If you've been feeling depressed about the state of things in America and need to restore your faith in the USA, look no further than the Nobel Prize.

The annual award, bestowed by Swedish and Norwegian committees to honor the legacy of inventor Alfred Nobel is dominated by the Americans. 

Focused on the fine arts, hard sciences, and world-changing ideas, the Nobel Prize is an intellectual and inspirational Olympics, of sorts — at least for the Western world. The winningest nations are all North American or European, including the U.S. (344 total awards ... U-S-A! U-S-A!), Britain (119), and Germany (104). But geo-political powers outside of the West don't rake in the same prize haul. Russia has only 27 Nobels, while China has a paltry nine.


Here's the breakdown of the winningest Nobel Prize countries.
