Hi dear ones !!

whats a superpower nation …………..                   

A superpower is a state with a leading position in the international system and the ability to influence events and its own interests and project power on a worldwide scale to protect those interests; it is traditionally considered to be one step higher than a great power.

There have been attempts to apply the term superpower retrospectively, and sometimes very loosely, to a variety of past entities such as 

Ancient Hindu or Bharat( Indian Sub-continent), Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, China, the Persian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Roman Empire, the Mongol Empire, Portuguese Empire, the Spanish Empire, France, the Dutch Republic and the British Empire.

Potential Superpowers

Academics and other qualified commentators sometimes identify potential superpowers thought to have a strong likelihood of being recognized as superpowers in the 21st century.    

Due to their large markets, growing military strength, and economic potential and influence in international affairs, the Federative Republic of Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, the European Union, the Republic of India, and the Russian Federation, are among the powers which are most often cited as having the ability to influence future world politics and reach the status of superpower in the 21st century.


The notion of a “superpower” is increasingly anachronistic in the 21st century as increased global integration and interdependence makes the projection of a superpower hard but not impossible.
