Available Manpower by Country (2020)



Total available manpower by nation.



For the purposes of the GFP ranking, Available Manpower proves critical in any conflict, particularly drawn-out ones. The GFP formula observes inherently large populations (such as those belonging to China, India, and the United States) as theoretically offering the benefit of committing more 'souls to the fight' in the form of combat personnel, labor force, and the like. Data presented on this list is through 2020. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
