Default If you could be one super power...

...which would you be? I'd have to say Great Britain, just because it's awesome. (By be, I mean either control the super power, or if you prefer, physically be it)

Define superpower. The way I have heard and use the term refers to a country with widespread hegemonic power and/or neoliberal power. (depending on your definition neoliberal power may be considered hegemonic) To me this indicate pre-cold war the USSR and the USA were superpowers and post cold war, only the US, with China possibly emerging as one.

Temporal displacement is not set, you can include any army that was of substantial size to be considered super powerful at their time. For instance, the Roman empire.

I would take the Mongol Empire(pre-collapse) if I could modernize it a bit.
Otherwise I'd take the USA. And then I'd conquer the world, assuming I get absolute power.

The Roman Empire. Powerful military, great culture, and I love Italy.

I'd have to be the Vajra, from Macross Frontier.

But if fictional superpowers aren't allowed, then I'd have to say the United States.
