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”.
