The Top Ten
1 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are... read more

Pakistan fought for the US in their own War on Terror, and they are still complaining. Pakistan is one of the only countries, along with our Chinese and Russian brothers, who said "Absolutely Not" to the US.

Was it not Pakistan who hid the most wanted man in the world, Osama Bin Laden? Was it not Pakistan who flushed out terrorism in Balochistan? Was it not Pakistan who triumphed over India in the 1965 War? Forty-nine Pakistani politicians have been killed in our history.

Most brave of all, we are friends with North Korea. Looking at you, world.

2 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the... read more

We are the bravest country because we stand out. We were the first to decide to be different. We fight for what we believe, and we will not be silent.

Yes, US people can be arrogant and idiotic. But we're tough and stand up for what we believe.

We have the United States Marine Corps. Need I say more?

3 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area... read more

Because of the battle in North Korea, they would rather freeze to death but still kept the same position and waited for the enemies to come by. Even their enemies respect them as heroes.

They have unique technologies that make them brave outside.

4 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately... read more

I am from Poland, and I know our history. We are like Spartans, fighting to our last drop of blood. I think that Poland has survived the most pain of wars.

Our bravery and other attributes are reasons why we exist all the time. Adam Mickiewicz wrote in "Dziady part III" that Poland is the Jesus Christ of countries. Our nation is like a phoenix from the ashes. We never die!

Tragic but beautiful history. Never gave up. Imagine what could have been if Poland had a better geographical location without being surrounded by Russia and Germany.

5 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea. Its western border is formed by the Yellow Sea, while its eastern border is defined by the Sea of Japan. South Korea claims... read more
6 Ukraine Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the second-largest European country, covering approximately 600,000 square kilometres (230,000 sq mi), and has a population of around 40 million people. It is bordered by Russia to the east and northeast; by Belarus to the north; by Poland, Slovakia, and... read more

Ukraine is really brave too. Russia killing lots of young to old people in Ukraine doesn't mean Ukraine isn't brave. Ukraine always tries to bring back peace, and I felt really bad for Ukraine since the war between Ukraine and Russia.

I'm from Ukraine, so yes, it is very brave!

Just take this for instance. They are beating Russia as of July 2023.

7 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

Italy covers an area of 301,338 km². With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the third most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares... read more
8 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest... read more

In WWII, when Japanese soldiers are caught, almost none of them surrender.

9 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 by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec,... read more

Leo Major is a great example. He liberated the Dutch city of Zwolle single-handedly by making the Germans think they were being attacked by a much bigger force. He captured 50 of them, and the rest retreated. How is that not bravery? Only one man, imagine a whole country.

Canada fought courageously and humbly in the Second World War.

10 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806... read more
The Contenders
11 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is... read more

WW2. Defended the world almost entirely on their own.

The soldiers and civilians who had to endure that hell are braver than anyone in this or any other generation. Cities were constantly being targeted, and the British morale refused to dwindle.

Soldiers went into combat knowing full well they were probably going to die and were still willing to go and help protect their nation. They never gave up and were able to rise up, spitting in the face of fear.

12 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia,... read more

Yes, I believe that Turkey is one of the bravest nations on Earth. They are the descendants of brave Turkic Tribes. These people resisted the Mongols, the Crusaders, and much more. Jalaladin Khwarzamshah's campaign against the Mongols was one of the most humiliating defeats for the Mongols. When the Mongols reconstructed their army and chased him up to the Indus River, crushing everything including his army, he, without looking back, leaped his horse across the river. Even Genghis Khan himself said, What a brave soul, I have never seen. Turks have always been one of the bravest people.

13 Taiwan Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), is a country in East Asia, at the junction of the East and South China Seas in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, with the People's Republic of China (PRC) to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south. The territories controlled... read more

Hate Taiwan or not, they deserve recognition because they are brave.

14 Honduras Honduras is a country in Central America that became an independent nation on September 15, 1821. Unfortunately, this country has been plagued with extreme poverty and violence. These conditions have forced its citizens to flee, making it unwelcoming and disliked by many.
15 Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Vietnam is brave and mostly fights with China. There are lots of heroes who fight with the Chinese and always win to bring back peace for their own country. I love my country and always will.

A small country defeats the USA! This country deserves to be in the top ten.

16 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad... read more

Gandhi Ji was an astonishing hero. He possessed countless qualities, many of which an ordinary person could not have had. He set several examples for our countries, like the Dandi March and Satyagraha. He fought for something he believed in and never gave up. He fought through all the obstacles that came his way with love and peace.

Leadership, simplicity, and bravery were the three most outstanding qualities in Gandhi Ji. The Gandhi Ji strategy is the combination of truth, sacrifice, non-violence, selfless service, and cooperation.

17 Syria Syria, officially the Syrian Arab Republic, is a Western Asian country located in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Levant. It is a unitary republic that consists of 14 governorates (subdivisions), and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Turkey to the north, Iraq to the east and southeast,... read more

Syrian people are fighting against terrorists. They have lost millions of people and are still fighting against terrorism.

18 Australia Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres (2,941,300 sq mi), Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and... read more

We have the most deadly creatures in the world. Of course, we're the bravest!

19 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Fought against the British for hundreds of years. Also had to deal with what is considered one of the worst famines in the world in 1845, where all the potatoes (which one-third of the country could only afford) were covered in blight.

Come out ye Black and Tans and come fight me like a man.

20 Ethiopia Ethiopia, officially known as the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, is a sovereign state located in the Horn of Africa.

As the Afrocentric scholar Molefe Asante explains, After the victory over Italy in 1896, Ethiopia acquired a special importance in the eyes of Africans as the only surviving African State. After Adowa, Ethiopia became emblematic of African valor and resistance, the bastion of prestige and hope to thousands of Africans who were experiencing the full shock of European conquest and were beginning to search for an answer to the myth of African inferiority.

Ethiopia has never been defeated by any foreign army. Only once, it took a 5-year war with the Italian army, from 1939 to 1944, but we still won and threw them out, thanks to the bravery of its people.

An ancient country, with all its cultures and heritages still intact and unchanged.

21 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to... read more
22 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world by area, covering over 17,125,191 square kilometres (6,612,073 sq mi), and encompassing one-eighth of Earth's inhabitable landmass. Russia extends across... read more
23 Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip (Palestine) and Israel to the northeast,... read more

We've never given up on what belongs to us. When Israel occupied our land in 1967 and killed thousands of Egyptians, six years later, during the Yom Kippur War, the Egyptian army, led by Chief of Staff Saad El Shazly, overran the Bar Lev Line in less than two hours due to the element of surprise and overwhelming firepower.

To deal with the massive earthen ramparts, the Egyptians used water cannons fashioned from hoses attached to dredging pumps in the canal. We crossed the Suez Canal and restored our land!

24 Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, is a country in Southeast Europe. It is situated on the southern tip of the Balkans, and is located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Greece shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, North Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and Turkey... read more

Greece's defeat of the seemingly undefeatable Axis forces inspired the world.

President Franklin Roosevelt said, "When the entire world had lost all hope, the Greek people dared to question the invincibility of the German monster, raising against it the proud spirit of freedom," following the Greeks handing the seemingly invincible Axis Forces their first defeat in WWII. Hitler had previously soundly defeated France and routed the army of Great Britain, two of the world's great powers. Life Magazine and publications around the world featured Greece on their covers. I think that's enough to see the bravest country.

25 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. It shares land borders with Sweden to the northwest, Norway to the north, and Russia to the east, with the Gulf of Bothnia to the west and the Gulf of Finland across Estonia to the south. Finland covers an area of 338,455... read more

Finland is the bravest. No fear of death, and after all, they crushed the superior Russian Red Army in the WWII Winter War. They will fight till the last man for their freedom and country.

Seeing the other countries' reasons for being brave doesn't stand a chance against Finland.

The Finns are always more than happy to fight for their country and their freedom, no matter what. Kicking the Red Army during the Second World War was a big success, even though they lost a bit of their land. But it was a spiritual success and something to boost their morale for the future. Just look at the stats of how many Russians were killed in comparison to the Finns. They have a fighting spirit. It's also a saying in Finland: One Finn against ten Russians.
