    In terms of Culture, in the Spenglerian sense, Germany surpasses all other nations in terms of music, art (Italy may be greater than Germany in this respect, but Germany is still up there), philosophy, and spirituality.
    The Scandinavian lands have a more interesting history, though.

    I'll keep back with my opinion; I'm probably prejudiced here. : The discussion seems to flow anyway in the right direction. :icon_ques

    Great Britain, obviously. On a per capita basis, the Netherlands.

    Of course the weight of these considerations depend on the scope and definition of 'achievement', something there'll doubtless be no agreement on.

    Industry: yeah.
    Science: most great achievements were the product of Germans. The English had Newton and...--that's about it. Aside from Newton, Einstein, de Broglie, and Compton, all other great scientific discoveries were German.
    Literature: Shakespeare? I'll trump that with a Goethe.
