3 Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific.

Its just obese and its military is awful, do they even have it?

Another Island nation. It could be wiped out in minutes.

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

Ethiopia is not weak, it has Beaten Italy in the First Italo-Ethiopian War, and Ethiopia is not poor, it has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and is Africa's second most populous country.

This is stupid Ethiopia beat up Italy's ass in World war one and also is the only African country to not be colonized by anyone.

Ethiopia is clearly a weak country. It is one of the world's poorest countries.

It's just less than powerful, I mean, have you seen the pictures?

5 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 located in Pakistan.

No, Pakistan is a very strong Nation. We have only lost two out of five wars.
Nobody dare declares war on us(especially the indians because I think they remember what happened to them in 1967). WE are the bravest nation in the world, in case you were wondering and please research before you type anything, whoever was posting rude things about Pakistan.
PAKISTAN ZINDABAD

Has lost all the wars against. It is the only country who surrendered with 93000 soldiers in 1971, after 2nd world war. The army is so weak that they need air support from americans to enter most of the parts in their own country. Left their post and ran in 1984 from Siachen when India launched offensive to capture it. They even refused to accept the dead bodies of their soldiers who were killed by Indian army in Kargil

Pakistan is the 6th nuclear power in the world, the pakistan isi is the one of the best intelligence agency in the world, pakistan is the full of talented & 4th intelligent country in the world,but pakistan can't become rich country because of his currupt government of nawaz shrif..but inshallah the pakistan is becoming the most attractive country in the world in just few years because of new prime minister imran khan, indians is so scared from us now

Are you kidding me pakistab was the country which defeated Soviet union in 1990 it defeated India in 1965. Americans tried to divide it but failed unanimously. It is only country in the world which defeated terrorists alone.

A Country that's like Argentinia always in crisis, a Country that is basically divided by itself, a Country that may seem strong phisically but is morally weak.
The USA is the only Country wich has all of the things I listed up here by now (and no not even North Korea is that bad).

People say that USA is the strongest country in the world. I'm saying this as an American, but let's compare us to Russia.. Yeah, don't think we would win THAT war.

I'm Canadian but I know that United States is currently the strongest country right now so what is up with the u.n the weakest.

UMMM Usa have 11 aircraft carries that are active I meant 11 and have the most in the world yes and I mean it soo yea why is USA even in this list?

Somalia is the only Non-Island nation that I voted for, simply because it has a lot of problems like corruption and famine. I thought of voting for the Vatican instead, but the Vatican is protected by Italy, which is pretty strong.

Somalia has tsunamis making it harder to be powerful when a tsunami destroys it

The Contenders

Really? India is very strong as a nation, with a powerful military and rising economy. This would be like calling China weak.

You think this if true! India is one of the most powerful nation if anyone even tried a war on we will show who is more superior

Weakest country in the world. In fact, it is super easy to destabilise India if there are certain markers in place. We are working on that.

It lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India, about 750 kilometres (470 miles; 400 nautical miles) from the Asian continent's mainland. The chain of 26 atolls stretches from ...read more.

This archipelago is already losing a war to the sea, thanks to global warming. It is in no state of fighting a war. The Only reason I could think of how it isn't that weak is because India could protect it from an invading force, and India is a force to be reckoned with.

15 Barbados

Another Island nation. It could be wiped out in minutes.

Don't have to explain

16 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.

I think bhutan is cool... but it has the weakest military on earth. It's a fact, not my personal oppinion or an estimate. Pakistan, USA, India, Japan, all near top? Come on guys vote seriously.

Bhutan is weak but it has no strategic importance because its mostly very rough and tall mountains no country tried to take Bhutan except the uk and even they gave up.

Seriously? Canada had a big role in both World Wars, and is now the tenth richest country in the world.

I think Canada is better than USA because there is a lot of gangsters and bullies.

Think about it for a second, Canada is a hell-ton important, high-tech, has major cities, major landmarks, major companies, its very well-known, and its overall powerful, so yeah

It's a bit too friendly and hardly has military.
