Total Available Manpower Fit for Military Service by Country


Because having the most people matters not in a business where participants must be fit to fight.

Wars ultimately come down to manpower and, from this, the portion of the population that is actually able to assist in the war effort (able-bodied souls for fighting, production, etc...). Manpower Fit for Military Service is used by the GFP final ranking to further refine a nation's overall military strength.
