The UK! They have a decent sized army and have 225 nuclear missiles. That could destroy anyones country the messed with them multiple times. They also have the United States as there main ally and they are a part of NATO. With the United States, they have over 7,500 nuclear warheads enough to wipe out the world multiple times. And if you don't know what NATO is, it's a group of 28 members that agree to treat an attack on any country in the organization as the country attacking is attacking them.
