Egypt, South Africa and Kenya are currently the most powerful country in Africa, according to US News and World Report.

The US News and World Report “Most Powerful Countries” ranking lists 73 countries that “consistently dominate news headlines, preoccupy policymakers, and shape global economic patterns.”

The rankings are based on a survey that gathered opinions of more than 20,000 people from 73 countries, conducted in partnership with BAV Group and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

The index focuses on five main axes, namely military strength, the strength of international alliances, economic influence, political influence, and leadership.

According to the rankings, Egypt is the most powerful country in Africa, followed by South Africa and Kenya.

Morocco is the most powerful country in the Maghreb, coming in ahead of Tunisia which appears on the 61st position. Algeria, Libya, and Mauritania were excluded from the 73-countries list.

Ghana is the most powerful country in the west African region. Nigeria was excluded from the list.

Continentally, Egypt is the most powerful country in Africa, 55th in the world, South Africa (32nd), Kenya (52nd), Ghana (55th), Morocco (57th) and Tunisia (61st).

On the global ladder, the United States ranked first, followed by Russia, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and Japan.

The power ranking is a component of the constantly-updated US News and World Report “Best Countries” ranking.
