Putin is crazy. He wants to take over Ukraine and possibly other countries like Belarus and Latvia, with large Russian populations. Basically, he wants to resurrect the Soviet Union and gain economic control over all of Europe. I wouldn't be surprised if they psychopath tried to conquer the world.

Russia is BIG! I think they can take over land whenever. China is also big, most likely China and Russia will team up, making them top 2 and 3 on the most powerful.

Russia could take over Europe probably, but not all of Asia or North America. South America would be a possibility though.

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

China is makes all of our stuff here and is rapidly making a formidable army. They are slowly and strategically already taking over poorer country through the belt and road initiative. China does atrocious things like keeping over a million people in concentration camps without other countries being able to stop it. It is invading the South China Sea and doing so much more. America needs to start looking at this threat or start learning mandarin.

If anyone's going to take over the world, it's going to be Japan, Germany, Russia or this. China is bigger than Japan and Germany, so China could easily take them out. Russia could prove a challenge, but China will adventualy win with it's massive ground troops. without full, though airplanes are worthless.

4 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

The fact that we're an island means we would sink troop - carrying boats before they got here and we wouldn't be nuked as the winds would blow the fallout straight back at the USA. Also we have an incredible navy and air force and we were the biggest empire.

We have done it before. When we parted with other countries within the empire, we never fully left and still have power within their governments.

As much as I love my country, this would be impossible now. Maybe USA, Russia, China and India, but not us anymore. We've already done it almost anyway.

5 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

What India ain't number 1 on this list? It will be the biggest nuclear power in 2030 (energy), biggest army in next 5 years, it already is one of the emerging global power with countries like Israel, Russia, Japan supporting it in terms of defense.

2050 India will be the strongest and powerful country in the world as it was before in ancient times India was richest and powerful country. The time comes back

I think India can win over all over the countries in the future but I know it will not do because it is a mercyful country...I think India should be the cruelest

6 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

Germany is a great country and will easily take over the world if joined forces wit japan and russia.

Although peacefully democratic, it is an European economic superpower thanks to ww2. It currently heads the EU, all the rage in the 90s.

Well they did try to take over the world 2 times no? Who says why not try it again?

7 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

France has shown how great is it, it's the only one European country to fight in more than 6 African countries against Islamic terrorism and that with great success. We should thank France and French for that. So YES.

They are helping us, African countries of south Sahel and CAR, to fight against Islamic terrorism, and they win. A great country, in spite of those who are only speaking, here and in the real life.

France won a record, which is epic.
Most likely to take over the world with wars won, this is the perfect opportunity unless you want USA to beat you guys..

9 Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. It is the smallest nation on Earth, and is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.

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

Because Canada can just take a few tiny countries puppet states and then just destroy some larger countries then with a large income and army, Canada is the world period, in fact with a good prime minister Canada could take over in just 20 to 30 years. Plus as a nice country even if not so, no one would want to target them.

Canada is one of two countries that have never lost a war. The other country is Australia. If the two teamed up with one or more countries, Canada would definitely kick ass.

If I ruled Canada I would get rid of Justin Bieber, we can send him to space with no oxygen. He can't go in the ocean because JB is so disgusting not even the sharks will eat him.
