"Under its great ruler and military leader Nader Shah (1736-1747), Persia was arguably the world's most powerful empire"

How much is this true? Was Persia stronger than France for example?
None at all., Persian population about 9 million.

Gifted general, Well organised Armies,,Great record.

But in overall Size of Empire population/GDP or ability to project that power. No not the world;s most powerful empire. Not close.
