The most powerful nations in the world also are the ones that consistently dominate news headlines, preoccupy policymakers and shape global economic patterns. Their foreign policies and military budgets are monitored religiously. When they vow, at least a few in the international community trust, they'll keep it.

1. The United States

At the dawn of the 21st century, the United States of America bestrode the world as the sole remaining superpower. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union a decade before, American economic and military might dwarfed that of its rivals. American culture, from music, to film, to the blue jeans that they exported around the globe, were hungrily consumed. The political scientist Francis Fukuyama announced it to do the victory of liberal democracy as well as the end of history.

2. Russia

it's the largest nation in the world by area and it covers Northern Asia along with the majority of Eastern Europe. It has one of the biggest markets in the world, sustained by the broad natural sources in the country. It's a world leader when it comes to petroleum and natural gas reserves.

3. China

This country has become the most populous country in the world. It retains a great deal of financial influence and has got the second-largest economy in the world, just behind the US. According to the way the Chinese economy has rapidly grown over the previous three decades, it's very much possible that it might overtake the US economy in the near feature. The Asian country is also the world leader in exports, hence all the"Made in China" products that you see every day.

4. UK

Another permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, the United Kingdom -- composed of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland -- is now a highly developed nation located in western Europe. Though doubts now surround it due to the notorious Brexit, the UK is still one of the most effective nations on the planet.

5. India

The increasing power of India's economy, military capacities, and the fledgling space program are backed up by gentle power. The country is home to more billion-dollar startup business compared to everywhere except the USA of America and China, and its own Bollywood film industry produces more movies and sells more tickets than America's Hollywood.

6. Brazil

Together with Russia, India, and China, Brazil finishes the first quartet of so-called BRIC nations. They had been named by Jim O'Neil of Goldman Sachs in 2001, following his investment bank's prediction that they would eventually become four of the planet's five biggest economies by 2050.

7. Japan

The Japanese are in a strong position to become a leading player. Japan is investing heavily in its space program; this is now seen as not only a purely scientific endeavor but as critical to this country's continuing safety. Given the country's substantial financial clout and exceptionally substantial levels of technological prowess, few other countries would have the ability to compete.

8. Canada

For the 21st century, climate change is very likely to alter the planet forever. At its worst, it could herald the collapse of civilization as we know it. Even under more optimistic predictions, it might reshape global politics and the balance of power.

9. Iran

The Middle East may have room for a single superpower, however, there isn't room for 2. Saudi Arabia's interests will increasingly collide with people of Iran, another regional power with big ambitions. Both Saudi Arabia and Iran are Islamic countries. However, the Saudis are majority Sunni Muslims, and approximately 90% of Iranians are Shias. The two groups and the two nations usually do not get along well.

10. Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is the 12th largest nation on the planet and terms of natural sources, the second wealthiest. The Middle Eastern kingdom sits on enormous reserves of oil and natural gas worth something in the region of an astounding $34.4 trillion.
