41 Azerbaijan Azerbaijan Azerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe.
42 Netherlands Netherlands

A stable economy and a good military however with the 21st comin to a close the Netherlands would struggle in their aim to protect themselves against the rising sea levels

The Netherlands will be underwater by 2100.

43 Romania Romania Romania is a sovereign state located in Southeastern Europe It borders the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, and Moldova. It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state ...read more.
44 Kazakhstan Kazakhstan Kazakhstan, officially known as the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country in northern Central Asia, with a sliver of its territory west of the Ural River extending into Eastern Europe.

Kazakhstan is slowly advancing in development and soon it could very well make it to a developed economy and to protect them a strong, sturdy military.

45 Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia-Herzegovina or Bosnia & Herzegovina, abbreviated BiH or B&H, and, in short, often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in Southeastern Europe located on the Balkan Peninsula.

Balkan nations have a turbulent history of conflict. - Eraklious

46 Vatican City Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome.

The pope has power over millions of people he could tell millions of Christians to take this country for God and they would do it, never mess with a religious figure because they are a lot more powerful than you think

The catholic church can actually be consitered a superpower in some ways. They have global reach, constitutional influence in many countries and control a universal monetary system.

Vatican City I wish it is a superpower.

47 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

Would have benn the 3rd strongest if this was 2007

Ireland will unite with Ulster after Brexit collapses Britain,mark my words.I am European and Geopolitics class in my college. - Eraklious

48 Denmark Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

Greenland which is part of Denmark would start flourish even more due to climate change so it will be around 30 ranks higher in the future you wait and find out

Strong politically lots of land including Greenland

49 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

While I'm sure that Norway's oil will have run out by 2050 this does not stop Norway being a powerful nation Norway has a fairly strong military and it is one of the most developed nations in the world and I'm positive they will stay this way far into the 2000's

50 Morocco Morocco

Morocco should unite with Algeria...same ArabBerber mix population,same history,same military power,same regional power. - Eraklious

Ethiopia is the most powerful nation of East Africa,its needs more railways thou. - Eraklious

52 Latvia Latvia Latvia, officially the Republic of Latvia, is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, one of the three Baltic states.

Latvia has smaller military power than Lithuania...Nationalism is growing in Baltic states I think,all three of them. - Eraklious

53 Nauru Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific.
54 Burundi Burundi Burundi, officially the Republic of Burundi, is a landlocked country in the African Great Lakes region of East Africa, bordered by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west.

55 New Zealand New Zealand
56 Tunisia Tunisia Tunisia, officially the Tunisian Republic or the Republic of Tunisia is the northernmost country in Africa, covering 165,000 square kilometres.
57 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.

This nation is at the moment the most peaceful nation in the world and with the way they are going could stay that way far into the 2100's but don't be fooled there defense force is very powerful and they have friends in NATO.

Also there small population makes them a quiet nation in the world of politics but when they make their voice heard nations will realise how powerful Iceland is.

Could easlier start building a miltary plane, military ship and military equipment every month for the next hundred years and not get distracted due to its peace and will surprise the world in the process, for example USA Russia and China and others are always fighting something, somewhere all the time and lose planes ships and people and equipment in the process and so pretty much Iceland is going to go up the ranks by 2050-2100 for then they might have a decent population and a lot of tuff warfare vehicles, planes, ship, equipment and people so if you wanna bet you have already lost because why would anyone want to take Iceland at this moment in time? Please say if you have
