Ok, this is a difficult topic to approach due to...

1.  viewship bias  you only see a portion of their games and don't understand them fully.
2.  just because you can win doesn't mean that you are good... If I put you on the left side as fascists and I go on the right side as monarchy I would win approximately 99.99% of the time regardless of skill.  (That is unless the monarchy person has no idea how to play monarchy).
3. many of the "good" people are only good because of monarchy.  Monarchy is 3 inf/5sec... as much as centerfield.  Against people without proper pins, monarchy always wins especially in 1v1. 
4. which governments can they play?   They might be good with capitalists, but can they play with fascists?  Communists? Monarchy?
5. inherent lack of dispassion.  Are you a fair judge of yourself?  Some people think they are better they really are or are worse than they really are.

With that said and done... I would like to make a list:

1. MiamiBigAL (proper macro but lost computor.  Is God.)
2&3. zing/zachh (zing seems to be better at forge, but zachh is better at post.  Both are pretty good... and both destroy me)
4. Continuity (I hate him but he is a good player)
5. trying & Rummel (alright he doesn't play much anymore, but trying can play any gov... he plays commi a lot.  Even though he loses with commi usually, he is willing out to try new builds and knows a lot of good builds)
(Rummel doesn't play a lot, but has a wide scope, similar to trying.  His capi and commi are especially good, but he is one of the few players who can play all 4 govs well)
6. CaptainCorps (rusty, but his forge, capi, and mon used to be good)
7. Pillola & rappy123 & TerranGh0st  (Even though pillola cannot play fasci, his capi is pretty good and he can play mon well.   Rappy has a similar situation... can play mon and capi well. Terran is underappreciated; while he plays monarchy strongly his capi wars are probably better than mine.)
6. soccerdude2 & chessmaster102 & kilean (both socc and chess are good players in mon and capi.  tbh not sure if they play fasci or not) (Kilean has strong capi skills)
7. alpha2122 & hezdog (good players not much to say there)
8. Darktroop07 (plays fasci mostly, good with modikata rushes.  Not sure if he plays other govs)
9. dext2000, Crusader9999 (plays monarchy)

Note: This list isn't meant to offend, but state my true opinion.  I judge by not how much they win, but their usage of techniques and such.  Again, this is my opinion and may not be yours.

Note #2:  I find an inherent confict of interest in judging myself so I won't do it.

If you weren't mentioned, your technique either isn't that effective or does not pose a threat.  Or I might have forgotten, or I haven't seen them this year.

I have been forgotten.  Guess that makes sense; College, Occupation, and Starcraft; took me away.

I'm better than nearly everyone on royalguy's list. But then again, I don't know some of them because I haven't really played in so long.

3. many of the "good" people are only good because of monarchy.

^ This.

4. which governments can they play?

I think that could be expanded on with how well they can play 2v2. Being good at 1v1 and being good at 2v2 are not always the same thing.

I feel somewhat offended, but I won't say anything other than my pride has been hurt.
