Interesting quiz. I only missed Poland.

Amazing to see North Korea here
Jul 7th, 2010 at 04:11 GMT
Nice quiz. But Taiwan!!?? That was unexpected.
Jul 7th, 2010 at 06:47 GMT
I'm surprised nuclear capability isn't an included variable.
Jul 7th, 2010 at 08:50 GMT
Agreed with indianwolf1992 and Chase - would definitely have expected to see Israel over Taiwan.
Jul 7th, 2010 at 11:58 GMT
Israel is small country. Taiwan has more than 20 million people and a strong economy.

Poor Nauru and Tuvalu. Their rating is 0.000000. Even Liechtenstein and Marshall Islands managed 0.000001

Nice quiz, but the CINC is really weird and bears little relation to real-world geopolitics. You'd be very hard pressed to form an argument that Ukraine is more "powerful" than, say, Turkey or even Canada.
Jul 19th, 2010 at 13:34 GMT
Ukraine? The Ukraine is weak. It's feeble! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzLtF_PxbYw

I was almost expecting Vatican City to appear. I mean Religion is power.

Very interesting quiz, but a little odd. Japan's economy is huge but is it really that much more powerful/influential than the UK and France? And the Ukraine is more powerful than Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Spain? A little hard to swallow...

The source does not seem to match the quiz.
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 14:58 GMT
This quiz is several months old. It appears that the source has been updated. Why this quiz received such a sudden spike in popularity is unknown to me...
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 17:07 GMT
You should make a 'least powerful quiz'. It would be much harder
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 18:18 GMT
No Israel? WTF?
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 19:52 GMT
Maybe I'm over-thinking things, but I expected to see Panama on here. All they have to do is close the Panama Canal and they shut down shipping for the entire western hemisphere.
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 20:32 GMT
The exclusion of Israel should automatically invalidate the source's methodology. I realize Israel's small population and lack of natural resources hurt, but the country has consistently, repeatedly and thoroughly defeated a couple of the countries on the list in battle. At the same time.
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 20:38 GMT
Comment below threshold:
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 20:41 GMT
France shouldn't have made the list. Frogs.
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 22:39 GMT
It says on your Wiki source that China is higher than the USA.
Nov 3rd, 2010 at 22:51 GMT
I thought that with all the banking that Switzerland would be here,
Nov 4th, 2010 at 02:29 GMT
Switzerland has very little political power, though. The only one that really surprised me was Ukraine
Nov 4th, 2010 at 04:12 GMT
You've misspelled COMPOSITE.
Nov 4th, 2010 at 17:48 GMT
Cool, except your quiz doesnt match your source at all.
Nov 4th, 2010 at 18:44 GMT
gnatural beat me to the punch, but I was going to mention that I don't think this quiz has anything to do with 'composte'. That's a different quiz...
Nov 4th, 2010 at 20:36 GMT
Like I said, this quiz is OLD and the source has been UPDATED, which is why it doesn't match. I am too lazy to change it right now. And thanks for the spelling error pointer. Composte... lol.

This measure seems fundamentally flawed. North Korea can barely project power beyond the peninsular, and is only hanging on due to Chinese support, yet apparently it's more powerful than Saudi Arabia and Israel? Israel's lack of inclusion shows that it has failed to take into account even the most basic of signs of power: nuclear weapons, and the fact that Ukraine is appranently more powerful than a nuclear armed nation (Pakistan) really dosen't lend itself to the accuracy of the scale
Aug 27th, 2012 at 00:59 GMT
this should be a ratio of weapons, armies, and nukes
