Top 10 Most Powerful Countries of the 21st Century

Top 10 Most Powerful Countries in The World 2050 Based on Economy, defense Power and Other Factors. Proven Sources.

The Top Ten

1 India 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. more.

India would surely become a massive power in 2050 because of its high efficient and skilled people and increasing turn outs from Indian universities and incomes would raise substantially. Due to higher level of educational institutions available in India the people would obviously increase the health and nutrition facilities and its economic level too. lets hope all the Indians work for their country's development and raise the nation to the global standars jai hind

I hardly think so, India is a very poor country and China defeated India before. China has powerful army and China has money!

India will have one of the largest economy in the world by 2050, but it has to improve its overall infrastructure and extend education to lower castes as well as females in rural areas. Although India will have a very higher GDP Than USA, It will still be a middle income economy because of Massive Population, GDP Per Capita of India is Expected to Be Lower Than Its South Asian Neighbors in 2050.

A lot of people consider Indians very intelligent, and you cannot argue with that factor, India will defiantly be one of the largest economy, or the largest economy in the world by 2050, with brains that are witty, wise, and calm, as Indians have they will surely become powerful as they progress.

I myself an Indian would work hard to make my mother nation to be the world superpower. It has been 69 years that India got Independence. Within this 69 years we developed more faster than the USA and China. It has been 240 years that the spying shameless US got Independence. So slow are the Americans. Its not about the population that we grew up it is because those few educated Indians who showed selfless love to its fellow citizens and spread education which lead to the increase in the quality of population. But most of the Indians went to US for settlement. Thus US developed in both economy and space research especially. More than 40% of the scientists in NASA are Indians. The US only knows to spy and plot dirty tricks on other nations like the former USSR. Now things are changing. Most of the Indian citizens are working for the development of their nation. I salute India. Vande Mataram. One thing the person who said this " I hardly think so, India is a very poor country and ...more

Sure it has some political problems but otherwise, it's pretty powerful. We currently have the world's most powerful military. We are the world's largest manufacturer of automobiles, sea crafts, and aerial vehicles, save for Japan and China. Despite having some of the lowest scores in Common Core subjects there are some truly innovative people that come out of America. We may also have the largest number of nuclear weapons as well, other than Russia. We also have the largest number of diverse races than any country. Freedom of speech. Freedom of armament (Weapon ownership). Freedom of religion. FREEDOM FOR ALL!

I say the United States of America because without it, the world would crumble. I do not mean to be rude or offensive but it is true. Where does everybody look to in a time of crisis? The United States and its affiliated allies. We have some serious issues with corruption, economics and public systems. People rely on the government too much. Too many people are jobless. Our economy was destroyed, and is slowly inching back to stability. The reason that I put the United States at the top is due to the fact that we are the last country on Earth to still have the morals and values we had when we were founded. America was conceived after the Roman, Persian and British Empires. We learned from their mistakes. Look where we are today. Democracy was the answer. So, all of you from Canada and the United Kingdom who seem to think that the United States is filled with fools, for your information, it's not! Most of the greatest things the world have ever seen came out of America. The Wright ...more - JustRandomDude

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 more.

France has recently been able to put its vast military resources to good use through actions in Afghanistan, Libya, Mali, and against ISIS.

One of the best, actively fighting against terrorism in Middle East as well in more than 5 African countries (helped by African troops), economically could be better, but they improve especially on new economy next year will be the 1st start-up incubators in the world.

France just made big contract with Australia to provide 12 submarines for $50 billions. France accepted to build them in Australia and to share some manufacturing secrets.

France is great powerful country

They go through so many disaster, yet still stand and fight for their future without whining.

Maybe not now, but someday you'll get what you deserve.

Here's my respect, Japan.

Full of culture. Human rights, stand up for their beliefs along with America

The kind of effort they put and their amazing engineering... They should be on top of the list.

Japan will stay in the top if it continues to be in good relations with America & Canada.

8 Great Britain

We have the best universities, the most high tech navy and... LONDON!

Lots of people

Not this universe's Britain, but an alternate universe's. In an alternate timeline Britain won the Revolutionary War and took the entirety of the North American continent, save Mexico of course Spain controls them until their revolution. By the way slavery was abolished in Britain way before the Revolutionary War so no slavery would exist after the war. They would continue to have the greatest military in the world. They would have a presence in every continent in the world. Basically encircling the entirety of the world. They would slowly take control of everything and finally Pax Brittania would exist. HAIL BRITTANIA!

Britain has a very similar army to france however definitely should be above france. Britain's ability to deploy conventional forces anywhere in the world in a short amount of time gives it a cutting edge over france not to mention Britain's army is one of the most skilled in the world and has the best special forces on earth also Britain is set to keep its 6th biggest economy well past 2030 competing very closely with Germany. France is projected to fall to 9th place

9 United Kingdom 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 more.

Easy maths: No UK = No US and No Australia

England due to its support and massive reputation from the U.S and surrounding powers like Germany, France, Spain and Norway, would surely be powerful due to military support, financial support and overall diplomatic power as the country is on its last legs in our time. the power, overall, will increase due to the other countries being its last legs. The only reason Britain is failing due to its idiotic Trump clones in the parliament areas.

England is india's best enemy in past that's why I don't like them

Growing technological and tourism industry as well as the new Northern Powerhouse.

10 Pakistan 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 more.

Pakistan is amazing I love it

Pakistan is awesome but India sucks like a loser (l:<

Whilst Pakistan now has Nuclear weapons and substantial military assets that in itself does not mean it can be considered a superpower... Pakistan is a country with great potential, it may be classified as a regional power at present but it is a long way off being considered a global or superpower yet. - Saim92

I am Pakistani but no offense we want to become powerful but not by destroying other countries...We want to keep India and China and others as friends because we are brothers...But surely we would become a great nuclear power

11 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

More than 200 million people will call Brazil home by 2050, and their standard of living will be significantly improved from 2010. Income per capita will nearly triple over those 40 years. Brazil will also be the largest economy in Latin America.

Brazil has lots of natural resources and the interiorization of the economy that's been happening in the last few decades has the potential to help the country eliminate its structural problems

Brazil will be one of the major power.

I like brazil

The most bravest army of the whole world.

The most bravest army of the whole world. The military money is spend wisely. The proves are:- Indian Border war & Bangladesh liberation war.

It will have the strongest country in Asia.

Bengalis were born to rebel within their blood. We were able crush the Pakistani military establishment to save "Mother Bangla" and our love for our nation means we will die to preserve our identity regardless of which enemy tries to destroy our state.

Booming economy and rising military power will make this country a force to be reckoned with.

Strongest army and economy and landing important places will up Turkey

Turkey own growing economy and native powerful armies owing to it will be most powerful countries of the 21st Century. - tstural

This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, more.

To the guy who said Canada is the best Asian country: Wake up in Geography class, I do agree though, Canada is a powerful country

Canada will benefit from climate change, so it'll at least be close to a regional superpower by 2050.

Canada is the best PERIOD.

Surely canada will became a major power in world

15 Iran 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. more.

1) Big military
2) One of the safest countries in the world (except for the fascist government, but that's only a little problem).

Iran continues to flourish with its impressive dynamic infrastructure rooted in art, culture, architecture, the language, music, and Islamic traditions. The economy has surmounted with its oil and steel industry against sanctions that foreign countries have placed in the past. With out a doubt, Iran is also an extremely beautiful country with the Gorge Milad Tower in the capital, the ancient city of Persepolis, and the coastal regions near the Caspian Sea to the north and the Persian Gulf to the south. Regardless of what sometimes the media portrays with negative attributes, there is a larger majority of positive ones that people in the West may over look. Iran in all aspects is one of the most amazing countries one can experience.

Iran is a powerful country situated in a strategic region. Iran's population will hit 100 million in 2050. Iran has many resources and it has peaceful nuclear capabilities. Iran is one of oldest civilization and countries that exist today. Persia...

Surely Iran would be the top ten most powerful country in the world.

16 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

17 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

I cannot believe it! How come that this country is the most powerful in Southeast Asia? I'm just asking why we are #17 in the world (after the other 16 countries that dominate first before us), #6 in Asia (After India, China, Japan, Pakistan & Bangladesh) & most especially #1 in Southeast Asia? Gosh! This is proven that we have a president who is the major agent of greater change to make this country the best in Southeast Asia! Hope that PH will be great again! I'm rooting for this because I am a Filipino!

I believe that if truth has not been suppressed, the world has already known the Philippines to be the most powerful and the richest in the world. We are the Filipinos, to which the blood line of all races combined.

Philippines is just a little country but you know Filipino can defeat all time. I know Phillipines is a weak country in terms of defense but I believe that in the year 2050 it will more change just like ou economy growth and many more. In defense by the future we can defeated others but some countries we didn't because we are most friendliest countries in the Asia even world. So I am very proud that It is the most powerful country in our region Southeast Asia even in the world Top 15. Possible in the 21st century it can increases the ranking and possible can range at the top 10 not in the top 5 because they are the highest standard position even USA, China, and India. Proud to be Pinoy. MABUHAY!

Filipino Population will rise and be in the 10th Most Populated Countries by 2050, By 2050 it will be 16th in the World's Greatest Economies and by 2100, It might be on Top 6 on the List. On Military, I think they will take the 9th Spot by 2100 because of much more better Economy.

18 Australia Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.


Australia needs to improve a lot.

Not really.

Australia's population will continue to grow very fast; we hit 24 million 17 years faster than expected. Our military will also continue to grow as we undergo our modernization program. Our economy will also continue to grow as we sell our Ores to countries like India. By 2050, I predict that Australia will definitely be within the top 10 most powerful countries in the world.

It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such more.

Malaysia is WEAK. Not enough strong to defeat INDONESIA & VIETNAM. It must ranked 36

Singapore is considered to be a powerhouse in terms of economy,education and advanced global metropolitan that is usually ranked in the top 5 in the world.Now imagine Singapore on steroids.Bigger,richer and more potential for development.Malaysia is smart in terms of their political stance.Malaysia generally is an Islamic secular country that is western friendly but at the same time have relations with Qatar and Eastern countries.That's what Malaysia is and Malaysia can be in 10 or 20 yrs time.

22 Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages more.

Indonesia is not a most powerful country.It is the most baddest country ever.India is better than Indonesia.

A 17.9% increase by 2050 in an already-large working age population could set up Indonesia for China-like growth, if capital formation and infrastructure catch up. Natural resource extraction, a major source of growth so far, needs more investment.

The economy in there raising really fast!

The Republic of the Congo isn't a county as much as it is a geographic region on the map of Africa with no effective government and nothing close to an economy. Liechtenstein is more likely, by a long shot, to become a superpower than the RotC.
