This ranking system calculates nations' wealth and population amount into ratings making them more accurate than raw tournament results and other forms of rankings in estimating the true skill of a country. The reason for this is that the more population and wealth a nation has the easier it is for them to form successful national teams. note: alternative flags are often used purposefully!
WARNING: ALL TIME RANKINGS ARE ONLY GENERALLY ACCURATE AND SHOULD NOT BE USED TO JUDGE A NATION'S SKILL LEVEL WITHOUT EXPERT ANALYSIS. THE ALL TIME SECTION WILL SOON BE REPLACED WITH MORE ACCURATE DATA.
