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 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.

SO OVERALL JAPAN IS THE SUPERIOR OF TECHNOLOGY.

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!

Japan is the Most Advanced Country Generally and Technologically, Their Community is very good too, If they see a Stranger In need of help, they'll rush to the rescue. Because they Focus on Advancing their Defenses so their Country wont have to suffer Tsunamis and such. They are like Computers, If 1 Falls they'll Repair that One, And if they have a error they'll figure it out, If they have to do something to upgrade their System they'll do it.

So what i, m Saying is, Japan is not only Advanced in Technology but also in their Community.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

India is top most, because India has good technical minded and hardworking people and are very sincere too.,

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.

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.

1. Samsung now is the world's best manufacturer of Smartphones and Smart TVs.
2. LG is the Second largest T.V. maker after Samsung.(wiki)
3. Hyundai-Kia group is the world's fourth largest automaker after General Motors, Volkswagen Group, and Toyota.(wiki)
4. Korea has one of the best air defenses.(Red Alert 2)

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

China might be the only country besides Russia and the USA that can land people on the Moon.

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.

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 leads in many fields and has leading companies in many sectors even more than us

Nuclear energy infrastructure, people.

France will have the world biggest incubator of startups in 2016.

France actually has good technology, they have good a nice environment and nuclear waste infrastructure.

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.

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.

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.

9 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world but arab, african and east asian communities still can be found. ...read more.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

I’d say Canada would mainly specialize in transportation, space tech, and health care.

The Contenders

11 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.

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

12 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?

Because they have a larger internet population than Singapore

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

13 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read 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?

We are going cashless. Last time I had to use cash was when I had a vacation in the US. I think that's the measure of the forefront of tech.

14 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.

Finland has good healthcare, space tech, and infrastructure.

Just thinking of Nokia, not much else except brilliant health care and physics.

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.

A major hub of Nokia, previosly an independent company based in Finland. It leads in IT and mapping,

15 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?
Authoritarian Regime - Airstrikes on dissidents are common, just look what what happened to Blappeture Executive No. 1 on Steam! Internet is heavily censored to the point where you need to use ...more

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

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.

I travel between USA and Australia a lot. I can't believe how much more advanced day to day technology is in Australia compared to the USA. Australia makes the USA seem third world. It really surprised me.

16 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.

just weapon, the best weapon in the world
our crazy engineers make such things no one will see in his nightmare

I usually just think of awesome tanks on this amazing country.

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.

Russia is big daddy of heavy machines making

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

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.

The Swiss are very internet savvy, there’s probably a reason why they’re so neutral.

The place I love the most

20 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

Philippines is advance in terms of robotic assembled but there government have crab mentally, no support for inventors

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

21 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.

Taiwan’s technology is pretty good, could be compared to Estonian, Chinese, and Israeli tech.

Acer, Asus, HTC and more.

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.

Haha better than Korea

They are one of the largest weapons exporters in the world, and the maker of things like GPS guided artillery shells, stealthy cruise missiles, and explosive armour piercing incendiary machine-gun rounds.

It is number 1 in everything, it should be number 1 in this list to.

Norway needs to be higher than Sweden

Norway is the best

24 Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

How is Iceland below India, Philippines and Ethiopia?

Iceland should be in the top 10 Iceland is very adavaned country it's very modern in Iceland

Iceland is perhaps one of the more smaller countries whose R&D and technology is on par with countries like Japan
