Take a country or group of countries (other than the U. S.) and speculate their possible performance as the leader in global events and influence.

I'm glad you provide "group of countries" as an option. But I would like to see a balance of power, which would still include the U.S. (and this is the likely scenario IMO).

How about what other prominent world powers have already done?

Rome - Conquered/annexed/enslaved most of Europe.
Spain - Annihilated multiple Mesoamerican and South American civilizations.
Portugal - Began the African slave trade.
Britain - Colonized half the world.

Prominent regional powers?

France - Colonial debacles in Indochina and Algeria.
Italy - Mechanized Italian army takes over Ethopia; Ethiopians defend themselves with spears.
Japan - Attempted to annex the entire Pacific Rim and all of China.
Soviet Union - Puppet regimes across eastern Europe and the caucasus terrorize their own people.

In retrospect, maybe we shouldn't have powers.
