Are the Ottomans objectively the most powerful country ever? England was definitely stronger in their time but that has been 200 years max. The Ottomans were the premier power in the world for around 1000 years.

Would be China but they were autistic as a nation basically, so they don't really count as they weren't really a threat to anyone.

and sailing innovations

Most powerful country in history was france.

I can't really think of another country that managed to take on all of europe and win on several different occasions.
