For centuries, countries have gone to war only because they were trying to prove who was more powerful than the other. While it may be good to look at how powerful a country is in terms of military might, it is even better to consider the strength of a country in terms of its economy. Reason being that, the stronger economy can permit a country purchase and maintain all the military resources they require if they so desire. That said, we now take a look at the 5 most powerful countries in the world.

United States

United States

The United States has managed to maintain its supremacy over other countries long after the World War II. The country has managed to stay on the top thanks to its population, its natural resources as well as its love for entrepreneurship. The country encourages its citizen to take on business opportunities. On the other hand, one way or the other the US has grown to become a super power partly due to the numerous wars it has gotten itself into. It has decided to play the role of big brother of the world stepping in to help small countries in distress. While this has been seen by many as a commendable act, there those who think the US is a bully country.
