    2. 2.  We are living in the time of big challenges and opportunities. The world as the whole of human civilization, as the socio- economic-political system of humanity, with its global ecological system, is rapidly changing. It’s becoming smaller, more unstable, and more endangered. Everything is fluid and fraught with volatility and uncertainty, the global climate, population, economy, politics, ecology, religion, networks, states and cities, thus the whole world future.  Comprising 195 independent sovereign states, 60 dependent areas and five disputed territories, the world is going through the lasting global crisis, when decisive changes are impending, when the whole world system is looking for a radical transformation in all the key spheres, sectors, parts and systems.  The present world is a world of unsustainable growth, extreme inequality, overwhelming poverty, ill-gotten wealth. Its wealth is idiosyncratically distributed between the few richest haves and the poor have-nots, with almost half going to the richest one percent and the other half to the remaining 99 percent, creating huge disparities in wealth and income, power and rights.  In 2013, the total global wealth amounted to $240.8 trillion. Share of wealth for the bottom half of the population was 0.71 percent, while the richest one percent had 46 percent (amounting to $110 trillion).  The world's 85 wealthiest were worth a collective $1.7 trillion, while the same amount was owned by half of the world's poorest people, a total of roughly 3.5 billion.  Such extreme inequality has been ‘impacting social stability within countries and threatening security on a global scale’, according to the World Economic Forum. It poses a major risk to human progress, to building inclusive political and economic systems increasing social tensions and the risk of social unrest and societal breakdown.  The Smart State Strategy is emerging in the quest for sustainable growth and smart economic, technological and socio-cultural development and intelligent governance for international communities and states, regions and cities, and global virtual communities, as well as for enterprises, industries and economies, local, regional and global.  Smart Nations are Intelligent Nations, Eco Regions and Smart Districts, Intelligent Cities and Green Communities, Smart People and Smart Life, Sustainable Land and Environment, Sustainable Infrastructure and Smart Industry, Smart Grids and Eco Buildings, Intelligent ICT and Eco Mobility, Big Science and Future Technology, Internet of Everything and Smart Web, Smart Financing and Intelligent Banking, Smart Health and Education, Smart Security and Safety, Smart Government, Regulations and Standards.  Great Smart States, or Superpowers, are to became the engine and key driver of an instrumented, interconnected, intelligent , inclusive and innovative world of the future, 5i-World. ;   http:// SMART SUPERPOWERS GLOBAL INITIATIVE © 2014-2015-2016 Azamat Abdoullaev
    3. 3.  “superpower stature is to be measured along four axes of power: military, economic, political, and cultural”  "a state power which is able to conduct a global strategy including the possibility of destroying the world; to command vast economic potential and influence; and to present a universal ideology“  “a state power which is be able to project its power, soft and hard, globally“  “a state power with a dominant position in international relations, capable to exert influence or project power on a global scale via military and economic strength, as well as diplomatic and soft power influence”  “a political community with a continental-sized landmass, and relatively a sizable population; a superordinate economic capacity, with ample indigenous supplies of food and natural resources; non-dependent on international intercourse; with a reliable nuclear capacity with a second strike capability”  "a state power with the capacity to project dominating power and influence anywhere in the world, and reaching the status of global hegemony.“  “a state or a socio-political and economic entity that is in the process of becoming a superpower during the 21st century” SMART SUPERPOWERS GLOBAL INITIATIVE © 2014-2015-2016 Azamat Abdoullaev
