– # of scientists per year (for various countries)

– % of Soviet GDP directed towards science

for individual countries in time periods like WWII:

– % of GDP available to foreign occupier (an interesting question although highly variable – depends on leniency of surrender conditions and presence/absence of individual events that may trigger widespread resentment)

– % of population willing to fight/be drafted in war of foreign occupier

– political orientations of subnational entities (for example, are territories that border a potentially hostile nation more conservative? [inasmuch as conservatism is associated with pro-military/pro-security policies]
