I would put the line of demarkation in a different place. Those nations that have technically compenent, respected advisors who can do math in decision making or decision influencing positions like nuclear energy. Several of them - Sweden, France, Russia, India, South Korea, China, Iran, the UAE, Saudi Arabia and others are keenly interested in building and operating nuclear power plants and taking advantage of their impressive energy output.
Those nations that are dominated by a love of money rather than a love of humans seem more interested in maximizing profits for their already wealthy members who have learned to prosper in a hydrocarbon-based economy. Those nations tend to have decision makers who think that laws and policies trump math and thermodyamics.
Some of the countries that can do math are not admirable and are also in the nuclear game for the benefits that it can bring to people at the very top, but at least they have not ignored the technical reality that fission is superior to combustion in a number of applications.
Sadly, at least one of the countries that recognizes the value of nuclear energy would prefer if only its friends used the technology, so it has invested time and money supporting movements that discourage nuclear energy by spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt.
