however Japan having such power would probably cause many angry nations such as mine.
Indeed. No way China would accept Japan as a member of the UNSC. Apparently, China is ready to support India's bid for a permanent seat on United Nations Security Council if India did not associate its bid with Japan.

That said, the support of UNSC P5 member states isn't the only problem. Whether it is Brazil, Germany, India or Japan, or anyone else, the Coffee Club is also another problem... Some of them exert great influence in the UN and are definitely able to convince at least one of the P5 to block the proposal.

I wouldn't be opposed to South Africa per se but they're not really a major player. Even Austria can pull more weight.

If Egypt wasn't so f- up, I'd they at least have some projection capability thanks to the French Mistrals... bought by the Saudis. But even then...

I could see India over Brazil becoming the 6th UNSC (so long as they withdrew from the G4 at the same time)

It's the UN, luv. It isn't supposed to make sense by design.

Although Brazil is very American with how many people are shot I don’t think they would make a good fill in. If the crime and supposed corruption was minimized certainly.

India faces the problem China and its own corruption despite having a massive population and potential it’s growing into.

South Korea seems capable by and large but it’s weighed down by China, North Korea and its own smaller population.

Japan has potential as well but suffers its own laws prohibiting the use of military force aside from invading Gate.

As for others, it’s a toss up.
