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 United States is famous for everything! We have the largest economy. We have a lot of technology, such as iPads, phones, laptops, and and so much more. We get lots of news every day, and the average citizen has much technology and freedom. I don't know how else to say more, but we have too much. I do not intend to brag, but all of this is true. U.S.A.

No matter how bad or good the US is, its the most famous country almost everyone know

Our culture is exported to the world. You are probably reading this using an American operating system, with an American CPU, with an American web browser, using the internet that American founded and still runs. You could be anywhere in the world (expect maybe Cuba, North Korea and Iran) and find American products quite easily, you couldn't say this about any other nation in the world. The same can be said with American fashion, music, films and television. They are popular throughout the world. When an American Presidential election happens, the whole world takes notice; this happens nowhere else in the world. How many people have drank Coke or Pepsi; or eaten at a McDonalds; or worn Nike shoes; or like an American cultural icon?

This doesn't even really get into the sheer size of the US economy or the military or our geopolitical reach or fact that we're still the world's only superpower.

There are many problems with the US but let's be honest; even then we're paid ...more

Every country knows US because of this stupid political world

2 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. ...read more.

Great Britain is the country which has created the modern world with the most inventions out of all the countries in the world. Britain has also invented the most sports out of all the countries in the world from soccer, tennis, golf, rugby, boxing just to name a few. The Magna carter is considered to be the first written constitution between the people and their ruler and has been the template for most other country's constitutions including the USA's. The British parliament is considered the mother of all parliaments and is the template for many other parliaments worldwide from Australia and New Zealand to Canada and the USA. England/Britain gave birth to the USA which is now the most powerful country in the world. The British royals are without doubt the most famous royal family in the world and the whole world is always talking about them, especially their royal weddings. The English language is the worlds most widely used and universal languages. Many British music bands are ...more - daintyapple

To be a pain it's actually called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. - ParasN2000

It makes me quite emotional, thinking how this one small island has managed to shape the entire world. And it can't be argued that we didn't shape it, we ruled over 1/3 of it at one point. The mother tongue of a small island race is taught in schools across the world.How on earth are India and the US above the United Kingdom? We gave birth to them, for god sake. Everything that's great about those countries were introduced or created because of the UK. How's everyone reading this now? On the internet. Who created the internet? Tim Berners Lee. What nationality was he? British. We invented more everyday things than any other country. We started the industrial revolution. Our music is listened to across the world, our literature is read across the worlds. London is the most visited city in the world. The reasons are endless. - englishlady

Probably the country that has had most influence on the world throughout history! Although the US is the worlds current superpower, it doesn't posses the same power that Britain once did in that it owned major countries such as India, Australia, Canada and even the original thirteen states!

I like the UK because every one is nice. and we have a great queen

France is the most visiting country on earth, a lot of variety for landscape, the best food ever and the French way of life is very famous

Amazing country, simply beautiful, very open minded. Don't listen to the stereotypes, all my encounters with French people were always really pleasant, I mean you'll have the equivalent of American rednecks everywhere, France too, but I've never met any.

Wonderful and famous country.
So various landscapes, there some villages which look to be villages of medieval tales.
France is like a dream, we had the chance to go to Tahiti, Moorea, Bora-Bora and Marquesas Islands. Besides the fact that these places are simply marvelous, splendid, is so amazing to know that it is part of France.
Here you have among the most beautiful coral reefs (UNESCO) and gorgeous beaches in the world.

France is so different, has a so rich culture and history and so peaceful areas to live in, it is the bucolic country.

And if you need you BBQ, no problems, here you can eat everything you want.
It is No 2 for McDonalds in the world after USA.

It's true that French are not the best in spoken English, but they are not the worst compare to some countries around.
And most of people speak only their own native language, so it's something understandable.

We plan to live there at least half of the time.

Vive la france

6 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.

In India you have snowfall region, desert region, forest region, plain region, mountain, hill, river, sea, beach, Luxury city, very poor village, ancient culture, morden culture, billionaires, beggars, almost all religions of the world etc etc. In short India is a mini world. You need not go for world tour. Just go for India tour.

India has the one of the best food in the world. Wonderful buildings and the festivals are the best

No other country is like india, it has more than thousand languages and all the religion in the world today are practiced here, in spite of many differences and disputes between us we always have "UNITY IN DIVERSITY".
You can't even imagine a traditional place like india especially southern part.

I like Shamara Aaron

The first man in space, ingenious art, intelligent, educated people, the brilliant scientists. I know that Russia was born from the ashes in 2000 and Russia continue to develop. For 12 years, look what has become Russia, Russia is regaining the status of super power and will not stop. I admire Russia. I wish you good luck and prosperity to Russia. (from Germany with love)

Only in Russia happened many things that never happened to world. I think it will be weird if someone didn't heard about Russia.

Russia is a nice country but the people are getting ruder and ruder, something like 70% of the people use swear words EVERY DAY, the other 30% use swear words once every 2 days, I used to like Russia, their president is nice but he starts insulting other countries, also he said they could win the world war without any help from other countries, and the people, they just keep shouting: Russia IS THE BEST, ALL OTHER NATIONS ARE STUPID, BO, see, that's why I don't really like the people.

Such an unique culture, rich history and super strong! People really tend to underestimate the richness and diversity of this country, and tend to know nothing about it, like, I swear everyone is just scared of them.

-the best chess players
-best Gymnasts and ice skaters
-Dimity Mendeleev (I think that's who you say it)
-Nature: Largest forests, deserts, deepest lake, tundra, temperate forests, you name it
-Traditional Food like pilimeni! and KVAS
-Smart people overall
-Architecture

Geez, there's so much, but people really just don't care, do they. Why wouldn't you like RUSSIA? I swear its all the propaganda. Putin is a super smart and very intellectual individual.
I SOOO WANT TO GO THERE!

(I'm Aussie by the way...)

Great weather, food tradition, history and culture- infinites monuments, paintings, churches, and it also has got wonderful sea and mountains, friendly and kind people, Italian women are one of the most beautiful of the world- see Elisabetta Canalis, Monica Bellucci, Sofia Loren (in her youth)- and Italian cities are the most livable of the world, not like American cities, highly polluted and caothics. The Italian food is, according to many food critics and experts, one of the most tasty and good of the world. So you have wonderful landscapes, wonderful woman and lovely people, YOU HAVE PIZZA and PASTA AL SUGO! What are you waiting for? Come to Italy, you will not regret..!

How can I explain... they did everything and if they did not do it they were always in the middle

14 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.

.. I think South Korea is the BEST! Because of their culture.. And today they have K-pop that has a good musics, k-dramas that has so many great actors and good plot of drama's too. South Korean people's are so good.. They are so beautiful and also a rich country.. :) South Korea Fighting!

South Korea is really a great country. Although it isn't all about Gangnam Style and Gentleman, it also has lots of countries. And people thinking that we make up a history about South Korea just to make it seem cool. It is not.

I think that South Korea is the best one, and I'm not saying this just like that, I'm saying this because people there are really very friendly and the schools and colleges there are the best for me!

I love em! South korea is the best country!

15 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 almost the safest country to live in. It has the second lowest crime rate in the world. Also, it has high standards of living, and has good alliance to other countries. Singapore may be small, but much efforts are made to beautify the country. Finally, Singapore is a multi racial country with lots of tourist. Therefore the tourists can easily get help, as I guess there are people that speaks different languages. Singapore feels like a mixed country of British, America, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and many different countries.

Singapore is the best country! Multi-religious, Awesome Singlish! Singlish is made out of many languages combined! Singapore also have Universal Studios and Singapore Flyer. The fact that peace is really peaceful down here, although we are related to one of the most emotionless countries

Singapore is a very nice country

Or the most sexist? Male only corporal punishments, male only conscription, womens charter bill, being gay is illegal but lesbianism is fine.
This country leaves saudia crying.

Egypt also hosts science, Technology, Engineering and literature. From political point of view, Egypt is among effective countries over the world.

18 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

Greece is one of the FIRST nations and countries which appear in history. Findings show that our civilization exists for over 10.000 years.

Top philosophers were born in Greece. Modern Greece has done some mistakes, but never harmed anyone. Learning our History until now days, shows the heroic spirit of our people and our nation

Worldwide known for the philosophers, mathematicians, thinkers etc born in this country. Home to democracy and other values. Cornerstone to medicine. Cradle of civilization but also known and respected for its long and ancient history. Additionally it is situated in a very strategic point joining Europe, Asia and Africa commonly referred to as the "three continents' crossroads" - a reason for strong controversy among countries as USA, Russia and China over their internal influence and deriving/respective rights.

I think they are known because of the peoples warm personalities and their ancient history, which is heard in school and influences a lot of movies in Hollywood

THE BEST!

Are you kidding me. We have to be more famous than Nigeria come on! Nelson mandela anyone?

South Africa has Table Mountain and one of the most beautiful places in the world

Are kidding me we are number 1

Must South Africa always compare themselves with Nigeria? They must be kidding to really think so. Whatever you want to think of are all in Nigeria good or bad. It's economy has now more than double that of South Africa. It's people you and I know are more brainy and sophisticated and you know it. What makes me laugh is the idea South Africans have in their head thinking that they are # 1 because they see Nigerians in their country. Look at Nigerians and really think if they are their for your government job or have something in their mind

I am proud to be a South African and it deserves to be after Russia and Canada. From Canada
