If you could choose an nation you think had more potential and power to last as an superpower until this day. I will try to counter argue this.

Interesting topic. I am tempted to argue that the Norway, Denmark and Sweden, the home of the Vikings, had the potential to become the world superpower: after all, they were the first colonists of North America: Greenland is technically part of North America and there is also strong evidence that the Viking 'Vinland' was actually Newfoundland.

In actual fact, because the Vikings invaded Northern England, Ireland and Scotland directly and Southern England indirectly via the Norman Conquest, it can be argued that the first Americans were direct decedents of the Vikings and without the Vikings Amercia would never have become a superpower.
