Powerful is relative and doesn't say anything.

If you want to talk about an Army, size doesn't help that much anymore, it's also about Equipment.

Smaller countries could be as "powerful" as others if you make a calculation per head etc.

Japan may be one of the richest nations, but its military is nothing, relative to other super powers.

I wonder what would be the most powerful (economic/military) per capita??

Sure most of the countries above have 100,000,000 people+ but in terms of economic and military power in relation to population size, who is the most powerful?

I'm assuming that when you say power you mean it in terms of military power. In that case, US is definitely numero uno.

Most powerful are definitely -

Andorra
Bhutan
Monaco
Liechtenstein
San Marino
Luxembourg
Greenland

The so called leader in the world, Huessah, have tried anything against them, the Marines, the FBI, the CIA, the New Hampshire National Guard, but I heard they will now use the IRS...
