I think Brazil would fall into this category instead:

Germany

Brazil
Japan
China
Thailand
Denmark
Sweden
Norway
Netherlands
South Korea
Switzerland

What? Brazil is more diverse than any of those countries you listed with it COMBINED. I met so many Brazilian people who are Asian, Black, White, Arab it's ridiculous.

Other than that, I wouldn't be surprised if the U.S. and Canada are one of the most ethnically diverse countries in the world as well, WITH Brazil.

While most small towns in the U.S. are predominantly white, there also many that are fairly diverse for their size.
Champaign is not a typical city for its size. It's culture is dominated by one of the nation's largest universities, which attracts students and faculty from all over the world.

Champaign's population is 13.8% Asian or Hispanic. By contrast, the far more typical percentages in Decatur are 2.5% and Peoria 7.4%.

Meanwhile, Chicago is almost exactly one-third each, White, Black, and Hispanic/Asian, which truly reflects diversity. If you want to use anecdotal examples, I think my argument is well supported by the 33% Hispanic/Asian in Chicago, and 2.5% Hispanic/Asian in Decatur.

Seems quite accurate. I guess a lot of Western European countries have this type of demographics, with some exceptions (in the Uk, South Asians would be the largest non-British group)

Trinidad Tobago and Suriname are worth mentioning too. They are mixture of East Indian, Black, Amerindian, Chinese, Indonesian and White people. That's probably more diverse than US or Canada regarding race.

Trinidad and Tobago does not have an lot of Amerindian and many of the Carribean islands dont have alot unlike much of Latin America.

I think one notable omission from these lists is South Africa which has about four-fifths non-homogenous black population and the last fifth divided among east indians, south asians, europeans, east asian, and mixes of all of these. South Africa is also diverse in hosting a multitude of recognized official languages.

In terms of racial diversity, Suriname is probably the most diverse place in the Caribbean/coastal South America. Trinidad has very few Amerindians (in the Caribbean only Dominica has any to speak of; the rest of the islands have some mixed Native people, but very few relatively) and no Indonesian pop.

I also wanted to say that Trinidad and Tobago...as far as I know, the East Indians aren't mixing at all...and they're 40%.

Fiji has a similar situation...about half East Indian and half Fiji-Fijians.

Not saying that they aren't diverse....but I think there was an implication that in Trinidad all the races mixed together...which might be true of the black with the indigeneous and whatever white was there. But the East Indians not much at all. At least, that's what I'd always heard anyways.

I always thought of Trinidad and Fiji being similar, but you see even fewer mixed Fijian-Indian people there than you do the African-Indian mixed people in Trinidad.

Largely true but not totally. I know several Trinis who are mixtures of Indian and Afro-Trinidadian and everything else that's on the island. Some Indians tried to stay within their own community, while others did like the rest of the Trinis and mixed with whomever they wished.

I was driving one day blasting Surinamese music from my car. I couldn't believe it when I actually looked to my right and saw some guy with a Surinamese flag flying from his mirror, enjoying the music. A once in a lifetime event...
