It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such more.

As opposed to a few other Muslim countries (not trying to imply anything), has slightly more freedom

It has a small army but it has powerful allies which are Chaina and the members of the 5 power defense agreements wich are the UK, Singapore, Australia and New Zeland which in turn these 5 alliances have powerful allies such as Russia, the EU, Canada and even the US this because Malaysia is such a peaceful nation, it is one of the most advance nation in biotechnology but Malaysia is the most advance in palm oil technology so their allies will have good products from the nation

25 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

The dark horse in terms of seeing it as a nation that has nothing to lose. It will rise in power once again and it will ever just keep getting better.

Spain was once a Great Empire-almost as big as England- and it is still important and powerful.

Spanish is the second most-spoken language in the world.

Spain is more powerful than other countries in the top of the list
