The U.S. and Japan have $4.8 trillion and $2.2 trillion in maturing government debt in 2017, respectively. Both bills are significantly higher than what is due (so far) in 2018 and 2019. In contrast, debt due for the governments of Germany and the U.K. in 2017 are more in line with the principal they will owe in 2018 and 2019.

The majority of U.S. Treasury debt due is from short-term instruments with less than six-year terms, while the other major sovereign issuers have a higher amounts of longer-term debt due.
