comment Why did the Soviet Union close its borders and restrict travel abroad?
A US security clearance also requires the holder to report any contact with foreign persons, and (at least back in the 90's) restricts travel to Communist countries.

comment Why do more historians state Rome was a superpower, than Persia?
I once saw a comparison once between the one government Rome represented and the number of governments that same area "requires" now. It was pretty sobering. (This was back in the 80's, so it would actually be a bit larger now).

@Semaphore - 800 years isn't long enough for you? The Roman Empire only lasted about 500 years before the west fell.

This is a surprisingly difficult question to answer. In fact, it turns out that the definition of a day isn't even a simple matter.
