World Leaders Ranked By Strength

Geo-politics are complicated. Whatever happened to the good old days when bands of tribal humans settled their differences with a show of strength? Well here's what the landscape of world power would look like if we still did things the old fashioned way.

7. Tibet

In a world based on physical strength, Tibet is not only its own country, but it's a super power. I mean come on, look at the Dalai Lama he's built! Those triceps. Damn.

6. Germany

Germany doesn't make women like Angela Merkel anymore. It's that East German toughness, you know? Merkel is definitely stronger than she looks, and could totally beat you in arm wrestling. Plus she knows how to slice your meat just right. (Can't get that image out of your head, now, can you?)

5. North Korea

I know it's crazy to think of North Korea as a world power, but just look at Kim Jong-un. Put him in a wrestling ring with most any other world leader, except the ones on this list, and it's no contest.

4. Estonia

They say never mess with a dude wearing glasses who is also passionate about spirit fingers. Estonian President Toomas Hendrik is that man.

3. Mexico

Mexico's president Enrique Peña Nieto might not look like much, but he's younger than a lot of the leaders on this list, and he's scrappy (we think). Anyone who wears a sash everywhere has got to be, right?

2. United States

Barack may be tall, but when it comes to physical strength there's no doubt Michelle has him beat. I mean look at her, she's built. She probably just hangs out at the White House gym all day and spots Joe Biden.

1. Russia

If world order was based on physical strength Russia would be top dog. Just look at their rugged leader Vladimir Putin. Those pecks.... that horse... goddamn.
