  • Defense Spending by Country


    Going to war is never a decision to be taken lightly, especially when considering the overall cost of such ventures.

    The Defense Spending Budget value indicates funds allotted to the maintenance and strengthening of a standing military. Not all included nations have the luxury of a large spending budget and therefore must rely on affiliations and regional alliances to maintain a capable fighting force.


    The data presented below is through 2017. Values presented in $USD.
