I am in. I want Canada. Our peaceful, non-assuming neighbors to the North seem like the perfect role to play.
My first move would have already been made. Basically, if I am Machiavelli and I want to gather as much power as possible FOR CANADA, then the stage is set perfectly. Of course while everyone is looking at the US, Israel and Iran as the potential assassin of the nuclear scientist, I know of course it was the newly formed Canadian Special Operations Force Command.
Isn't obvious? There is little doubt that the United States is far and away the most sophisticated military force on the planet. In a conventional war, without the necessity of winning "hearts and minds", the US military can bring an unbelievable amount of fire power down upon any region on the planet. They do have one major achilles heel.
If the Middle East became glass tomorrow, the US would still need a literal sh*t ton before they could transform their economy to alternative sources. Remember Canada is number 3 in oil reserves. Who better to supply the mighty US with their badly needed oil when the SHTF then the nice neighbor to the north? Of course we will need to be compensated.
Even in the event that things get "out of hand" and thermonuclear weapons are pulled, we are strategically located to not suffer much from fall out damage. We also will be well positioned to capitalize upon the suddenly crippled Big Brother to our south.

Split Infinity; while your statements of what you seem to have fantastic knowledge of are presented as fact from you, we're not here to argue what is fact or fiction.
We're here to debate how you, as any nation you pick, would take advantage, manipulate, respond to, plot and plan for and/or against the current political climate as it applies to a possible WWIII, and as it applies to how you currently see/interpret current events.
If you want to take the position of being the 4th Reich sitting pretty in moon and Mars bases with a fleet of UFOs, laughing at all the silly people still stuck on Earth, have at it.
What would you do, based from any chosen position, using current real events cited by MSM or Alt news (as you interpret them, if need be), to bring your chosen side out on top should a WWIII happen as a result of the current geopolitical climate?
