Most Powerful Countries In the Worlddecorulez97
The Top Ten
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
Most powerful country economically and militarized.
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.
I'm not American but American soldiers are actually very powerful.V 157 Comments

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
Ever since the Soviet Union collapsed, the population was declining, so yay
This should be number one.
Russia should be #2. Russia has the second most powerful military and only about 300 nukes away from having more than US.V 49 Comments

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.V 19 Comments
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.
How is India ahead of Germany India is so much more curropt and has a much smaller economyV 13 Comments
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.
France is economically powerful, but their not militarily powerful because they always surrender.V 11 Comments
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 has an interesting culture and is very powerful
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!V 15 Comments
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. The government of Turkey will be investing the exportation money into many services in the country, such as education, infrastructure, healthcare and military. This is why ...more

I know everyone of you hate to admit it... But North Korea is gaining strength. They have nuclear warheads... And USA can't fire a nuke as it may affect South Korea too. North Korea is pretty strong so far, and have weapons that even Trump don't have...
I think there this weak. Because they. Nearly lost the Korean War.
Why is france higher than this. North korea's power made france surrenderV 14 Comments
Italy is among the top five contributors to the NATO budget, along with the US, UK, Germany and France. These five countries make up the so-called "Quint Group", a very important forum within NATO.
What terrorism do you refer to? Maybe that one artfully created by the government of your Country... Assuming that you are an American citizen, of course. An American style terrorism, as well as 9/11... Anyway, Italy autonomously decides its foreign and military policy. Exactly like any other Western democracy. Exactly as France and Germany did concerning a military intervention in Iraq in 2003. On the contrary, Italy supported USA in that wicked choice, paying with a large number of soldiers killed in an absurd, senseless war.
Very very very very very very good

Thanks to our new president,soon,we will be at 1st.
Brazil has been going up economically and in power, it is the first Southern American county to host the Summer Olympics. It is the most powerful, and biggest nation in South America, and has had steady economic growth.
After 5 years sinking we still the most powerful in the entire latin america (Mexico, Colombia, Argentina,...)
Brazil is a superpower and although its up and downs (mostly beacause of corruption), it�'s the most powerful country of Latin America.V 1 Comment

After Korean War, South Korea, everything was destroyed by the war. But they made 'Miracle of Han River'. Therefor I think that Korea has possibilities to grow-up of one of the most powerful nation in the world.
They have their own unique culture and also they recur their poor economy

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.
Whilst Australia has a very small army in contrast to countries such as China and America it is not to say that Australia's military capability are equally small in contrast. Australia has one of the most modern and well trained armies in the world, spending approximately 25 Billion ( 1.9% GDP ) a year to maintain 58,000 active personnel ( 22,000 standby ) and equipment. In addition to this modern and well funded military Australian troops are entirely self admitted meaning that they've not been drafted into the defense force against their will. This has a variety of benefits, firstly being willingness to participate, as they're there by their will they're much more likely to participate and fight to their full potential, this is in contrast to someone in the military against their will who will not likely fight or participate in a similar matter. Secondly, Australia has one of the best trained militarizes in the world, this can be traced back to the the Vietnam war where Australian ...more
Maybe Australia is powerful, maybe it isn't.
I don't mean to sound rude, but Australia should be below the list.V 20 Comments
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.
Far from it actually. - lannypetersong
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
It's powerful, but not a big army. I'm NOT HATING. I LOVE Canada! It's so peaceful thereV 15 Comments
Israel is more powerful militarily, technologically and politically than at least half the countries ranked higher than it. Every important country and all unbiased analysts know this.
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. Studio learn your facts before you make a stupid statement like that. Also if the USA did fall first in line to claim or power would be UK or South Korea.
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!V 18 Comments

It has the most oil
Here saudi arabia is at 23th rank(thank to thetoptens.com to be reliable) but arabia paid lots of money to pull their rank to 9th in the other internet sites(search most powerful countries ). Also uae is at 10 th rank:).Turkey or Iran or Pakistan even Iraq can occupy arabia and uae in a couple hours. and if it had been occured,arabia's money would not have saved their country in the real life. they are strong where just money can speak. purchasing 150 billion$ gun from usa but users of those guns are Pakistani or Indian employees:) %40 of arabia's army don't know to speak arabic:) obey Quran,follow The Last Prophet Muhammed and be a real muslim country and stop feeding terrorism and killing people(journalist kashikci) who oppose arabia

Afghanistan's sovereignty has been held during the Anglo Afghan Wars, the 1980s Soviet war, and the 2001 present war by the country's many and diverse people.

1. Nauru's economy is HUGE. And not just in proportion to its size, it's just enormous. I mean - look at its GDP: 153 MILLION $. No one, and I mean no one, apart from only like 1800 people, has their net worth seven times the size of Nauru's economy.
2. Size and influence. Nauru's not just huge economically. The country's total land area is over 20 square kilometers! That's 0,15% of Tokyo's, the world's largest city's land area. The country's location is so good that Australia has begged for a defense alliance with Nauru. Basically every country in the Pacific has bowed down to the great superpower of Nauru, either begging for an alliance or money.
Nauru's population is also huge. It's nearly 10 000 people, meaning that this GIANT'S population is nearly 10 times the size of the Vatican's.
