1 United States of America United States of America 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.

US is the best country in the world and it will always be. America is #1 almost everything, best economy, military, most successful people, best sports, best places to go for visit or living, richest, strongest, most successful and powerful country. US is a big country. What I mean by that is it's a very powerful country. The size is also big, not the biggest country but it's at lest either 3rd or 4th biggest country in the world for their size. We have lots of people. You can even see almost every race. It's the third most populated country in the world. First is China, then second is India. It's also a popular country too. A lot of people wants to either live or visit USA. We even have all the good new technology. Our country has two types of governor which is Democracy and Republic. Now it's Democratic until every 4-8 years, when the election happens, it could either Change or be the same. It depends what people vote more of, either democracy or republic. Also we have liberty and ...more - JustRandomDude

Economically and militarily the US is unmatched. Although other nations in today's world are beginning to catch up more, the fact is the US still remains the most powerful and will for some time.

America is is an economic and military might on the world stage. No country today can match The United States in a war.

Declining rapidly? Please do not listen to that man. WE have the largest economy, double the size of China, in second place. Our military budget tops everyone, and we provide the most foreign aid out of any country. Please don't criticize us, when you don't realize that you couldn't be anything without us.

India is very popular in world because India have a big army, big rules and laws, most popular leaders, good culture, many languages, good players in cricket

This a country where all religion and all caste people live here

India has a large population with a very large army and large economy. India has nuclear weapons and has huge advances in science and engineering

Probably one of the best countries in the world. It has powerful weapons, amazing army, good people, different languages and it's the one and only golden country in the world. One of the most rapidly developing countries. The food here is awesome and it has a rich culture. Indian people are amazing too. I'm not from India but I do have visited it many times. It's not a country of superstitions, snake charmers and anything its just awesome

They've seen a fall from grace following the Soviet collapse in 1991, and they may not have the best economy, but despite all this there is no denying the amount of power Russia wields (both militarily and politically). As the successor state of the Soviet Union, Russia inherited an very powerful military force and one of the two largest nuclear arsenals in the world, AND has the second highest military spending of all countries (USA is #1). Recently, Russia has been able to exercise their sheer might over their neighbors (notably, Georgia and Ukraine), and have also used their influence to convince countries like Kazakhstan and Belarus over to their side. And on top of all this, Russia is one of the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council, which gives them lots of leverage and political influence on the world stage.

Sure, there are memes about Putin and Russia. And sure, they may not be as powerful as they once were. But despite everything, it seems Russia's reign over ...more

Much stronger than India.

I'm Chinese, so obviously I'd pick China.

Most of your stuff is from this country and if they stopped shipping you probably would be living a completely different lifestyle, so...

China is a formidable but they are not the strongest. Us M1a2 Abrams are superior to Chinese made Type 85. China does not have as many aircraft carriers as the States. America also posses a new weapon the rail gun which could render Chinese ship to ship missiles useless. China may have 10 million troops to the Americans 2 million but the American troops are better trained. The M4 carbine is also better than Chinese standard issues weapons. China may have a good economy but it is very corrupt. China also has one of the most polluted environments in the world.

An end of an empire, but still pretty powerful nowadays.

I'm from America, but honestly, I still think that England is a little more powerful than us. We have the president (don't get me started on the disastrous election), England has the royal family.

This country shook the world; it formed the largest empire ever seen, it took on heavy losses during ww1, world war two it fought alone in the darkest of hours, blitzed nearly every day, lady Britannia was truly crippled. The Jack rose from the ashes and threw itself upon the French shores to free the French and again teach the Germans a lesson. This country has a reputation no other could match. Even today the Brits are teaching the Jerrys a lesson, what will Europe do without its most powerful country, and with rising strengths on the sea we have a new carrier that will even put the Americans to shame of their navy.

The United Kingdom has, even since the end of the Empire in 1997, had considerable "Soft Power" - Economic Power and Diplomatic Power. Its Military is among the strongest due to training and equipment, and perhaps rivalled only by the United States. And now, since it is in the process of leaving the Anti Democratic Bureaucracy of the EU, it has considerably risen in power.

6 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. ...read more.

Germany is very powerful from a military perspective. The Leopard 2 Main Battle tank is the equal of the American M1a2 Abrams or the British challenger. German special forces are also very formidable especially GsG9 the counter terror unit. Germany also has a lot of experience in war. But Germany lacks aircraft carriers, or a sufficient fleet to compete with other navel powers. Germany can not mass produce weapons on the scale that the Americans or Russians can as was seen during WW2. Germany also does not have the best soldiers and while their special forces are well trained I have to say that the SAS and the seals are better. The reason I say this is because the SAS taught the GSG9 everything they knew. And the Seals have better tech more funding and more experience having been created even before the SAS.

By re- unifying in just under 30 Years and building itself to what it is today shows that Germany is resilient and has proven themselves to be such a big weapon in comparison to the size of the nation.

A very ambitious Nation. Very powerful in every aspect. Could possibly the Number 1 Nation in the world one day.

It has the strongest economy in whole Europe.

Normally the most powerful country should be China, but it's still USA because of it's military involvement in the world and it's worldwide influence. France is the European equivalent of USA. Even if everything changes quickly for the moment France must be at least 4th. - lili117

France is in the top five due to its Nukes and force de frappe which can hit anywhere in the world in a short span of time... The shame is that the socialists are ruining the economy...

One of the best, actively fighting against terrorism in Middle East as well in more than 5 African countries (helped by African troops), economically could be better, but they improve especially on new economy next year will be the 1st start-up incubators in the world.

Most involved European country in conflicts. A strong army qualified with high tech and one of the best weapons that France produced itself. And of course an important weapon producer : the most expensive but the best too. - lili117

Japan is a powerful nation. But I must argue that they are not the most powerful. Their Type 90 MBT Is superior to that of Russian design but lacks the additional tech and fire power that the US M1a2 Abrams MBT boasts. Japanese troops are well trained but not as good as the British or Americans. The United States also posses the largest navy not Japan though the Japanese navy is very advanced it is not quite as advanced as the American fleet. The Japanese also don't boast a large land army in comparison with other world powers. The Japanese do not even posses a nuclear weapon. As for economics Japan is very powerful but lacks the Great industry of the states. Japan also lacks many natural resources and are forced to import them from countries like Canada, and the US. All in all I have the up most respect for the Japanese people but I can not say that they are the most powerful nation in the world.

I wonder how they became powerful. Even after the 2 Atom Bombs.

Japan leads the world in innovation and creativity, Japanese have a drive to do better and help their fellow Nihonjin. Their wonderful culture will cause Japan to leave the rest of the world behind. Nippon will rise again!

Because of the Japanese technology weapons, tanks, submarines and many more are made up of powerful technology.

Turkey is one of the world's new industrialised countries. The country has an impressive amount of tanks and is currently 5th most submarines in the world. Although Turkey doesn't have its own nuclear warheads, it is apart of NATO, which is a nuclear sharing organisation. In addition to that, the country has the 13th largest economy in the world and its economy is currently increasing at a fast, unlike some European countries. By 2023 Turkey would have the 10th largest economy in the world and would even be a more sophisticated and strong country. Turkey is also investing a lot of money in its defense budget and its airforce which is the 9th strongest in the world. I must also include that, Turkey will be exporting minerals and oil in 2023, which will make the country very rich and economically sophisticated.

12 Australia 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.

I wish that Australia became number one for being the most powerful country in the world, followed by the Australian soldiers that provide their own vehicles, weapons, etc and create newer weapons as well.

Maybe Australia is powerful, maybe it isn't.

I don't mean to sound rude, but Australia should be below the list.

We may not spend Billions of dollars on our military or have a very big one but the people in Australia are by far the strongest. We live in a 70% deserted nation with someone of the most venomous creatures on the planet. Almost everything here can kill you within an hour. It's common here to find a 10cm wide huntsman hiding somewhere in your house and after a while you get used to dealing with them. What makes a country stronger? Spending billions of dollars on little machines so they can kill innocent people in the Middle East while being controlled by some looser in a military base? Or having a nation full of fearless people who are willing to conquer anything? I think the answer's obvious.

Canada is powerful but peaceful. Canadians are never ones to back down from wars if commissioned by the UN and Canada's military has always had great prowess. We have an impact globally and are recognized as a very stable and economically powerful country. While Canada lack military power and technology right now, we are very capable of mass producing arms and weapons very quickly if needed. The Canadian land is also rich in Uranium, oil and other high in demand resources. Even with our small population, we'd fight until the last person falls dead.

Canada has a great army. While it is small our Leopard 2 Main Battle tanks are the equal of the British Challenger or the American M1a2 Abrams. Our special forces JTF2 are almost as good as the SAS or Us navy seals. And the Canadian C7 assault rifle is an upgraded version of the American m16 only out done by the m4 carbine. While Canada has lowered its fitness requirements for recruits it is not because our military is poor it is because we have an insufficient number of people enlisting

Dude, 09ShamsulBahriel, the only reason Israel has not been bombed is that the USA and Israel are allies, and people are afraid that if they invade Israel is that US would step in and declare war.

You try and ignore and belittle Israel at your peril. Stop harassing Israel. A strong people with the guts to defend their country and their way of living. The only real democracy in the region.

Yo you suck to the person that said USA will fall, look at you and your country, and people Israel is not putting up zombie walls, I bet they would fall first, ( world war z)... And Usa should be number one, Israel not strong at all, agree with me Americans! And first ten are correct!
