this is a forum thing I will do once a week maybe, but here's a forum debate idea. What is the most successful country? Through out history here's what I think.

0.Germany (Derkaiser has a gun to my head)

1.Number one is America they started out small and had a low population but they turned-out to be one of greatest country's in the world in almost all fields. There main problem I would say is there rising inequality and social issues. But largest economy and 3rd in the world in science (used to be by far #1)Coming out on the winning side on all important wars also helped them significantly. They have a huge influence in the world there corporations are every where and there massive military helps them spread there influence to all seven continents. Although they do have some social issues they have been at times the most democratic country in the planet.(accept for blacks)What I think is the biggest issue for America in maintaining there power is rising markets like China.

2.Britain has had a interesting history of conquest democracy industrialization and colonization, but there superpower days are over I put it here because Britain seems to take a course like America Superpower but declining to countries like America Germany and Russia, but they had a monopoly on industrial goods and a huge empire and still have a successful democracy.

3.China has had a Glorious past of intellectual achievement and successful states and city's, but china had a huge blip when they were to conservative with technology and fell behind Europe. What is next for them is beyond me there economy is huge but there's so many people to feed a domestic and international market that there production of goods wont stop soon but they have had economic blips

These were pretty much the ones I was thinking about as I was clicking the thread. I have nothing to argue.

I think the only real argument with your list is #3...there's a case to be made for including Japan instead. Other than that, I agree.

I have one thing to say to the charge that America has racial inequality. Bullshit. Yes we have out issues but why do people think that only crazy racism exists in America? For goodness sake Saddam Hussein murdered thousands of people because they were Kurdish, if that isn't racist I don't know what is and even during the time America had slaves we never did that ( to my knowledge ). The west was the last To use slavery and the first to abolish it

Stirring up minorities, such as blacks, has been a tactic by democrats since the 60s just like it's a common Republican tactic to make it seem as Democrats are anti Christian. Both are just stupid things made up by both major parties

America is a lot better than Britain. It started small, and in only a few decades became a top-5 world superpower. The last time Britain did anything was 1900 (boer war). Furthermore, it esposed revolutionary democratic principles

Britain controlled "half" of the globe for about 70 years, lost its industrial lead half-way into that, and was a American vassal by the end of WW2.

The fact that the British didn't manage to prevent our success, while we did a pretty good job of messing up Vietnam...

You can't abstain the role Nixon played in the mess though. Plus the American government was the one who supported the horribly corrupt and dictatorial government of Ngo Dinh Diem.

The Conservative is derailing this with his patriotism :/ Please stay on topic.

Before we talk about how "successful" a country is, lets define success first. Since we talk about countries I guess we can forget already gone empires like the mongolian empire or the roman empire. So what is "success"? I would define success when it comes to countries, how much cutural diversity it shows or how good it is in science.
So rather than a big list I would divide it into more smaller lists.

Cultural: (No specific order)
- Austria (12 century - 1918; it united more ethnic group than ever before under one flag)
- USA
- Russia ("Russian" doesnt mean "Russian", Russia is one country that cointains more cultural groups than every other country (Siberia, Caucasus))

Science: (No specific order)
- USA (especially when it comes to medicine, electronical devises, etc)
- China (Paper, Black powder, Porcelain, etc)
- England
- France
- Germany
- Japan

Military: (No specific order)
- USA
- Russia (Try to invade it :)
- England
- Mongolia (not anymore)
- Italy (not anymore)
- Spain (not anymore)

This is just my personal opinion/list so feel free to leave your opinion here, if you want.

You forgot the Ottomans for Science and the Umayyad Dynasty for military power. The Byzantines should also be noted for their cultural achievements (i.e. Hagia Sofia).

Mongols because genghis Khan, and when looking at a general trend of empire-building, they seem to be the exception.

I get what I said about minorities was a bit misunderstood, I COMPLETLY AGREE WHAT WAS SAID about democrats but my point about being the most democratic except for blacks was because there was racial discrimination in the law most of the racism today is quite stupid I mean look at BLM in collages, Meanwhile I believe the British had ended slavery and segregation in 1836 (I believe im not entirely sure.)
What you said about japan I believe there is a point they have been very successful but china's scary.
