They say that the Industrial Revolution started in Europe and has showed no signs of stopping since. Indeed, the world has moved forward to progress and prosperity at a glacial pace, as civilizations continue to mature and manifest their dynamism as time goes by. Along with industrialization comes many other forms of progress – educational progress, technological advancement, accumulation of wealth, advancement in health care and living standards, and many more.
As far as leaders are concerned, these presently are the 10 most industrialized nations in the world. These countries have led everybody else in terms of advancement and national prosperity. Is your country on the list? You are now about to find out.
Korea started as a nation that was brutally devastated and bitterly divided by conflicting ideologies that caused a bloody civil war. This has resulted to a division between the north and the south – 2 Koreas living tensely in one small peninsula. Fast forward after 40 years and South Korea has become one of the most advanced nations in the world. It is a technology, shipbuilding, and applied science powerhouse.
The large nation of Australia has been gifted with a large land area and a wealth of natural resources. These resources became the secret of Australia’s initial success in agriculture and mining – its two important catalysts for industrialization. Today, Australia is one of the world’s most prosperous nations, and life there is deemed advanced with excellent social services and an educated populace.
Canada is the second largest nation in the world when it comes to total land area. It also has plenty of natural resources and a diverse citizenry. Canada has modern facilities and its cities are some of the most orderly and efficient in the world. This country also basically exports just about anything and has opened its doors aggressively to foreign immigration.
This country, formerly known as Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or USSR, dissolved into separate nation-states in 1991. However, the largest country to come out intact is Russia, retaining 70% of the USSR’s original territory. The nation has a monopoly of technology – especially when it comes to nuclear science and engineering. It also has a large export market.
Recent years have not been good to Italy as the country’s growth has remained flat – even in the negative – for quite some time now. That being said, it is still undeniable that Italy has some of the world’s largest and most prominent industries. Italian cuisine, fashion, perfume, media arts, and car manufacturing industries are some of the biggest and most luxurious anywhere in the world.
France is one of the world’s largest and most influential global economies. France is the center of many things Frenchy – from high cuisine to a luxurious and ubiquitous wine industry, a prominent national cinema and media industry, and prominent technology-based industries.
This small nation-archipelago off the English channel and detached from continental Europe is actually the birthplace of the so-called Industrial Revolution. It is the center of the English-speaking world and has industries and companies that have a global presence.
Germany is Europe’s largest economy – thanks largely to the country’s gigantic industries in car manufacturing, aircraft manufacturing, and other large-scale industries. Germany is a prime world exporter and its brands are known everywhere in the world.
Despite the surge of China, Japan retains its title as the most industrialized nation in Asia. The Japanese are known to be very efficient and disciplined people, and this is seen everywhere in the country. As a matter of fact, Japanese brands are always equated with excellence.
