Interesting. As usual the PRCs got it mostly wrong. Germany is stronger, France is weaker China is exaggerated and the value for Japan and for India is totally incorrect.

This depends on a lot of factors.  As the founder of this site (I think) once pointed out, there are only three countries now that can unilaterally project force globally (America, Britain, and France), and only one of them that can do so at any level above expeditionary force.  On that scale, there are only three countries to rank.  However, from a defensive standpoint, a country like China is actually stronger than any single state in Europe, and even India probably is.  Maybe the only way to really list them is by offensive, and defensive capacity.  Then there's latent capacity, which would propel a country like Japan past any in Europe, and into the #2 offensive position, with Germany able to leapfrog France and Britain as well.  Just as important as anything else is the "paper tiger" factor.  How strong is the public's stomach?  And how strong is the leadership's will, or ability, to go against public sentiment?  How tough can the military get with the enemy without the media and human rights groups screaming that there are abuses?  All Western nations weaken noticeably when that's factored in.

as the tittle does not specify in what you realy mean bassing it on a mix of economic, military, capability on sustainability, resources, population and education on that population. Countries like Isriel and South Korea are over rated for with out forign support would colapes very quickly. Even China and India gaining ground very fast are still reliant on western money to buy the goods of wich they vastley produce for export. Sleeper countries with week armies but massive economies and recourses would convert very quickly in a hostal world, Germany, Japan, Canada and Australia. Saying the poop realy hit the fan and evry country was completly on its own the list would look like this. 1 USA 2 Russia 3 China 4 Germany 5 UK 6 France 7 Japan 8 Canada 9 Italy 10 Australia
 
If Russia, Sadia Arabia, and Canada didnt exist neither would 91% of the worlds oil supply.

Money is power, half of these nations don't have two cents to rub together, and their currency is so weak that it's laughable.
S.Korea has 0 resorses.
