Britain, France, America, Russia. They all have intercontinental distances (defined as 5,500 km or more) between 2 places on their lands. Britain for example between Falkland Islands and Scotland. France for example between French Guiana and Paris. America for example between Guam and Puerto Rico. Russia for example between Moscow and Vladivostok. These 4 are 4 of the 5 permanent members of the UNSC. The other one being China.

I tried on Google Earth. It comes to about 5,000 km. Less than intercontinental distance.

This is a pretty asinine and ridiculous conclusion.

China is unquestioningly more powerful than the UK or France. Germany is definitely more powerful than France.

I would even say Australia and Canada are more powerful than France.

France has Rafale. Better than any plane China has. France has jet engine. China has no jet engine. France is more powerful than China. Better warships. Betters subs. Better tanks.

Germany is not a permanent member of the UNSC. Germany is not as powerful as France.

I guess we'll just have to disagree.

Three observations;
China should come higher up the list than fifth, making the other four not the top four.
The distance between Moscow and Vladivostok is not genuinely straddling two continents. The distinction between Europe and Asia is cultural, not geographical (these were originally the names of the opposite shores of the Aegean Sea).
You recognise, I trust, that these distances are one of the results of their power, not one of the causes. In effect, you are announcing that big countries tend to be big.

Causality? Correlation?

Not trying to an a**, just trying to flesh this out a little bit.
