I don't know if it's so clear-cut which kingdom is more powerful. Nyrond has the advantage of having been part of the Great Kingdom in the past, but a Great Kingdom long in decline. While Keoland has been tested by the giants in the west and seems to have come out of it stronger. Honestly, I'd call it a toss-up.
It wasn't Keoland, it was Furyondy. Nyrond has about 4 times the population as Furyondy, which is the primary reason why I'd say Nyrond. The Guide also mention the strength of Nyrond being the primary reason that the Great Kingdom isn't running rampant across the Flanaess. The Dragon Shape of the World articles also painted Nyrond as pretty tough. Not that Furyondy, or even Keoland, which has an even smaller population than Furyondy, aren't tough, I'd consider the quality of their armies pretty similar, but Nyrond gets it due to an overwhelming advantage in numbers.
