Bundesrepublik Deutschland (Federal Republic of Germany)
United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Cinquième République de la France (Fifth Republic of France)
Whats the criteria of the poll? Military might? Economic? Political?
Just looking through posts, the majority of the decisions seem to be one of those three main ideas...anyone care to clear it up for me?
Thanks in advance.

I am quite happy to be corrected if this wrong, but that is what I understand.
...and they all migrated from further East, hence the name "Caucasian", I think.
as far as wiki goes (which isn't always much)

Epic, GET THE **** OFF OF MY THREAD! You asked if anyone was offended by your portrayal of the Reichskriegsflagge. The answer is yes, I was. I am ethnically, culturally, and by blood and citizenship a German. The Schwarz-Rot-Gold hangs in every corner of my room. Your talk of "Deutschland, Deutschland über alles" deeply offends me. People like you are nothing but dirt who are a disgrace to the Fatherland. Embrace "Einigkeit und Recht und Freiheit." That is Germany.
Lang lebe der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

What is the most powerful nation in Europe? How adorable. I've got one....What is the most powerful tribe in Africa? Anyone? Anyone? But back to Europe...
Maybe German power should not be celebrated so much. We've seen what Germans are capable of when they have power....twice. We'd be fools to ever trust them completely with any real power. France? Their determination to prove themselves independant from the U.S. by any means necessary since they were bailed out in 1945 has infected the EU. Maybe this shouldn't be celebrated so much either. Ahhh, the U.K. The British Empire is historical and their military today works best with the U.S. military. They remain independant from the EU, which means that as the EU nations struggle with their united economies and their identities, the U.K. stands the greatest chance to emerge out of the struggle faster. And since they remain loyal friends to the U.S., they continue to borrow from that power.
This notion that somebody in continental Europe is the most powerful is pointless. What can they do with it? Only the U.K. has enough power to reach out and make a difference. And this very much relates to who they pass the time with. In fact, the three nations that bleed the most for each other has been Canada, the U.K., and the U.S. Not the others who have bled because of each other. A powerful France? A powerful Germany? I don't see it.

I voted Germany without even looking at the OP. I learned in history classes in my schooling that Germany has essentially the most productive and most stable economy as well, despite England's image as a powerful country by Americans.
I could be wrong though.

"Prior to their defeat at the hands of the British, the Ashanti (who are a matrilineal society) developed into one of the most powerful African kingdoms."
