Top 10 Most High Tech Countries

The Top Ten
1 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.

Japan has a huge capital city called Tokyo, other cities in Japan include Fukuoka, Hiroshima, Osaka, Nagoya and Sendai. It's close to South Korea, which is on the North West of it. It has a large population of 126.86 million people (Statistics Bureau of Japan. Retrieved April 27, 2016). ...read more.

Aww, thanks for thinking we have a good technology. But this can unfortunatly be an disadvantages. Although the technology helps us Japanese people, but also confuses us. It is so complicated that we can't even use a machine or some kind of robot because it is so complicated. For example, in some toys with tiny machines with them takes ages to charge and we can't play with it for a long time before- you guessed it, having to charge it again. Also, sometimes we have to open 2 zippers for extra security. (It is very rare though) But still, why? Why Japan?

Japan, as an Asian country (not to be racist) is superior to america (technologically) hands down. America may be the world power but they will never out wit or out last the wittiest of the mortal races. The Japanese are one of the most disregarded genius races on earth. These Asians precede their reputation as smarts and wits. I personally am a nationalist and will defend the claim that america is the best country to the depths of oblivion, but I cannot overlook that one day Japan will take its revenge against america and claim right to the title "Most powerful country in the world." For heaven's sake let us hope that the Japanese will stay peaceful and benevolent enough to prevent another war from ever again bringing Armageddon back to the world. God bless us all, God bless America, God bless the entire world and all those who dwell in its wake.

Japan is the most technologically advanced nation in Asia and maybe the whole world.
Japan is developing super advanced gadgets like dimensional elevator, this elevator can transport anyone to different floors of a tower in just a second. Everything will be hologram and like an ultimate transporter.

And in weapons, Japan is developing gundam-like units that can fire lasers and can float in air. Some rumors said that Japan is developing a big barrier that can defend whole japan from nuclear bombs, and tsunamis.

SO OVERALL JAPAN IS THE SUPERIOR OF TECHNOLOGY.

Products produced by this country are reliable and technically advanced. However they do not fully make the most of their strengths because of the language barriers together with its geographical location.
The communication between other advanced countries is poor, and hence this country is always heading toward somewhere else even though their technologies are so great.

This fact makes Japan more unique, foreigner can appreciate their great technology when he/she comes to Japan and see what one has never seen before.

Except for that weakness, their technological ability can be ranked number 1 in the 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 British Empire in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence. They won their independence in 1783 with the Treaty of Paris. Its capital, Washington D.C. (District of Columbia) is defined by imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings including the iconic ones that house the federal government's 3 branches: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. Though it has no official language, English and Spanish are taught in schools. It is located in North America, between its neighbors Canada and Mexico. According to "US News", the United States has been deemed 4th best country, beating Sweden but beaten by the United Kingdom (its former owner). Its population as of February 21st, 2017 is 325,636,742 ...read more.

Well I'm an American and this is a pretty interesting list. The reason people don't see America as technologically advanced like South Korea and Japan is that it's weaker in communications tech. I mean, America is a huge nation so it is technologically advanced differently than South Korea and Japan.

As a side note, East Asia is wowing the world with its technological advancements, but they love to improve on what currently exists while the Western world loves to think of new ideas. Therefore, the west is still pretty technologically advanced compared to Asia. After all, if you look at East Asia, only some nations are developed while some are developing.

Every nation has its own tech strengths, even Africa. I mean, they have mining so they're good at that!

If anything, we should wow at the European countries because historically, they literally had to start with no resources up there in that northern continent. Asia and Africa had a lot of riches.

Due to stereotypes, we missed the first place to Japan. EVERYTHING Japan has made, we have already made first. Gundam-like units? What. We already have aircraft far more advanced. And much of that anime based technology is mainly due to obsession and fandom. We have invented FAR more than Japan has. Japan hasn't even set foot on the moon yet, you know something that was already done by us more than 50 years ago. The reason we're considered so primitive is because of stereotypes of the South. But in reality, were the most innovative country in the world. Don't let stereotypes fool you.

The United States is the front runner in all experimentation whether it be in military break through a or I'm the field of medecine. The American government is close to 40 years ahead of where the world actually thinks they are; the United States is always many steps ahead of the competition because they have to be due to threats from all across the world. If people think the us government is only watching the homeland you are wrong because they are watching the world in a global network of servailence. Not to mention the United States middle defense programs that have created a shield around the United States and its allies. Also the United States has the largest private sector that is free to make progress in the technological word on their own which makes technological breakthroughs more common.

I have nothing to say but the fact that the US is the most superior country of all time no one can beat us. All the countries are to scared to fight us so we have to join other peoples wars just to get some action. No one has ever beat us in a war, and no one ever will. People can say oh China would decimate us, Russia would send us crying to our mommy's. But guess what I don't see them doing anything now do I. Lastly one unit of our military could do more damage then China, or Russia's whole population. Long live America.

3 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 to be the sole legitimate government of the entire peninsula and adjacent islands. It has a population of 51.75 million, of which roughly half live in the Seoul Capital Area, the fifth largest metropolis in the world. Other major cities include Incheon, Busan, and Daegu. ...read more.

South Korea came in second place after Japan on the list of highest technology countries in the world. South Korea is rated one of the top best highest technology countries on the planet due to making advanced robots, cars, trains, computers, boats, air conditioners, televisions, helicopters and planes. South Korea is one of the world's best and the highest technology ranking countries. South Korea is also voted on the list of countries with the fastest internet speed in the world and South Korea is near Japan in highest technologies!

I think South Korea is a very strong tech country in the world.
I've been there couple times for my business trips, it is wonderful how everything is connected with technology.
With its amazing transportation card; I could easily ride subway, bus, and taxi. Also, widespread public wifi impressed me, it's seriously everywhere.
Generally, people use Samsung pay (system paying with Samsung phones without a card ; earlier than Apple pay system) with their phones and Korean citizens are much likely exposed to technology in their daily life as like Japan, it's closest neighboring country.
I think it is that Korea has a lot more potential to grow, however, Japan's early dominance in Asian culture and economy with technology has been exposed and advertised way faster to the world since since Korean War, which caused Korea, in same Asia, the perception of less influencial in technology known to the public.

Korea dominates the world in technology. Look around and you will notice numerous Korean technologies even in the US. Ex: Samsung, LG, Hyundai, and etc. Companies like Apple can't compete with Samsung in any industry. Apple's got the basic (convenience) while on the other hand, Samsung has brains (technical aspects) which is more appealing to both younger and older generations. In addition, Korea has the fastest, free internet in this world. South Korea's internet speed is 20x (times) faster than that of America.

Samsung alone already bests all the Japanese tech companies combined. Hyundai, Kia, etc are flourishing, despite their recently late history of a start. South Korea's military technology is far superior to Japan, mainly because South Korea is still technically at war with North Korea. Samsung is fighting Apple, one of the biggest tech giants out there. In fact, 92% of all phones sold goes to Samsung and Apple. The 6% includes LG, HTC, etc, and NO Japanese companies. Checkmate.

4 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.

Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone - the 'DDR', East Germany, separate with a wall through the middle of Berlin, until 1990 when the country was reunited. ...read more.

German technology, even though being parted after the second world war, is still top notch in the world. German engineers and scientists won the space race for the US. They developed the first nuclear missile (it's a horrible weapon but still an impressive piece of technology), the first car engine, jet engine, fully programmable computer...
The only tech industry which Germany doesn't either lead or at least stay at the top of is IT. In the cold war and it's separated status (BRD-DDR) Germany seems to have missed out on that sector a bit.
But giant Top Tech Companies like Siemens, Volkswagen, BMW, Audi, Daimler, BASF, Bosch, Continental are leading in the fields of electronics, cars, robotics/automation, etc.

Excuse me?! Why is Germany even on number 5?! Should have put it number 3 at least... Let me remind you, people like Albert Einstein, the German scientists and engineers, was considered to be one of the most intellectual and greatest scientists the history knew. Finding India and the U.S topping Germany was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Germans can be rude but brilliantly intellectual and advanced in thinking...

Germany should be number one if you think about it. The first computer, the first, car, the first rocket and even the first jet engine. They are still nowadays the most high tech in the world. 80% of Japans and usa's high tech things are first developed and designed in Germany.

How is India 3th please tell my, Gernany is way better in technology then India, Germany should be 3th or 2nd after Japan and/or South Korea I don't understand this. Germany is popular by high tech, India isn't. Germany has very popular trains that use high tech example ICE (Inter-City express) and popular brands (Grundig, Siemens, T-mobile) and Germans use high tech in there cars.

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. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

India was the superpower of the ancient world in terms of economy , military , culture and technology . Throughout history India's share of world GDP was 32.8 %. But 11th century onwards during the Turkic , Persian ,and Mughal invasions our economy dropped for 32.8 to 28 and during the British colonisation it further dropped drastically from 28 to 2 %. But it is slowly and steadily improving . Today majority of the high tech jobs in USA and Europe are done by Indians . Indian Americans have the highest median salary per capita in USA .

British destroyed everything in India while ruling for 200 years and stole all the sources, ideas of intelligent Indian and showed this world that all those are British inventions. India is land of most intelligent people, look around you guys most of the doctors, engineers, scientists, CEO, founders and owner are originally from India. Even though many people in this world are resists towards them specially British. If India was not colonised by British Indian would have been way ahead from entire world.

Wow. India truly is one of the most advanced countries in the world. Almost everything the world has and needs comes from India. Did you know, India were the creators of music, cell phones and the number zero? Including many more famous things that the world wouldn't run without even now. But what makes India look so "poor"? The population. India is a beautiful, hard working nation that the world can't see, from the clear blue waters, that are even more amazing than Australia's, to the ancient buildings, India is a country you can't describe with only one word.

"India's beauty can't be described by being read or heard. It has to be seen. Once seen, then there's no coming back."
- Queen Elizabeth

"India is amazing. The people, the culture, the religion, everything. It can't be described just like that."
- Albert Einstein

India is one among the few nations that have advanced space technology. Having sent missions on moon and mars, India has developed indigenous cryogenic technology. Indigenous technologies have been used to develop nuclear usages, Ballistic missiles, Anti Ballistic Missile defense, 4.5 gen fighter air craft etc. Apart from this India's contribution in software technology is well known.

6 United Kingdom England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

England can trace its history as far back as the 10th century, but modern England didn't start till the Norman Invasion of 1066. In 1535, England annexed Wales and in 1603 shared a Monarch with Scotland, which eventually led to the Unification of the two into 'Great Britain', in 1801 Ireland was incorporated forming the 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland', in 1922, 6 counties stayed in the UK while the rest of Ireland declared Independence.

England is located on the Island of Great Britain, northwest of continental Europe. It is bordered by Scotland to the North, Wales to the West, the North Sea to the East, the Irish Sea to the North West and the English Channel to the South.

It shares its capital with the UK and it's London. Other Major Cities include, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds and Newcastle. ...read more.

The British are responsible for 54% of the worlds most important inventions. Pretty much everything we take for granted and use in every day life originates from Britain (and Italy). Television, Computers, Telephone, Radio, Fridges, Flush toilets, Lawn Mowers, Light bulbs, Light switch, Steam Engine, Jet Engine, The Underground, Syringes, Needles, Cat's eyes in the road, Discovery of DNA, MRI Machine, Fire extinguisher, Submarine, Miltary Tank, Machine Gun, Hovercraft, Scuba Diving Gear, Cork Screw, World Wide Web, Lava Lamp, Concorde, Police Force, Sherrif, Special Forces. Most of the worlds sports and much much more.

The UK publishes more scientific papers per person than any other nation, plus the British have invented most things that have truly changed the world. Though Britain may not have as much expendable income as other nations, it is home to the many inventors, scientists, and engineers. It is true that the UK does not manufacture as much as it used to, but it still designs an astronomical quantity of devices that have shaped the world. Great Britain is the world leader in engineering, nuclear and quantum physics, medicine, and bio engineering and genetics, just to name a few.

Still the third best producer of scientific papers. The UK produces the second most-cited scientific papers in the world - the first, if you note the huge population gap between the UK and the USA.

England made many of the famous scientists that lead to the Scientific Revolution, and Industrial, if you want that to count.

England is very high tech, on par with the USA at consumer level at the very least.

We started the World Wide Web (Not the internet, that is different. )

We work with the US to create new and interesting technologies.

Many inventors and coders come out of here.

Our Universities (such as Cambridge and Oxford) develop ground breaking technologies and innovations.

7 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 of approximately 9.6 million square kilometers (3,700,000 sq mi), it is the world's third or fourth largest country. The country consists of 23 provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities, and two Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macau). The national capital is Beijing, and the most populous city and financial center is Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only official language and major languages. Cantonese is a common dialect used in Hong Kong and Macau (but the people there don't think it is a dialect). Ancient China invented paper, silk, gunpowder, and many things we rely on today.

Not the king of technology. But no nation is. Each nation is high tech in their own way, Japan is good at making electronics and games, Germany is good with cars, USA is good with weapons, and China has made some of the most important devices, even though some have been around for a while, like the compass and gunpowder. All nations are equal in there own way, so nothing's best or worst. It's all good bro!

6?! What!? China is the king of technology! They invented lots of things in olden days such as the compass and gunpowder. And they're still advanced today, going strong on making cars, video games and more! China should be at least 3! They own!

China has really surprised the world with the major developments its made. I would say that without a doubt China will be the worlds most developed country in the next 10-20 years.

We should have kept our gunpowder to ourselves, so then we would be much more advanced than anyone else. May have been the only army that carried guns. Hate whoever exported our precious gunpowder to the Europeans.

8 Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign island country and city-state in maritime Southeast Asia. It lies about one degree of latitude (137 kilometres or 85 miles) north of the equator, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, bordering the Strait of Malacca to the west, the Singapore Strait to the south, the South China Sea to the east and the Straits of Johor to the north. The country's territory is composed of one main island, 63 satellite islands and islets, and one outlying islet, the combined area of which has increased by 25% since the country's independence as a result of extensive land reclamation projects. It has the third highest population density in the world. With a multicultural population and recognising the need to respect cultural identities of the major ethnic groups within the nation, Singapore has four official languages; English, Malay, Mandarin, and Tamil. English is the lingua franca and numerous public services are available only in ...read more.

Singapore is not the king of technology, but it is one of the most advanced. It just has so many achievements that if I stated them all my computer would run out of battery before I could. The comment under mine states the most well-known facts about it. The only reason why it does not break the top ten is because it does not have its own resources and instead gets them from powerhouses like China.

What? Russia, Turkey, Iran, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Pakistan, the Philippines are higher than Singapore? People did you really read the name of this list?

Singapore is a garden city and yet a top advanced militarized country only next to Israel.

Singapore is a very modern country with a lot of fancy technologies!

9 Israel Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia. It is situated on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea, and shares borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan to the east, and Egypt to the southwest; it is also bordered by the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to the east and west, respectively. Tel Aviv is the economic and technological center of the country, while its seat of government is in its proclaimed capital of Jerusalem, although Israeli sovereignty over East Jerusalem is unrecognized internationally.

Israel's private industry is very successful. Israel develops one of the most hi-tech military equipment all over the world. Take the legendary UZI for example. Israel is also developing agricultural miracles such as a product that maximizes the crop's growth with half of the conventional system. Thirdly, Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita. Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, with 145 per 10, 000, as opposed to 85 in the U.S., over 70 in Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work force employed in technical professions. Israel places first in this category as well.

Israel has developed Intel chips, they have invented the flash drive, they have developed a massive amount of treatments to an incalculable number of diseases and conditions (Cancer, AIDS, etc.). They developed a large number of software, such as firewall and defense software and have contributed to the creation of many operating systems. They have developed the algorithm of sending emails. The technology of mobile phones was developed in Israel. Without Israel, the consumer lifestyle that many people enjoy that includes advanced technology and healthcare would not exist.

" Israel is ranked fifth Nation I the Start-Up industry considering the fact that there are only around 7.1 million people in the country. How is it that Israel a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources! Produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK? "

On a scale of 1 to 10 Israel deserves a 10, It is incredible that a country with so few people and with so many countries bearing down upon her can do so well, bless Israel, bless its' people, bless the efforts that they put into their land and their works. Would have to number Israel as Number 1 for achievement.

10 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 the Atlantic Ocean. France spans 675,000 km2 (251,000 mi2) and has a total population of 67 million (data from 2017).

Due to its numerous Overseas departments and territories scattered on all oceans of the planet, France possesses the largest EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) in the world, covering 11,691,000 km2 (4,514,000 mi2) just before the EEZ of the United States as the second largest (11,351,000 km2 / 4,382,000 mi2).

It is a unitary semi-presidential republic with the capital in Paris, the country's largest city and main cultural and commercial centre. Other major urban centres include Lyon, Marseille, Lille, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Nice, Nantes, Strasbourg, Montpellier. ...read more.

France was the second represented country, just after the USA, at the last CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016 at Las Vegas. French startups represented more than 30% of Eureka park.

France is arguably the most promising country when it comes to hardware startups.

France is lucky enough to have some of the best engineering schools in the world. Students don't just study computer sciences in these schools. They study electronics, mechanics and other low-level courses. It's a better training if you plan on working for hardware companies.

Actually France is better that what we think about it, for instance France is Europe's most innovative nation and the third in the world behind United States and Japan as usual, 4th is Germany and 5th South Korea. Sometimes we don't expect such figures, France does not like to spread good figures, they have this 'to keep a low profile'.

Who knows that Smart Card has been invented in 1974 by a French inventor, Roland Moreno (11 June 1945 - 29 April 2012) engineer, humorist and author.
His invention has 'Touched almost everyone on the planet' in the words of The Guardian and is now used in identity cards, drivers licenses, passports, oyster cards and SIM cards.
France is ranked 3rd in term of inventions and discoveries.

France is really the future: "le plus gros incubateur de start-up au monde" = The biggest incubator of startups in the world" in 2016 will be more than 1000 startups.

Currently, in Paris it's more than 3000 startups for 38 incubators.

This Country is the most diversified we have ever seen, it's like USA in small.
Lots of different landscapes, architectures, fabulous gastronomy etc... Etc...

We Love France.

11 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 eleven time zones and borders sixteen sovereign nations, the most of any country in the world. It is the ninth-most populous country and the most populous country in Europe, with a population of 145.5 million. The country's capital and largest city is Moscow, the largest city entirely within Europe. Saint Petersburg is Russia's cultural centre and second-largest city. Other major urban areas include Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Kazan.

It seems that this list was made by a kid whose definition of high-tech is Ipad, Ipod and iPhone. No, it's also spacecraft and space industry, Nuclear energy, aircraft and watercraft building. Even USA buys Russian rocket engines for NASA. Russian company "Rosatom" builds NPPs all over the planet Earth and of course the legendary weapons! Russian Military-Industrial complex knows how to make powerful, reliable and not overpriced weapons.

Can't forget Russia is the one who invented Space exploration! And to this day is the #1 in Space travel and technology. That alone should put it in the top 3!

Don't be fooled, Russians have the potential of overthrowing Japan and America in terms of being the lead economic powerhouse.

LOL: Russia is below Ghana on this list.
Russia's military and nuclear tech are amongst the strongest in the world. Also the country still has a strong math school, which puts it amongst the leaders in software engineers. Kaspersky antivirus protects a huge number of devises in the world, as an example.

12 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. It borders Norway to the west and Finland to the east, and is connected to Denmark in the southwest by a bridge-tunnel across the Öresund. At 450,295 square kilometers (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, with a total population of 10 million.

The usa may have good technologists but they don't treat their devices with care! They don't even see the people starving to death, people practically being forced into slavery. They don't see it, they only see the bad thing among themselves. Their kids are spoiled little brats who don't pray to god thanking him for everything they have! They have chances that other children only dream of! They don't see the pain others go through. They only think of themselves and you want to know why? Because they are selfish bastards. That's why.

We have our optical fiber, one of the best cellphone coverage, best internet connection and infrastructure in tech/network.

We have, if not the best at least very very close to the best, submarines that even US have troubled finding on a short range. Our military tech regarding airplanes and artillery is in worldclass.

Our budget is not as high as other countries but we get the value of the money that are spent.

Come on, usa doesn't even have fiber in 20 % of its population. Without an good infrastructure (network and such) how can you call yourself high tech?

Sweden has the second highest average Internet connection. Sweden is the most eco friendly country in the world. And has the third best healthcare system in the world

13 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, Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. Its 3 territories are: Yukon, Northwest territories, and Nunavut. Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Vancouver, Winnipeg, St. John's, and Fredericton are major cities in the country. Canada's capital city, Ottawa, is in the southeastern province of Ontario, near the city of Montreal and the U.S. border. Sitting on the Ottawa River, it has at its center Parliament Hill, with grand Victorian architecture and museums like the National Gallery of Canada, with noted collections of indigenous and other Canadian art. The park-lined Rideau Canal is filled with boats in summer and ice-skaters ...read more.

I know for a fact that Canada is way more technologically advanced than the USA. They took years to get wireless interface machines and they still don't have chips in their credit/debit cards.

US power plants are not as green. Even simple things such as a crosswalk that beeps for the blind, is rare to see in the US.

Sure they have Smart Phones and stuff, but so does mostly every other country in the world.

Even if you look at American companies, they are heavily employed by international people. For example: The Canadians who worked on the AVRO Arrow project, were some of the finest engineers who then moved onto NASA, making it possible for computers to pilot aircraft and spacecraft to this day.

Not saying that there aren't some brilliant American's out there, because there are! It's just that America is very quick to slap a "Made in USA" sticker on anything that is financially funded by them, yet still not invented by one of their own.

Q: Who ...more

The Government of Canada has put a large focus on technology in recent years, providing tons of funding towards STEM educational programs in universities as well as high schools. With tech hubs such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Waterloo gaining in talent each year, it would not be surprising to see the next big tech companies founded in Canada.

Ah the Canada arm? Don't suppose any other country in the world has a giant ass space arm? Yeah I thought not.

Whats' that? We are building another, Oh that's right.

Also where do you think the Americans get all of their talent? Grade "A" Canadian D.N.A.

Another thing I should mention is our healthcare system, our medical technology is not only rather advanced, but also accessible.

Life saving cancer treatment that would otherwise cost nearly a million $ in usd, is pretty much free here.

Canada is super high Tech compared to where I live in the UK, They have machines for everything there. sky scapers and tech start ups everywhere, they may not be number one but feels like they are a bit a head of the UK when it comes to having the newest tech available everywhere. They have central heating, central AC, central water boilers in every house. machines to do anything from collecting garbage to self driving street cleaners to even little remote controlled food delivery cars. I was kinda mind blown

14 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities.

The country is situated in Western-Central Europe, and is bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. Switzerland is a landlocked country geographically divided between the Alps, the Swiss Plateau and the Jura, spanning an area of 41,285 km2 (15,940 sq mi). While the Alps occupy the greater part of the territory, the Swiss population of approximately eight million people is concentrated mostly on the plateau, where the largest cities are to be found: among them are the two global cities and economic centres Zürich and Geneva. ...read more.

How is this nation lower than Austria? Swiss people are so internet savvy that it's unbelievable. Their level is nearly on par with Germany's with their internet everythings and watch-production. And Germany is #5 on this list! (Switzerland is #18)

What Switzerland is doing here, is one of the most advanced country in the world, in the top 3 as European countries along with Germany and France.

The Swiss are very internet savvy, there's probably a reason why they're so neutral.

From mechanical Swiss watch to modern day fighters, from Cadburys to Nestle, weather... Everything is great. Hats off

15 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 the world's sixth-largest country. Australia is the oldest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent, with the least fertile soils. It is a megadiverse country, and its size gives it a wide variety of landscapes and climates, with deserts in the centre, tropical rainforests in the north-east, and mountain ranges in the south-east.

Australia has the highest lists of Mineral Production than anywhere in he world. It has so much advanced technology than the US and even though the small population, compared to the US, people in Australia use more technology (iPads, tablets, and computers) than the United States.

We developed vaccines for diseases before the US we have the best economy in the world. Australia is very advanced in the fields of science and innovation one of the best countries to run a start up business and entrepreneurial businesses.

We are secretly training kangaroo solders similar to the call of duty dog. This efficient solder is very effective on the battlefield, they are also capable to carry small nuclear bombs in there pouch to enemy forces

I travel between USA and Australia a lot. I can't believe how much more advanced day to day technology is in Australia compared to the USA. Australia makes the USA seem third world. It really surprised me.

16 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 square kilometres (130,678 sq mi) with a population of 5.5 million. Helsinki is the capital and largest city, forming a larger metropolitan area with the neighbouring cities of Espoo, Kauniainen, and Vantaa. The vast majority of the population are ethnic Finns; Finnish, alongside Swedish, are the official languages. Finland's climate varies from humid continental in the south to the boreal in the north. The land cover is primarily a boreal forest biome, with more than 180,000 recorded lakes.

Finland was the first ever country to develop a cell phone that can be carried around, without Finland, we wouldn't have the devices we are using right now. Also, on the UN report for the worlds most technologically advanced countries, Finland was number 1 out of 73 countries. People may argue that the US does have superior technology but I tend to disagree. Without Finland, USA would have had nothing to base of their inventions. If Finland hadn't developed the Nokia, a computer could look like something straight out of doctor Seuss.

Technology is integrated in to the everyday life and relative to its size, Finland produces the highest amount of technological innovations. USA is like a third world country compared to Finland or other Nordic countries.

I am a Finnish fan,and we all know Finland was the first to pioneer Cell phone technology,enabling the whole world to leap forward a thousand years into modern communication technology! Finland is no. 1.

Just thinking of Nokia, not much else except brilliant health care and physics.

17 Philippines The Philippines, officially the Republic of the Philippines, is an archipelagic country in Southeast Asia. It is situated in the western Pacific Ocean and consists of around 7,641 islands that are broadly categorized under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The Philippines is bounded by the South China Sea to the west, the Philippine Sea to the east, and the Celebes Sea to the southwest. It shares maritime borders with Taiwan to the north, Japan to the northeast, Palau to the east and southeast, Indonesia to the south, Malaysia to the southwest, Vietnam to the west, and China to the northwest. The Philippines covers an area of 300,000 km2 (120,000 sq mi) and, as of 2021, it had a population of around 109 million people, making it the world's thirteenth-most populous country. The Philippines has diverse ethnicities and cultures throughout its islands. Manila is the country's capital, while the largest city is Quezon City; both lie within ...read more.

I am using a laptop made in the Philippines, and it's amazing, fast and reliable, no trouble using it. I think the Philippines is one of the most technologically advanced country in the world, since we have had a nuclear power plant first before China made one, although it is not in use, and also, inventors in the Philippines have ideas which can give solutions to the problems of safety of people, the Philippine government is just ignorant of it, that is why the advancement of the Philippines in terms of technology is not revealed.

Though we could saythat the Philippines is now one of the high-tech country, it has yet to prove its High technology capabilities along with the most high-tech countries in the world. Philippines has one of the most talented and intelligent people in the world. One thing that I observed is that the government is not taking any much priority when it comes to science and technology. But based on what I observed now with the Philippines, the current government is now striving to cope with the modern era along with the most high-tech countries in the world.

During an interview with former USA President George Bush regarding the question of a media personnel talking about the richest country in the world, he said. "Philippines, even Marcos knew about it." In fact, Philippines is home to many geniuses who invented different kinds of technology. However, we can't deny the fact that the government doesn't support any of them due to lack of fund. But still, Philippines is a rich country blessed with abundant resources and brilliant minds waiting to bloom.

The minds of Filipinos are high tech, but does not materialize in Philippines. Their high tech minds materializes in other countries where they contribute to the technology development in USA, Singapore, Canada, South Korea, Japan, United Kingdom and mainland Europe, The Middle East, and the rest of the world.They are the most intelligent educators and trainors and easy to communicate in almost all race in the world.In short, they are the most highly integrated people in all aspect that makes the country the pool of hidden protocols that materializes and realized (SADLY) in power countries.

18 Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often in German, and referred to Vienna, showing its influence well before the Austrian Empire. After the first World War, Austria became a small country, under 10 million population, but including the world's then 4th largest city. 'A big head on a small body' they said. In 1938 Hitler invaded his home country and imposed Naziism. Vienna was then the World's largest Jewish centre, many famous people, eg. Sigmund Freud, had to leave. After 1948, Vienna declined as the 'iron curtain' cut eastern Austria off from its natural hinterland. ...read more.

20 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. Oslo is the capital of Norway. Norwegian is the official language of Norway.

They are one of the largest weapons exporters in the world, and the maker of things like GPS guided artillery shells, stealthy cruise missiles, and explosive armour piercing incendiary machine-gun rounds.

It is number 1 in everything, it should be number 1 in this list to.

In terms of everyday technology, Norway is way more developed than the US. Although the US produce more tech, norwegians in general have better internet, better T.V.'s, computers and such.

Norway is the best

22 Iceland Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic Ocean and the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland's capital and largest city is Reykjavík, which (along with its surrounding areas) is home to over 65% of the population. Iceland is the only part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that rises above sea level, and its central volcanic plateau is erupting almost constantly. The interior consists of a plateau characterised by sand and lava fields, mountains, and glaciers, and many glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Iceland is warmed by the Gulf Stream and has a temperate climate, despite a high latitude just outside the Arctic Circle. Its high latitude and marine influence keep summers chilly, and most of its islands have a polar climate.
23 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

24 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 by the ROC consist of 168 islands, with a combined area of 36,193 square kilometres (13,974 sq mi). The main island of Taiwan, formerly known as Formosa, has an area of 35,808 square kilometres (13,826 sq mi), with mountain ranges dominating the eastern two-thirds and plains in the western third, where its highly urbanised population is concentrated. The capital, Taipei, forms along with New Taipei City and Keelung the largest metropolitan area of Taiwan. Other major cities include Kaohsiung, Taichung, Tainan, and Taoyuan. With 23.45 million inhabitants, Taiwan is among the most densely populated countries in the world.

It is ridiculous how Taiwan ranks alongside North Korea in technological terms. Taiwan's semiconductor industry is world-leading and is crucial to just about every single computer produced in the world, and should at least be ranked close to South Korea, if not equally.

Taiwan has a strong electrical engineering industry, and also one of the most precise metalworking industries in the world.

I live in Canada, many public transportation systems are designed by Taiwan. Even Canadian think Taiwan is way better than Canada

Taiwan's technology is pretty good, could be compared to Estonian, Chinese, and Israeli tech.
