23 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.

After a discussion with friends, we thought that by the year 2100 Singapore could be a world superpower, more powerful than the USA, China and Russia.

Singapore is increasing in wealth and is an international port.

Singapore's too small to have a huge influence

Singapore will die! "Marione S. Lim"

24 Nigeria

Nigeria has every ability in the world to become a major power in the world, but serious structural reforms in the political system and the constitution is very instrumental. Corruption has to be dealt with as well. Having major achievements in these areas will set Nigeria up for greatness on a scale no one has ever seen before. The talent is already there and is proving their abilities, even with the rough environment. An improved one is all that is needed for a wholesale take off.

One nation on earth you can never under-estimate is Nigeria. Nigerians are generally known to be hardworking and more also anything they want to do they do best. as for natural resources, Nigerian have almost every natural resources any nation or countries have. ranging from abundant Oil & gas, coal, steel, metals, precious stones, gold, limestone, Uranium etc just to mention a few. To add, Nigerians are naturally intelligent and are of a very sharp minded I. E the only black nation that can challenge any white nation in anything possible. their human force with about 70%-80% youths, springing up of technological industries and large fertile land mass for agriculture makes them a potential world power if only they will have a good leadership. and as a matter of fact, Nigeria is the only country o earth that can exist on its own without depending on any other country for anything.

The youths of Nigeria are rising in terms of technology and IT skills and with the abundant natural resources the sky is certainly the limit

Nigeria, the leaders of africa they can and will become a superpower, with a fast growing population and economy and a new anti corruption president MUHAMMADU BUHARI they will beat corruption and become a superpower

25 Italy Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. more.

"Italy will more than likely be the 5th or 6th most powerful country in the future for sure! "

26 Vietnam Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Vietnam has the same Confucian culture as Japan, China and Korea- themselves possible superpowers. Vietnam has shown great ability to reign supreme in battle, defeating France, the Mongolian Empire, China and the USA. Vietnamese youth are extremely intelligent and ambitious, as is evident in the US where many high paying jobs have a huge level of Vietnamese. Economically, Vietnam is now an Asian Tiger, and has caught up to Thailand and the Philippines despite being weakened severely by the Vietnam War and the failure of Communism. I believe that around 2070, Vietnam will be a formidable power to fear.

Vietnam has a booming economy. It has shown great intelligence by its ability to: defeat the US and China in battle and has hastily rebuilt n almost non-existent economy. The persistence of young Vietnamese especially in the United States is also evident, with many high paying jobs having a significant amount of Vietnamese. This is due to their Confucian culture- one which is shared by Korea, Japan and China- also great powers economically and militarily. Therefore, I believe that Vietnam will become a superpower (if not then a regional power), although it will take a long time (maybe 2060).

Yeah! This country really rocks on history, science, technology and all that kinds of stuff! This is the runner-up for future superpower in SEA Region! Climb up with 2 notches or more! This is the premiere fashion & "TOP MODEL" capital of Asia!


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

The Swedish Military has the greatest opportunity to become a world power, because it is not limited by the many redundancies a country would receive in Nato, And the Swedish people have the willpower to strive for more power, unlike the U.S. and other Natori powers whof let there military whittle and rot away over time. Sweden also has little poverty unlike India, China, Russia, and Turkey.

If anything from The Norway above, Sweden is more likely than Norway, DUe to Sweden's Military Is the strongest one in Nordics.

28 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

Together with Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, Norway will form Scandinavia and Oslo will be the capital. This proud Viking nation will have natural resources, fish, smart people, beauty and industries. It will be the only self sufficent country in Europe and the worlds 7:th largest country.

Cause its the best country on earth considering GDP, HDI, Employment; etc together and the world will search for the good nations, therefore it will unite Scandinavia to one country, dominate EU instead of Germany and with weakened countries on the other parts of the planets:

29 England England

England is my city

Why does everyone hate England now. Like honestly England is better than the place I'm in rn.

England is not a contry

Cus why not

30 Afghanistan Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Afghanistan could become if realize who is friend and who is enemy. India will never be a friend of Afghanistan. This is same India which was supporting Russian aggression on us in 80s. We are muslim and we have to stick together with our Neighbor Pakistan instead of India killer of thousand muslims.

Able to defeat 2 superpowers within 40 years - ThatOneDude

Afghanistan been superpower until mid 19 century, after that Russia and Britain destroyed our country and also USA.
But have hope for 2024 to become again a power

31 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

A large young population and it has great potential because of economic reforms which are soon to come.

Basic economical reforms were made. Full army modernization programs are on.

32 European Union

We have to do it. Create a terrifying empire of international economic cooperation, sustainable development and social welfare. We will raze the lands of our enemies and leave behind consumer protections and cell phone plans with no international roaming charges. All neighboring states will fear our vast army that will assist in managing the controlled migrations of populations and ensuring peace in conflict ridden areas. No one will dare go against our demand to come to democratic compromise in which every party has its voice heard. This will be the empire of empires. - virtuallyvirtuous

If we united we would be one of, if not the best country in the world. GO TEAM Europe!

In the near future Europe will be unite and will become a federation like USA.

The European Union has an enormous potential to be a superpower. It's democratic, forward thinking, technologically advanced, has some very progressive members such as The Netherlands and Sweden and if Macron succeeds with his reforms the EU can truly become a superpower of the 21st century. - WatcheroftheSkies

Saudi Arabia, not just being one of the strongest country in the Middle East, but is the largest exporter of oil. Saudi Arabia's economy is very stable and still developing by time. Saudi Arabia has one of the strongest military and spends billions on it. With Maka, the destination for all the Muslims, all around the world. And Saudi Arabia is improving and will become one of the superpowers on day. Hopefully.

35 Portugal Portugal Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

Honestly in surprised it wasn't mentioned yet but Portugal is a growing nation with a rising economy and should be on this list

How is Portugal under Nigeria? And Greece? If Portugal gets some more capitalists elected I think they will improve.

Who cares about been a super power love care and peace that's all we need vi a Portugal

36 Catalonia

Catalonia isn't a country

37 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

Kazakhstan tends to be overlooked on the world stage. It is the worlds 9th largest country and has an abundance of natural resourses including huge reserves of oil, gas and gold to name a few. While true that it does face large environmental problems due to it's Soviet past, if it can overcome these (and it could certainly do this due to its potential wealth), then I would certainly keep an eye on this Asian giant to feature significantly in world affairs, I'd bet sooner rather than later.

Number one exporter of potassium! - Shadowpaev

Kazakhstan is sooo cool

Kazakhstan has the biggest and most demanded cosmodrome called 'Baikonur'
