Abstract
Although population is an important component of national power, the international rankings show some countries (e.g., USSR, USA, FGR, Canada) far higher in preceived power than in population, and some others (e.g., India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan) far lower. In the case of the first list, it is concluded that the population represents an asset that is being used effectively, and that additional population would add to the military and economic power of the state. But the countries on the second list are not employing the majority of their population in such a manner as to contribute to national power. For the larger members on this list, the population represents a burden.
