    Depends on how you quantify "greatness and "prosperity". If its monetary gains then yes, US is the most prosperous country in the world.

    $14.44 trillion (2008 est.)

    I would disagree on the greatness part. America is certainly a great nation. But it has its vices and skeletons in the closets.

    If you say no to any of the questions then it follows that you have to name a country which ranks above the US.

    They must be the best in sports too I guess since when you win baseball, "football", hockey, basketball in the states you are crowned WORLD champions.

    In Technology and innovation no one comes close. Sports? Well they win the most medals at the olympics but one can make the point that they lack eliteness in the truly worldwide sports of soccer and cricket. One area where other countries don't come close is in culture and cultural influence which is huge. Yeah many of the people are arrogant and clueless and 100 years from now things might be different but right now the US is the greatest country in the world by most measures.
