Total Available Manpower by Country (2023)



MILITARY | PERSONNEL

Ranking the total available military manpower by country, from highest to lowest.



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 2023. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
