October, 2009 via Reuters:

“The United States is the most admired country globally thanks largely to the star power of President Barack Obama and his administration”

It climbed from seventh place last year, ahead of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan which completed the top five nations in the Nation Brand Index (NBI).

"What's really remarkable is that in all my years studying national reputation, I have never seen any country experience such a dramatic change in its standing as we see for the United States for 2009," said Simon Anholt, the founder of NBI, which measured the global image of 50 countries each year. [...] "There is no other explanation," Anholt said in an interview, referring to the impact of Obama.

1. And where do we stand now?

In 2018 we'd fallen to 6th place. Wonder what 2019 will bring?

FutureBrand Country Index 2019 results

The FutureBrand Country Index published for the first time since 2014 charts the global perception of 75 different countries, ranking them according to a nation's "brand" power. A country's "purpose" and "experience" are among a number of factors taken into account, as well as tourism potential, heritage and culture and quality of life.

Japan held on to top spot, while Norway climbed four places to second with Switzerland slipping from second to third. Scandinavian nations Sweden and Finland completed the top five.

For the US and UK, the research highlighted their descents as the products of increasingly divisive politics. "They are among the most advanced, democratic and diverse countries in the world, but when it comes to brand strength and attractiveness to visitors and investors alike, their popularity continues to take a nosedive," the report read.

1 Japan
2 Norway
3 Switzerland
4 Sweden
5 Finland
6 Germany
7 Denmark
8 Canada
9 Austria
10 Luxembourg
