US overall. Japan for robots and computer stuff.

Oh and I'm SO GLAD this thread went Anti American on the first page.

according to this article "our 15-year-olds rank 17th in the world in science and 25th in math. We rank 12th among developed countries in college graduation (down from No. 1 for decades). We come in 79th in elementary-school enrollment. Our infrastructure is ranked 23rd in the world, well behind that of every other major advanced economy. American health numbers are stunning for a rich country: based on studies by the OECD and the World Health Organization, we're 27th in life expectancy, 18th in diabetes and first in obesity.
Only a few decades ago, the U.S. stood tall in such rankings. No more. There are some areas in which we are still clearly No. 1, but they're not ones we usually brag about. We have the most guns. We have the most crime among rich countries. And, of course, we have by far the largest amount of debt in the world."
Maybe the US can claim to be #1 in some areas by virtue of being a 1st world nation with a population of 314 million, but not for very many other reasons.
All the other chicks hate the prettiest girl because she gets the most attention. She is a "bitch" even if she really has a great personality and a "slut" even if she is still a virgin.
Overall the United States, but some other countries beat the US in certain fields.
When it comes to military, medicine, computer technology, automobile and airplane innovation, electronics, and of course the big one....Space technology, I would say the U.S. I would also include the Internet, but just because so many of the most popular websites are U.S created.
Edit: I love how so many Europeans are quickly turning this into America bashing. Stay classy folks.

Germany beer? I would argue GB and Ireland
Russia Vodka? I guess so
France for wine
Belgium for chocolate
USA in guns? I don't know anything about guns.
Sweden in health care? I don't know anything about health care.
Cars, Aeroplanes, Submarines (engineering)? UK
But i'm sure someone could have a valid point to counter argue any of my opinions just the same.

Anyway. The reality is that no one country in the developed world is anymore advanced than any other. Most of major firms have development campuses outside in multiple countries. Is a Microsoft product that is designed in Washington and developed in China an American product or a Chinese product? What about a Sony cell phone? The brand is Japanese but a lot of the brains are Swedish and the headquarters is in London. Is that an English product? Japanese? Swedish? Who knows. Even military hardware is developed cross nationally in some instances. The Eurofighter and the JSF are obvious examples. Stop trying to box the world into neat little compartments. That era is over.
I would say the US, loads of people so there is lots of talant and money, but then they are lacking in some areas to, their internet/4g infrastructure seems to be quite lackluster and they got shit public transport, thats just two examples that immediately pops up in my mind, I'm sure there are other things that could be made examples of, but I'm not an expert. The US is still my pick simply because they got a massive population, lots of capital and the combination leads to lots of talant and well financed science.
It does not mean the average american has access to more advanced technology though, from what I have gathered high speed internet coverage seems to be quite lacking in comparison with some other nations for example.
The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
Voted Japan, but USA is in top5 I think..Some of the countries in europe are really advanced also like Sweden or Finland etc.
What? The same China that has the largest CO2 emissions in the world, and gets 95% of its energy needs from non renewable sources?
Sure, they are making some improvements with regards to renewable energy sources, but they are nowhere near the most 'technologically advanced' in the area.
You can't really say that abo the US either, because the quality of life is much higher than say China or India, where people are treated like dogs

Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
We don't have incredible High Speed Internet because, well, that department is a solid monopoly here in America and we pay out the ass to get what is offered to us. Not much we can do about that. There have been many articles and studies that have shown the U.S. already has the technology and $$$ to create one of the fastest internet infrastructures the world has ever seen, but the monopolizing companies are obviously greedy and won't let that happen.
