Top Ten Non-Aligned Nations That Could Thrive After World War III

If the world's major power-blocs would go to war, and the rest of the world somehow weren't destroyed, these states would have risen from the ashes to influence a new world order.

The Top Ten

1 India

India is right next to Pakistan and would likely be drawn into any war involving China, not to mention they can barely feed their own population as it is.

2 Indonesia

Indonesia ranked 15th in terms of GDP (not Per Capita) - CerealGuy

3 Saudi Arabia
4 Egypt
5 Bangladesh

If your idea of "thriving" is a malthusian collapse and descent into warlordism, than yes.

Their population can be a great fish bait for economy :D - CerealGuy

6 Thailand
7 Nigeria
8 Vietnam
9 Myanmar
10 South Africa

Military and economy. Growing, although slowly, diversity. Geographic location far enough from likely centralized combat zones, still positioned to help the rest of the world
