I think Great Britain stands alone at number 1. Without Britain and British culture there would be no United States to have the influence they have had for the past 60 odd years.

There is no way to tell i think. Any country can have a huge importance. The further you go back the more history would have changed if it wasn't for that country. Every country that existed between ancient times and the world wars (meaning 20th century with cold war) has helped to shape our modern world in a way. The world is of course still changing and the current wars also have influence.

I would agree with most of those countries, but I can't believe Mongolia and Uzbekistan have been missed.
