Five years ago, the US and UK used to top the list of the nations whose passports didn't need visas in the widest list of nations. Now, we are tied for sixth place (at least until Brexit) and Singapore/Japan are the champs.

Henley Passport Index, which periodically measures the access each country's travel document affords.
Singapore and Japan's passports have topped the rankings thanks to both documents offering access to 190 countries each.
South Korea rubs shoulders with Finland and Germany in second place, with citizens of all three countries able to access 188 jurisdictions around the world without a prior visa.

The European countries of Denmark, Italy and Luxembourg hold third place in the index, with visa-free/visa-on-arrival access to 187 countries, while France, Spain and Sweden are in the fourth slot, with a score of 186.

Since it's frequently a function of reciprocity, it demonstrates our xenophobia to a certain extent.
