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
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.
No doubt America is powerful are military budget is 48% of the world that's more than Europe or China and Russia combined, this comes with are high economic power too, most powerful city in the world is located here, 315 million people live here

Russia should be #2. Russia has the second most powerful military and only about 300 nukes away from having more than US.
Russia has a total nuclear arsenal of around 8,500 while the USA has around 7,500. Russia still has around double the amount of tanks that the USA has. The new radar jamming system on their planes makes it so it takes around 4-5 missiles to even hit the plane effectively. Russian S-400 system can knock out pretty much anything any other country throws at them, for example, in Serbia, the Serbs used old Russian equipment but still downed a few F-16s plus a stealth fighter, imagine nowadays against these NEW Russian weapon systems! The Russian Armata tanks and armored vehicles are like playing world of tanks the video games, just point and shoot, no calculations at all, and the recent Russian cruise missile launch on ISIS shows that they can effectively combat an overseas threat from a large distance (The Caspian Sea).
Russia have a high rank in army and defense. New Technics in defense also a speciality of Russia. Also they are top in Introducing new inventions. They are top in IT. The first man to space is from Russia.

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.
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 seen as a "great" country because of its economy and military. While it's size of its military could be seen as lethal, they still don't have the same sorts of technology and training that the USA or even Russia has. As for its economy, it's disgusting. Their workforce is thrown into factories with horrible conditions to mass produce American product for a highly low pay. If you think China is "so great" or "the most powerful" please think again. -ryhaggs - Ryhaggs

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.
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.
Richest country in the world only 100 years ago
It depends on what you mean by powerful. Do you mean the most amount people or money? If so, it is going to be the USA or Russia. However, I voted UK because the UK has the best special forces-SAS+other specialist units for various tasks e.g. SBS (Special Boat Service), Royal marines etc. and fact that they have trained most of their allies armies/special forces. Then add in the highly advanced justice systems that Russia, China and USA do not have (based on human rights abuse, racial inequality and similar subjects). Then add in leaving the European union (allowing the UK to make there own rules among other benefits) and overseas territories that are under British rule e.g. Falkland islands, Caribbean etc. The rise of the pound against the Dollar and Euro and The biggest factor in there favor the fact that they are responsible for over 100 years conquering most of the globe (something like 70%) of all countries in the world and introduced trade, democracy etc. to most countries they ...moreV 15 Comments
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...
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

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.

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!
Japan is the most powerful nation.V 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
According to the Credit Suisse world's top military strenght report (2015), Italian military power is placed 7th in the world (tied with South Korea) and 2nd in Europe, only preceded by France.
Italy is followed by Uk (9th in the world and 3rd in Europe). Germany is only 18th in the world and 5th in Europe, behind Poland.
See also "List of countries by Military Strength Index" on Wikipedia.
Great. This list has England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. What the heck?
England is in Great Britain so how can Great Britain be 9th and England 8th? I think England (Great Britain) should be 5th.

Turkey is one of the most powerful countries that I have ever seen, me as an asian I had learnt everything about Turkey from what had happen in the history to now and I was really shocked, Turkish people are really really strong and they love their Beautifull country really much (sorry for my bad english )
Turkey is a unique country with rich historical heritage and magnificent culture in the centre of the world.

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...

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
Has developed greatly in the past 3-4 decades

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
While Australia is powerful just remember Canada saved Britain well before they Americans entered the fray. Yes the Australian army is professional it lacks the combat experience of other nations such as the USA. Australia's industry is also not designed to sustain long periods of conflict it would be in a sense incapable of matching other major powers in terms of production
Yes Australia's troops are professional and are highly motivated. They held the Japanese back single handily until the Americans were able to push them back. But Australia does not have the military budget of the United States (601 billion dollars) nor does it have the numbers China has ten million the United States has 2 million. US M1a2 Abrams, and M2a3 Bradly assault vehicles are also much better than the Australian bushmaster 4 by 4. American troops also have more experience having fought: Canada, Brittan, Germany, Japan, North Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan just to list a few.

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.
If Brazil wasnt corrupt, it would be one of the richest countries in the world
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!

Lost 3 out of 4 wars, 1 stalemate. Lost half its territory while fighting with India. Only nation after North Korea to play the nuclear weapon card.
Large army, defeated in 3 times out of 4 wars even though India had at least 5-10 times larger army. It's the only Muslim country with declared nukes, defeated the superpower Russia with its proxy war in Afghanistan fought by the afghan mujahideen. America cannot do anything about the Pakistanis double crossing them when it comes to Afghanistan. What we need to realise is Pakistan is not going to fully support us with our war in Afghanistan as Afghanistan is a; Muslim country, neighbour (with a large border), similar cultures, food and dress, and there are tribes that live on both sides of the border. I hope Pakistan remove the terrorists from their land as USA is not capable to fight Muslim guerillas
Pakistan have good army Pakistan have good import and export Pakistan has latest weapon and Pakistan played good cricket than India
