Who in your opinion are the worlds top 5-10 superpowers? Keep in mind that a superpower is a state powerful enough to influence events throughout the world. I would rank the top 10 in the following order:

1. United States
2. Russia
3. China
4. Great Britain
5. Germany
6. France
7. India
8. Pakistan
9. Ukraine
10. Brazil

Also my apologies if this topic has been covered before.

China is the world's economic and military powerhouse, but China hasn't even entered the fray yet.

I believe Japan has not lost its influence as much as you might consider by "her" omission from your list.

More than anything though, national state boundaries are becoming less and less relevant to this kind of analysis. Regions and trading blocs are more important than states, and overspending on military will have had its day within a few decades when the current gangs of criminals are deposed by true leaders.

I looked at the topic DFD's way too before reading the first post.

The top superpower is the ability to eat planets. Galactus does it one way. Corrupt governments do it another way.
