However the project was cancelled and the plant is just standing there idly

It's the very best and I know it will rise and its already rising just watch

It Is An Amazing Country

Yes I accept the facts

We are much greater then that.
We need no competition.
