    Morroco:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Averroes
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Bajjah
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_al-Banna
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nur_ad-Din_al-Betrugi
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Tufail
    And a lot more (though out of those three Morroco is arguably the least important).
    We are discussing these countries' importance currently, not what they did a long time ago.
    If you are going to take into account all deeds done by every country, then no country can truly be seen as useless. Cambodia is currently useless, but taken into historic account it isnt due to the Khmer Empire, which had much influence over its surrounding neighbours.
    Mongolia is currently useless, but it was once home to the Ruler of all of Asia!!!

    To summarize, we are discussing the usefulness of countries' CURRENTLY, not in a broader historical sense.

    Besides if you are going on about historical importance, you should go after the people dizzing for example the Vatican and Malta. If it weren't for the Templars and the Maltese people succesful battle against the Ottoman Turks under Suleyman the Magnificent, Europe would have been attacked from yet another side (Valetta was built in the aftermatch to be impossible to conquer - it was funded by donations from Monarchs all over Europe). The Vatican held unquestionable power over Europe for centuries (IE the Crusades).

    So this makes no sense, Scotland are obviously much more useful to the world in general as part of the union, yet your going to slag us for it?

    Yes, I know. I was joking. There can't be a serious answer to that question. There is no such thing as a useless country.

    Now that I am thinking it again... there may be an answer that I haven't thought: Vatican (if you can consider it as a normal country)

    that chart doesn't make sense because loads of stuff was invented in the middle ages that hadn't been before.

    lenses, telescopes, glasses, printing, gunpowder, cannons, rifles, globe, anasthetics, compass, etc
