Top 10 Most Powerful Countries of the 21st CenturyTop 10 Most Powerful Countries in The World 2050 Based on Economy, defense Power and Other Factors. Proven Sources.
The Top Ten
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 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
Despite the fact that India and China have significantly larger populations than the United States, they both still have massive internal hurdles to overcome, (more Indians can understand English than Hindi and the Chinese military doesn't even have a joint-command structure). Even if India or China overtook the U.S. in economic size, they still lack effective armed forces. Despite some claims, the U.S. is by far the most powerful military, and is likely to remain so for some time. Likewise, the U.S. wields a disproportionate of soft power. American corporations abound with global influence. How many Chinese or Indian firms can you name? Not to mention the fact that both China and India experience massive emigrations of highly skilled workers to countries like the U.S. despite all of this, it is likely that India, China, and other developing countries will increase their power and global influence relative to the U.S. and other Western countries, however the U.S. will probably remain ...more
Usa is nothing but a BIG BIG BULLY!. They create their own demons and fights them. They intervene in all conflicts not for the restoration of peace or any democratic bull but for the lone sake to sell weapons. Has any matter the US intervened had a positive result... i don't find any. Uncle Sam still thinks of his old days when it can dictate none more than a few puppets in Korea or Europe. Before a few years we had the Commies of Soviet Russia who played such a sport but they were little lacking in business skill than our beloved Sam Uncle. Look where are they now, once a world power but now nothing more than a third world country which boasts with its still left military goods of cold war era. A mafia world filled with drug lords and escorts ruled by Czar Putin. Usa too will have the same fate just like USSR and if needed to say like former British empire which blundered a few months ago with a plebiscite. - kattapa
The USA has the largest economy, and it is expected to stay that way for a long while (2030 definitely, maybe beyond 2030) and it has the largest air force.V 76 Comments
2050 will be a china's worst day because india wil overtake them in all ways
According to projections, USA is actually still going to go strong, but will be overtaken. Like the other comment says, I think they are saying it will be 1. India, then China, then the USA, and then Indonesia. However the power gap between the USA and Indonesia will be EXTREMELY high.

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.
Only a Franco-German union could hope to remain a power in the future with China, India, and the United States.V 13 Comments
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 s population is decreasing awfully,it will be bad for the Japanese Economy by 2050.
Japan needs to have more babies,just like Germany. - Eraklious
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
Small but well trained and modern
We have the SAS the best rained army in the world better than seals. We might be small but that makes it easier for us because places like Russia and Canada they have a big country especially Russia and you think britain is less powerful that Russia I could go from the north of Canada and see 1 guard per mile

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
Pakistan will never become super power. Whatever you all have done with my country, we Afghans will never let you to dominate in Asia. Pakistan will break brick by brick. Inshallaha very soon.
Pakistan have a bright potential if they shed creating safe havens for perverted terror groups for minimal gains and built up a concrete democratic modern approach on world affairs. Otherwise its sure they are gonna break into mere warring provinces, a representation of how good a country can be screwed by few short sighted politicians and religious leaders. - kattapa

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.

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.
Brazil s Population is half European ancestry half Mulatto and Mestizo ancestry. - ErakliousV 2 Comments

I love turkey.. more and more.. may Allah help you in every aspects...V 11 Comments
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.
CANADA IS THE BEST ASIAN COUNTRY EVE@R! @$V 6 Comments
Spain has a military power comparable to Italy military power.Spain and Italy are sister nations. - Eraklious
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.
Increase of deadly spiders does not count as population. The continent will fall under arachnoid empire within 6 years I bet!
Australia is single handily the most best and powerful country in the world, I'm no biased I am Canadian.

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!
If it continue to stay in its path I believe they can become better.V 22 Comments
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.
