Today, the USA is the most powerful country in the world. Several things play a key role in making a country the most powerful country in the world.

Think of it, competing against just five people oftentimes is very hard and costly. Now, imagine the big picture, what might a country have to go through to be the most powerful? How long it might take and of course how hard it is to retain the title?

The USA has been retaining the title of The Most Powerful Country in The World for years and years. As of today, there are a total of 195 countries in this world, and beating against all these countries, and leading the position must not have been easy.

So, today we will walk through the things that need to be considered for making a country the most powerful country in the world. Don't worry, we will walk through it together and we will make your brain full of knowledge.

What Makes A Country Successful And Powerful?

We all have heard that the USA is the most powerful country in the world. You might have also gone through the histories of the most powerful countries in the world a couple of times in your life or at least have heard about it.

But, have you ever wondered, what could be the reason behind that leadership? Or, what makes a country a superpower?

Several factors determine how powerful a country is. These factors are determined by the years of experience in comparing several countries and how they influence the world with their power.

Some of those key factors are economy, demography, military, natural resources, politics, culture, and technological development. If a country plays a leading role in all of these factors then that's what makes a country the most powerful. And it is not a joke to hold the first position in every single one of these factors leaving all the remaining 194 countries in the world behind.

But are these the only factors that determine the power of a country?

Well no doubt, there are some other key factors as well that help in positioning these countries based on their power. In addition to the above-mentioned factors, leadership quality, economic influence, political stability, stable international relations, and effective military unions are also used as the key factors in ranking countries based on their power.

When ranking all the countries in the world based on these factors, oftentimes countries appear before and after one another depending on how advanced they are on that factor. But, with no surprise, the USA holds the first position in all these factors and this is what makes it the most powerful country in the world.

Instead of just dwelling around on these factors, why don't we consider the real-life example?

Let's, take the example of the current most powerful country in the world, the USA.

Why Is The US The Most Powerful Country? Why Is USA The Strongest Country?



The advanced and widely spread military of the USA is one of the very important things that make the USA the most powerful. A powerful military takes up the combination of tons of powerful weapons, tanks, ships, aircraft, and advanced technologies along with a fluent communication system.

But, is counting the number of tanks, ships, and aircraft simply enough to make a powerful military?

Getting updated with the current technologies and figuring out how others have been preparing plays a significant role. Pairing the tools with a specific target in the warfare along with appropriating those tools productively oftentimes, predicts the success.

The US military is not only based within the country but there are around 800 US military bases spread out to over 70 countries and territories. Wonder what, this takes a huge huge investment of more than trillions of dollars. Think of it, why would a country invest huge money on something?

Besides the military, the USA is also rich in its environmental and natural resources. For example, the USA has a very well-flourished oil and gas industry.

Did you know that the USA is the largest oil-producing country in the world?

The USA produces more than 17 million barrels of oil per day on average. It accounts for a total of 18% of the world's total oil production. The USA has been retaining the top position in the oil and gas field for several years and maybe more.

Did you know that it was in 2013 when the USA leaded Saudi Arabia to be the world's top oil producer?

The ongoing advancement in the oil and gas technologies has been accelerating the USA in flourishing it's oil and gas industry. All the fracking going on in the various shale formations like Eagle Ford Shale, Wolfcamp, San Andres, and Clear Fork shale formations in the Permian Basin, Bakken (Sanish) formations and Birdbear (Nisku) formations in North Dakota, etc. have boosted the US economy to a very high level.

Besides these, political stability, a strong economy, and blooming progression towards technological advancement have leaned the US towards its expanding power. Along with these, a potential leader with excellent leadership goes hand on hand in making a country the most powerful.

Knowing about the past is as important as knowing the present. So, let's dive deeper into recognizing the other powerful countries in the world that ruled in past.
