Top 10 Most Successful Nationslassidoggy
The Top Ten
Contrary to the top answer, we did win every war. The Vietnam War was not an American war, but instead an American military engagement. We have only fought five wars (six if you count the Continental Congress as America) 1812, Mexican-American, Spanish-American, WW1, and WW2 (the sixth was the revolutionary war). All of those are clear victories except the war of 1812. However, I think that the resulting peace ended in American favor. It reduced the amount of British influence on the North American continent, reduced the number of impressing incidents (the British navy kidnapping American sailors for service in the British navy), and demonstrated that America could hold its own against the strongest nation at the time proving that the revolutionary war was not just a fluke.
Additionally, America is the number one creator of peace in the world at the moment and throughout history. Since WW2, we have prevented WW3 at times in which any other nation would have escalated the ...more
The U.S. did not "win every war" - have you heard of the Vietnam War and I fail to see how a country with over 18 trillion dollars in debt can class as the richest country with the greatest economy. Not to mention be "like" a "liberal, now democratic" nation when they so frequently enforce their position as global leaders, by bombing foreign cities, forcing their personnel and military on their "allies" (who they treat so horridly) while also appointing American dictators on the weaker states they conquer. Yes they may have the strongest military and own most innovations in the world, but this merely highlights their "influence" (brute force) towards other countries - stripping away cultures to promote their Coke, MacDonald's and Apple products; allowing the rest of the world to wither in the face of this super giant, ignoring peace and sovereignty for power and control over the world under a regime that produces no genuine benefits for their citizens or the other people in the world.
Well, I wish I could say the US is the freest, most successful, greatest country in the world, but sadly it just isn't the truth any longer. Though up until twenty years ago, it truly used to be. Thriving economy, freedom abounding, everyone just happy to live in a place free of persecution and bondage and what not. Though many still come to the US today for success, I can't say its as free or as successful as it used to be. But hopefully the upcoming generation, my generation, will take a stand and bring the US back to its former state of glory- full of freedom and liberty and justice for all.

Because lots of things you will find in any clever literature.
Thanks to France.
How the United States, a fake nation can be the most successful?
Just one thing that nobody know France is the 2nd Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the world just close behind the United States of America.
And even French themselves do not know that.
France is much more than we believe in general.
Us helped us to stay a country, but we helped US to become one. And we conquered England and made it as a country (Hastings 1066)V 108 Comments
United kingdom Of Great Britain and northern Ireland always and forever England Scotland Ireland and Wales the four greatest nations on earth. The real McCoy of true freedom and liberty and a place where anyone in the world can come and live and succeed if they work hard enough. And if they don't succeed, well they still have a cushy life on the social, and of course there's the NHS. And there's the people, as the new York times put it, the uk's most successful export which I took as a compliment! Well they were talking about celebrities, no2 on the list is very nice to see, but where's France, can not see it, I thought Japan would have been further up as well, Mmm china and India need to spread the wealth amongst there people who are starving before they can be a proper superpower like USA, they should make a different list to include these countries that treat their vast majority of poor people with utter disregard and keep the wealth in their corrupt governments and spend lavishly ...more
'Little Britain', though geographically small, managed to become a superpower that would directly influence every corner of the world to the extent never seen before. In order to for it compete globally against countries with larger resources and bigger populations, it created a more efficient and superior economic system (Bank of England, Bill of Rights) and elite military (Royal Navy) that subsequently lead to its Empire becoming the largest ever, beating its French, Spanish and Portuguese rivals. British culture is showcased across the world through its excellence in music, media, sport, art, literature...etc. whilst scientifically it has been a leading nation for centuries- its achievements in ingenuity has resulted in many world-changing inventions like the Television, World Wide Web, Newton's Laws, Telephone, Programmable Computer to name a few. It continues today to overshadow larger countries because of its strong economy and diplomatic skill. In fact, Britain is rated as the ...more
The only European nation to have 2 universities in the top 10, and has the second highest scientific output in terms of quantity and quality in the world. The nation has had a profound effect on the modern world, and still continues to do so.
There used to be an awful lot of red on the world map.V 56 Comments
Japan have many business company worldwide... Everybody in this world are using their products... They also have culture likes anime which is well received...
Japanese culture appeals to many outside of it, which I believe is somewhat due to the aesthetics associated with Japanese "kawaii" culture and media. Not only this, but many of the industries housed there have deep and far reaching roots and influences.
All round good balanced life. But the best is safety.
In Japan, most people live peacefully with high-tech life-stye and lower percetage of terrorist attack threats.V 12 Comments
The worst crisis in Norway in the recent years was a butter crisis... Aka a shortage of butter, while the rest of the western world fell down in a economic mess.
Great economics, great quality of life, everyone values human life in Norway.
Norway does things right. Americans wonder why their education is such high quality, but it's because they pay their teachers like doctors and encourage progress and improvement among the individual. Norway's government is responsible and forward thinking, and that keeps on top in my opinion.
Norwegian and heck I'm proudV 6 Comments
Germany has the strongest economy in Europe, without Germany, Europe wouldn't survive.
The amount of resources that a country has does not determine how successful a nation is. What does determine it is how well do they utilize the resources they have to the fullest, and Germany is hands down the best at that. Also, a successful country is self-sufficient and does not depend on other countries. (Japan is a great example their abundant exports and influential culture throughout the rest of the world. ) Back in WW2 Germany had to synthesize their own oil since their location in Europe is not necessarily the best in terms of available resources compared to America, and yet they were still the most superior country in the world without a doubt, and were heavily efficient. Their specialty in mechanical engineering have allowed them to craft amazing machines, and they have invented a lot of creative ideas and patents such as the first automobile, the first four-stroke internal combustion, diesel, and Wankel rotary engines. Not to mention, they were the first to make huge ...more
Germany has a good relationship with many countries, and a bad relationship with few. For the comment on America, what are you talking about great economy? Yes a recession and 28 trillion dollars of debt mostly to a communist country is amazing.
They were successful during the reign of the Holy Roman Empire, they were successful during WW1 and WW2 with the Nazi party, and they are successful now, with a frivolous economy and plentiful resources. - JustAnAccountV 21 Comments
India has a pretty fast growing economy, as you may have guessed by now. They really are climbing up the ladder. The problem they have to deal with is how they distribute the money. Like any other capitalist country, the poor are really poor and the rich are really rich, but in India the poor are REALLY poor and the rich are REALLY rich. Also, they really need to spend more money on infrastructure. A road is tarmac, not slightly less dirt than everywhere else.
India is a fast growing economy in this present world. Even in this present economic crisis india is growing. Even india is a developing country, it can make investments in American company. Just after China, india is considered as fast growing countries of world. In the coming 20 years india will no longer continue as a developing country, but a developed,
The thing about India is it is the fastest growing economy nowadays in the world,it has largest work force, a young country with 60per youths(18-30), it is among the greatest market in the world and a very healthy place to invest,it has also made itself an eminent country in space exploration the other thing about India is it's unity and diversity it is the biggest diversity with people living in peace many world leaders claimed that with such diversity India is not gonna last long but India prooved to be heathy country with stable economy it the major point to note is of has the biggest democracy
Many people doesn't know about actual India. Else this is the best countryV 48 Comments
Switzerland is one of the worlds most prosperous and wealthy country. everybody there is practically rich and they all have individual freedoms. In addition its one of the most hard working countries, unlike other European countries whose people rely off the government for help... *cough* Norway *cough* Finland *cough* Sweden*
How is Swiss not number 1? It's heaven in Earth with delicious chocolate and less pollution.
Switzerland is a small country and yet, it is one of the few success stories in the world
Swiss is...just heaven on earthV 3 Comments
In my opinion, if you have not been to Singapore, you will be missing out on one of the world's better places to be.
One of the most convenient island city/country to live in, utterly resplendent.
Just a tiny island, and starting with next to nothing, to being a fully developed nation within a handful of decades.
An efficient and great government system that shows fairness to its population, regardless of locals or foreigners. Something many countries have not achieved on a full nationwide scale.
If this isn't proof enough, than nothing else matters.
Probably the fastest country ever to go from third world to first world (1965- now) Unlike many other rich countries Singapore didn't have all those natural resources (oil/gas) it was through good governing and sheer hard work to get to where they are now.
Walk along an average Singapore street alone at 3am, and you are likely to go unmolested, regardless of whether you're an 80-year-old man or a 15-year-old schoolgirl.
Not only is this one of the biggest economic giants, but it's one of the safest countries in the world. You hardly ever see police around, not because they're lazy, or can't hire people, but because there's such a small need for them. If that doesn't point out a vastly superior economic country, than even the USA, I don't know what does.V 15 Comments
Communism is good in theory, but thanks to humans being so greedy and arrogant, it will never work. Capitalism only works because it is made to favor the greedy. hope China can become a real communist country. Perhaps the world should be communist. With no corruption. Everyone will be TRULY equal. No corruption. Don't that sound nice?
Why the hell isn't this in the top ten?! China is very, very successful! It's developing very fast and twice as fast as India! The economy is growing very fast and it is becoming a lot more modern. China is awesome. America and Europe are the past. China is the future!
China has the most impressive for of government and has a assertive foreign and defense policy. China is the 2nd fastest growing country.
We used to be one...V 13 Comments
Usually places in top ten regardless of survey along with other Northern European countries. Great and free-of-charge education, freedom of press, least corruption etc.
Finland has better equality than most European countries and has a better quality of life. Finland is full of nature untouched by man. In Finland you can really know the true meaning of freedom
Education, enviroment, quality of living and generally good government
This should be much higher in the list. It has such a great economy and government, and is an extremely developed and friendly country. I love Finland, and I think more people should know about it and how great it is.
Australia is without a doubt the greatest nation in the world today. Yes we may not have the powerful armies or the economic powerhouses or overwhelming international influence, but we have far better, more important and attractive features. In Australia, everyone, whether you're black or white, male or female is treated with the same respect as the next person. Indeed quite a number of my elder family are European immigrants. For years I've known that they chose to move to this country and those reasons are simple; equality, opportunity, peace and democracy. In Australia, everyone has the same rights, governance is fair and just and hinged by the rule of law. Here people enjoy the highest standards of living, with great opportunities for those to start a fresh page in a new life. We have the greatest education in the world and rank high in all international measures of humanity measurements. I could go on, but I simply would ever stop talking. To sum up in Australia we value and ...more
Allowing the individual who resides in Australia to feel as though they are not just a 'number', yet more of a 'individual'. Australia provides excellent public facilities and cares more about how people feel as opposed to getting people used to new ideas.
Being multi-cultural and so diverse in terms of scenery and geographic wise, the Australian standard is seen throughout the entire country. Clean, safe cities, towns with the rule of law.
Australia has a great health system, political system and has been the country least effected by the global financial crisis! And yes it is one of the most multicultural country in the world! Plus it has great whether beaches and food! Not that they have anything to do with it!

Canada is a brilliant country full of excitement, adventure, freedom, and a great landscape, which makes the land unforgettable in its own words. It has a strong economy and it appreciates human rights.
Canada is awesome. Great people, gorgeous women, good food, great policies, beautiful land, intercultural, what more can you ask for?

I've lived in Sweden for 12 years and I found it to be really easy for people to get jobs and good education. I am currently living in Singapore, a country in Asia that is very rich as well, but Sweden has a lot of good high points and we are economically stable to my understanding.
Great country, is high on almost everything good can't think of anything bad about Sweden. I'm moving there soon. Big hug from a Norwegian that will soon be a Swede.
Its functions well and the people are nice. But its like Harry Enfield's character
Great Country. I love this countryV 6 Comments
The world's most fastest growing country. Its potential not only comes from the modern technology but also from one of the deep-routed ethic and culture in East Asia. Fast growing but not coincident.

Despite all its oil revenue and 40% of its other revenue being retained by Westminster, Scotland is a successful country, providing for its citizens' needs much better than its larger neighbour.
We invented everything 🤣
Soviet Union (and all Warsaw Pact countries) was really successful without homeless and unemployed it was one and only Superpower.
Pioneered Space and Nuclear Arms and became the largest country in the world.
Made my favriote tank
Help destroy Nazi Germany's and libersted millions of Jews from the Nazis
It my have room for dictatorship but is was a place of financial happnies and well being
Why is this so low? Guess a lot of people don't really know the geography of the UK.
Some countries on this list have existed hundreds of years, and have established themselves decades if not centuries ago. The UAE was formed in 1971, and has quickly grown to hold the world's largest indoor ski resort, the largest mall, the tallest building, and the list goes on. If this is not success, then you wouldn't know success if it broke your nose.
Advanced Architecture highlights the yellow sands.
Great leaders great vidions where evolution is easily noticed arounded you day by day and only a fact (around 80% of the world cranes are located in the UAE) this shows the evolution of this amazing county
The greatest nation in the world (in the history of wars). They were managing the world with justice. They were killing who did injustice something they were killing he/she. (Even the turks)
Most successful Muslim country in the world
At least, much better than some of these.

Indonesia also has an unjust, corrupt and undemocratic system of government. Ordinary people are murdered on the lowest of crimes, standard of living is shocking, human rights are constantly violated, protective and security measures are just horrendous and every tourist who ever visits seems to die a "tragic death" either from surfing at those "great beaches", drinking or eating at Indonesian restaurants or from being imprisoned or executed based on ridiculous criminal accusations.
Indonesia is the best, I am from us, but I think indonesia has:
- beautiful places
- cheap prices
- nice people
- great weather
- great lifestyle
- Indonesian language is easy to learn because it is a "lingua franca" language
I Love Indonesia because its economy getting better year by year. But they have serious problem with corrupt government and work distribution.
Why indonesia? Because we live peace.V 5 Comments
Egypt is the "mother of the world". It holds one of the top seven wonders of the world and is extremely amazing.
Where mankind began. First to lead in every elements.

Egypt is one of the most amazing countries in this world! about its people.. and places and way more... even though you might not be from there, it just feels like home. there are a lot of places you can visit there asit has the Nile ( the tallest river in the world) and also the pyramids (one of the seven wonders of the world) and it has history with france, greece, romania, britian turkey and other countires. When you ask anyone about Egypt, theyll tell you it's the mother of the world.❤

How to describe new Zealand, it is liveable, smart and educated, friendly, happy, beautiful, relaxed, enjoy life, developed, liveable cities, governed fantastically, extremely peaceful and just fantastic. It has evolved it own style and culture unlike any other, as well has having an eco attitude, south island has the cleanest air and it is extremely rich compared to its isolation, laid back atmosphere and size. You know your safe and loved in new Zealand and can have the best lifestyle and work balance. Also Auckland is going through a huge development plan right now and is on the tracks to being the most liveable city. Also a great shout- out to Christchurch, although they suffered a huge earthquake they didn't wallow in there own self pity they redesigned themselves, improvised and just got back to its feet, now that's truly fantastic. Also New Plymouth, Napier, Wellington, Nelson, Queenstown (THE ADVENTURE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD! ) and Auckland are fantastic towns.
Stunning scenery, happy lifestyle, good education, high development, positive thinking, determined development and diverse culture.

Considering everything, South Africa has achieved the most in the shortest amount of time. And they're tougher than all these other weaklings.
Slow growth, poor education, labour unrest in mining, unemployment, inequality, a rich black elite, and a huge crime wave.
Is better than Kazakhstan
From opressed tribes to politically free.
Invented the company, pioneered world trade, International Law, the telescope, microscope, van gogh, rembrandt, founded New York City, with a free and diverse society and culture. Of course there are some problems, but the country overall has been a huge influence on the modern world. The English even employed Dutch engineers to build parts of windsor, and the Netherlands remains the 3rd largest investor in the American economy, and is in the top largest investors in places like Brazil and China. It lays low on the scene, but the dutch economy and business have a larger say than most people know.
Healthiest diet of Europe, lowest obesity rate, highly efficient use of the territory enabling 17 million people to still live in green, liberal - a country with a personality.
Dutch people should burn because no one likes them and all of their lives are worthless. Die
From far back history still succesfull. Always in top 10 on social, economical, educational list. Dutch companies are pioneers in general, and leading innovators in all kinds of business.V 2 Comments
A shining light in a region of darkness. Despite many hardships, and a unique situation, Israel continues to show the world that they are world leaders in practically everything. On a per capita basis, no country even comes close. Jealousy is the sincerest form of flattery, and this is why the Arab/Muslim countries have such a problem with Israel. Israel is the diamond in the rough, and believe me, the other countries in the Middle East are disgusting dumps with disgusting people. Am Israel chai!
A small country that created so many things of today really they invented motorola and revolutionized science.

Don't even get me started on the food, we have the best restaurant in the world up in the north. We also invented the sobremesa, which is a period of time after each lunch in which us spaniards get together and appreciate the food we have just taken and each other. This can take 10 minutes in a week day or up to the next meal in the weekends. We obviously also have the best parties in the world, culture and sportsmen and women (football, tennis, formula 1, basketball, cycling, volleyball, handball, motorbikes, syncronized swimming... the list really does go on).

Iran has strong culture, kind, smart and hard working people. Persian foods, sweets and snacks are the most delicious food in the world, everyone love them. They have many resources.
