This should be answered as if to answer the question of "Which nations rely the most American support patronage partnerships trade military protection ext?" It also isn't asking about a gradual decline. If today every American person agency corporation were to simply disappear which nations would be the most affected by that why? Which industries abroad would be shaken up? Which governments would have to restructure for what reasons? Which international companies would be collapsed or prosper? Which organizations would evolve the most in the absence of the United States?<
(Not so much concerned if the geographical landmass were to disappear. Just the modern international elements of it.)

1. China would take Taiwan.
2. Japan would begin a massive military buildup to counter China and North Korea which could be worse than the US Cold War.
3. North Korea would invade South Korea and likely overrun it. At least causing widespread deaths and devastation
4. The tensions in Eastern Europe would flair up. Serbia might resume its post-Yugoslavia conflicts which NATO repeatedly intervened in previously.
5. Russia would likely claim more of Ukraine along with Estonia Latvia and Lithuania. Georgia would also be taken along with Central Asian states that were once apart of the USSR.
6. Israel would beef up its military and prepare for war
7. Iran might invade other middle eastern countries and rebuild its empire which is a real concern. Iraq had planned to invade Saudi Arabia before the US started the Gulf War. Iran might even break out in war with Saudi Arabia. (Middle East destabilizes quickly)
8. Pakistan and India might end up in war simply from the massive chaos
That is just an incomplete list of wars that might break out due to the US disappearing. This doesn’t include the starvation breakdown in the global economy and all the other disasters that would occur. Why would all of this happen? To answer that question you need to ask yourself what happened to Europe when Rome disappeared? Technology went backwards food was in short supply war broke out etc. This would be worse than Rome disappearing. The US is the central economy to the whole world. It drives food production global peace (its true don’t say it isn’t) innovation etc.
If the US instantly disappeared it would be an absolute mess. The US has certainly committed its fair share of atrocities during its reign but its hard to make an argument that the world is better off if we just disappeared. So what would happen? Chaos would happen and that might be putting it lightly.

Serbia would what!
Absolutely zero chances nope nope. What's that other thing you said about Europe? Russia would invade the Baltics…
You seem to be under the impression that the only NATO country with an army is the USA. The EU has nukes. And some of the most professional armies in the world. Finland on its own could probably resist a Russian invasion as they have in the past. Russia would attack the EU? For the Baltics? What?
This discredits pretty much everything else you said.

I actually think without the US China might have better relations with Japan and Taiwan. Japan would have to ingratiate itself to appease China -they couldn't risk pissing off China and China-Taiwan reunification would eventually happen without obstacles because Taiwan would have no security guarantor. China might be less aggressive and they would have no reason to assert their claim over SCS. Since the entire reason was to challenge the US’ “Pivot to Asia” and the first island chain. But the relations between China and Russia would be frozen because they don't have a common enemy. Russia is China’s natural enemy after all.

Why thank you My Lord for protecting this whole wide world. What would we do without Your Grace?
“Pakistan and India might end up in war simply from the massive chaos”. What absolute drivel. This is the most ridiculous condescending answer I have read in a while.

A lot of other countries now in conflict would no longer have an external player pushing it that way. The US is no the only one of course but is a major player in destabilizing other countries going back decades.

Actually weath inequality in the Roman empire was so unimaginably bad that many studies believe the average person had more food to eat after the fall of the Western Roman empire. As the Roman Republic grew the rich Senatorial elite increasingly used their position to take the best lands from Roman citizens and the best land from new conquests. This resulted in millions of essentially destitute Roman citizens almost entirely dependent upon government assistance.

That's all so wrong.
North Korea is not interested in destroying South Korea.
Russia has lost nothing in the Baltics. They don't even speak the same language. There is not even an economical incentive.
Israel would not beef up their military because the main donor of money and military stuff is now gone.
Iran is not interested in invading other countries. When in history have they dont that?
India Pakistan I doubt it.

A deeply pessimistic view of the world and a slight rose-tinted view of the role of the US in holding everything together. You make it sound as though countries all over the place are poised waiting to pounce on each other and it’s only the mere presence of the US that is preventing a total sh!tstorm. There are many around the World who would suggest the exact opposite is true!
And I would point out that genuine acts of geo-political aggression in the last few years (e.g. Syria Crimea) were done so despite protestations from the US and without any subsequent American intervention
The reality is there’s little incentive for the aggressors of the wars you’ve just outlined. Nobody in South Asia wants an Indian-Pakistan war. It’s a zero-sum game. Wars are costly in terms of economics and human life. Besides many of the wars you’ve outlined make very little geo-political sense. Why would Russia invade the Baltics?? Why would Serbia invade anyone??
In the absence of the US there would be an economic vacuum and a massive re balancing of trade and wealth.
It isn’t especially cogent to the question but Europe fell apart when the Christians took over and plunged Europe into the aptly named Dark Ages.

I doubt JPN would go through massive military buildup. Most of Japanese are allergic to anything military any sort of wars or any sort of preparation for wars. You might have wrong idea because present prime minister is extremely hawkish but most Japanese don’t want any sort of military conflicts. Beside there is no way JPN can match militarily against CHN so military buildup is absolutely meaningless and many Japanese know that.

You just cannot say you drive global peace. I just can’t agree. Go tell that to Iraqi people then… You’ve invaded and interfered in other countries’ affairs just lots and lots of times. You’ve been in hunt for oil since the 1980s. My country is broken its economy is broken and that’s thanks to the puppet you sent over here. You’re getting more and more warmongering as time passes and a large etcetera.
Canada would become an island. The land running from northern Mexico to southern Chile would become an island. Marsupials might make an eventual comeback in the new southern island. If Columbus had just waited 500+ years he could have sailed to India just by veering north a little. The Atlantic and Pacific would merge and change the international energy conveyor belt possibly expanding the northern icecap eventually driving Europeans onto the new north African prairie. Sea levels would go down possibly allowing the Europeans to walk to north Africa. Learning to swim would no longer be a requirement in Bangladesh.
China would take Taiwan before the US falls to ground.
Thank you USA for saving the world. Always.

And aliens would have to find another country to land their space craft
Although I do not deny US’s role in keeping the current balance of power this answer is emphasizing it too much. It should also be noted that the current balance itself has come after its previous chaos which did include blood-shedding by America.
Pakistan and India might end up in war simply from the massive chaos
The disappearance of the United States would definitely not affect whether they fight a war or not. That’s the reason us (American citizens) hear little about their conflicts because the US have shown favoritism towards both countries and if they support one side now they’re going to fight a full on world war 3.
Don’t think so? They are both growing economies over 5 times faster than US economic growth and have vastly large armies and well-trained militaries in Asia (Controversially Pakistan is the only Muslim nation to own nuclear weapons).

North Korea wouldn't be able to run over South Korea.
Logistics plus the fact that the South Korean military isn’t a joke (it's the 8th strongest in the world).
India and Pakistan isn't restricted by US in terms of going to war. I don't think US has much to do with the Kashmir issue.
Try Mexico would take over the United States and then sooner or later all of us would be speaking Spanish.
1) The price of gold would skyrocket and world markets would plummet
2) Nuclear war would be too devistating
3) The UN would be restructured with no country having veto power
4) Democracy although feeble at this time would move towards more autocratic rule in many countries
5) A prolonged Cold War would ensue
6) Russia and China would negotiate a truse
7) World debt restructured or forgiven
