Top 10 Countries Most Likely to Win WWIII

The Top Ten
1 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

The US has firepower that the other countries wouldn't believe. When the others are ready, you will find us more than ready. Remember: "The sound of hissing is not us pissing. When you hear the thunder, no need to wonder. When you smell that smell, you better run like hell."

We might have weak leadership at this time, so I would suggest not waiting until after election time.

USA - economy would be like the Great Depression as the USA would spend all its money on war efforts - size of military. Army, Air Force, Navy equipment and build all factories needed to produce the war machine. Not that we don't have enough already.

This event has already been planned and prepared. Tie that to experience in war, and no one could beat us on their best day. We may struggle in the beginning because of all the different war fronts, but we will outfight, overpower, and push back all enemies until they lose or surrender one or two at a time. Wake up, people! USA #1.

2 China China, officially known as the People's Republic of China, is a country located in East Asia. It is the world's second most populous country, boasting a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and shares its borders with 14 countries, making it second only to Russia... read more

China will probably ally itself with Russia in World War Three. And I think China can win because China won in the Korean War when China only had numbers of people and basically no weapons. The Chinese only had a very few guns during the first part of the war. The other guns were captured after they hit back the United States.

Now we also have bombs, planes, ships, and whatnot. So, probably we can win. But who knows? Maybe we will ally with the United States because World War Three will be against something, and maybe China and the United States will both stand against them.

3 India India, officially known as the Republic of India, is a country located in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area and the most populous country, with over 1.4 billion people. Additionally, it is the most populous democracy in the world... read more

Secrets are always secrets in this country. Everyone knows that even Indians comprise almost 50% of Americans. All the top-level officials are Indians, and most of the military equipment was created by Indians in their country. So does anyone doubt India's capabilities even now?

India would definitely be the winner because:

It has the world's second-largest army, fifth-largest air force, and sixth-largest navy.

During times of war, as far as I know, Russians would definitely help the Indians, so will many other countries.

4 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

I think Russia would win. The USA can be destroyed in seconds by Russia, and I am American too. I don't think we are allies with them, but if the USA, Russia, and Asia are teamed up, I think they can blow up the whole world in seconds. The USA or Russia would win if they are teamed up. I will be glad.

The second-strongest nation, Russia, has allies like China and many Western allies (like Turkey). India could probably join the Russian side of the conflict. The US, as an opponent, has too many enemies across the world.

And Russia can survive thanks to its size. If you nuke the US and Russia at the same size area, Russia still has 50% of its area remaining.

5 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... read more

It's pretty advanced for such a small country.

6 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

We won the last two wars with help from every ally involved. I think we could win again!

Good technology and a very well-trained army… Type 45 destroyer and almost new weapons coming into use.

The UK should at least be #2! God save the Queen!

7 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

France could most likely win World War III because of its nuclear weapons and strong government.

8 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the Juche leader Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung... read more

Honestly, I didn't expect to see North Korea here. North Korea is allies with two world powers, which makes them stronger. And the fact that hatred for countries (like the USA, no offense) boosts them. They also have several nukes.

Because they have Fat Daddy Kim Jong Un… what a man! Someone as hot as him will win!

It has a lot of nukes. Its government isn't very amazing, though.

9 South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana... read more
10 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

This country had an effective part in the First World War and is experiencing nuclear developments right now.

The Contenders
11 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian... read more

Don't underestimate the Islamic Republic. Islam can do much!

12 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

Part of NATO now, so we should have a fair chance. No offense to Italians or Japanese, but they sucked as allies in WWII. Not saying I agree with Hitler's ideology, but if we had had better allies, we could have won both world wars.

They should have learned their lesson 74 years ago!

It didn't win, but it did well in both World Wars.

13 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
14 Croatia Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia (independence since 1991), is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean. Its capital city is Zagreb. It is a member of the European Union. During the Cold War it was part of Yugoslavia. It is a cultural more.
15 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
16 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
17 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... read more

Switzerland would watch and eat popcorn while the others fight each other. After the war, all the other countries would be weakened, and Switzerland would be the only thriving country.

As a neutral country, Switzerland could supply its allies with resources while not being directly involved in the war.

Switzerland would be the true winner by not getting involved.

18 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

Canada will most likely enter the war quite late, so they won't have as many casualties and wasted resources.

It's very large and could maybe do well.

19 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 the official languages of Pakistan. The world's second-highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat)... read more

Pakistan is likely to win any war, especially with India, because it spends more than half of its budget on the military and is the first and only Islamic country to develop nuclear weapons. Further, it is allied with China, and China has pledged full support to Pakistan in any war. Moreover, all Islamic countries support Pakistan.

World War III will happen far decades away! And hopefully, by that time, Pakistan will at least come in the 30 largest economies. Moreover, the population might cross the U.S., so I think Pakistan stands a chance!

20 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.
21 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... read more
22 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
23 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
