There are currently nine states that have successfully detonated nuclear weapons: the United States, Russia (successor state to the Soviet Union), the United Kingdom, France, and China, India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel. All these nations have both chemical and biological weapons. Only the United States has used nuclear bombs, both on Japan. North Korea has recently tested a crude nuclear bomb.
