I'm tempted to say the United States just out of pure patriotism.

But I'll go with the US because its establishment as the first full constituational democracy. One of the most enlightened political systems of all time.

I'm gonna say the US out of patriotism and because it was the first political democracy and such as the gentleman above stated. Doesn't mean I think we're better than Canada, Europe, Japan, etc. I just love the West and the ideals of freedom and that have come to be associated with it. I'd rather not say any Western nation's better than any other, but I'll say the US since I live here and love my land

America has such a hold on the world right now that its tough to ignore it as the best of all time. Although you could argue with classics like Alexander the Great's Empire, or China during the Middle Ages and before.

Canada is good but we don't have enough power and wealth.

I'm going for the Roman Empire before Christianity corrode it. Also The British Empire before the WWI

Under what basis? I do not consider size and ability to conquer "greatness". But that is only my opinion, of course.
