You're forgetting about the Wakandans for Christ's sake. No wonder black people are rioting everywhere.

hmm...

1. Rome
2. Greece
3. Norway
4. Finland
5. Ancient Egypt
6. Japan
7. The Aztecs
8. Gonna say Italy here even though I realize that's part of Rome, but I feel like I need to differentiate between the old Roman Empire and the renaissance.
9. U.S.A.
11. Great Britain
12. Ottoman Empire

One of my reasons for choosing the countries I did, was because I believe in they have the best republican forms of government in my opinion for different reasons for each. Mostly their liberal democracies.

Most that come to the USA are not fleeing anything.
There are many choices you left off your list, the Chinese is one notable miss, I would have the US in the top three, and United Kingdom is debatable, Israel is not one.

Debt accumulation as representing wealth.

Can you explain your opinion on why they are one of the greatest Nations or not?

In some ways I’d say Israel is better than America.

America takes in HALF of the world’s immigrants, and that’s only counting those who come in LEGALLY.

UK has to be up there when they were at their peak. Had the U.S. colonies, Canada, Australia, ect...very impressive for such a small country. If we are going to go off of just military power the Mongolian Empire just stomped everyone they came across. I like your mention of Chinese, but it would have to be ancient China and not modern China, as they are behind the U.S.

There are just so many to choose from. It's hard to just choose three for me, tbh.

The question includes past history and the present, hence I do not agree with the list they chose.

I respect some of Israel’s republican form of government and they’re God-fearing ways. No I am not Jewish by religion, ethnicity, or race; I just respect them. I may not like their views on infant circumcision, but that is only one disagreement and nobody agrees on everything.
