    Mesopotamia is a region; today it is known as Iraq. In ancient times Mesopotamia consisted of what we would call states. Some of the best known Mesopotamian states were Sumer, Chaldea, Assyria, Babylonia.

    Mesopotamia is a region between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers where ancient civilizations like Babylon and Assyria arose.

    Because in addition to Mesopotamia, there were 3 other civilizations, the Egyptian, Indus Valley and Chinese, that arose in that general area at around the same time, so they each controlled a considerable portion of territory, but none could really be said to be a world power.

    Perhaps not on a global scale, but for its time Mesopotamian civilization most certainly was a “world power”.
