States marked 'TC' are widely considered technologically capable of wielding, operating or developing nuclear weapons, however are signatories of the NPT and are not known to possess any at the current moment. Japan, South Korea, Poland, and Taiwan are generally considered de facto nuclear states due to their believed ability to wield nuclear weapons within 1 to 3 years. [76][77][78][79][dead link]
