42 Nigeria Nigeria

Nigeria is a land rich in all ramifications though ethnicity and religious differences pose as a major challenge. Nonetheless I prefer Nigeria to a whole lot of other countries
The food, friendly neighbours, culture, beautiful ladies and gentlemen, the economy, the military strength, the beautiful streets everything is just great.
I know someone might disagree but is there a country without challenges? Go to Nigeria and you will forever cherish your memories

It worth it while than most of it country

44 Nauru Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific.

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.

45 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

We gave them chance to start the war that is why we had a big war in our country

This is one of the most powerful countries in the World in comparison to its land and people strength. They defeated LTTE which is the World deadliest terrorist organization in the World. Even India failed to do that.

Ukraine has a large enough army to clash with its Russian Neighbor. It also has access to Mil-MI-26 Helicopters, the largest in the world. The Ukraine also has something like the 20th largest army, too bad that when it gained independence from the Soviet Union, it had to give up its ~5000 nukes.

60 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world (size is 9.985 million kmĀ²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, more.

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

It's powerful, but not a big army. I'm NOT HATING. I LOVE Canada! It's so peaceful there

I spent so much time finding Canada in this list. I don't quite understand why it is the 22nd.
Why some nations (not strong ones) could be put on higher places? Web producers, please see what is going on here.
Canada is not the strongest nations. I agree. But it is powerful while peaceful. Other countries eg the us, is not as peaceful as Canada. Canada is a powerful nation but just not many of us realize it.
