For me that has to be Brazil... 5th largest country in the world and NOWHERE in the country I'd rate lower than a C climate... No hurricanes, few tornadoes and virtually the entire country can grow palm trees

I'll say it's the U.S. It has practically all the climates of the world in its 50 states. A large proportion of the country enjoys 4 seasons, making everyone happy at least at some times of the year.

Well, the US has the most variety, and has something to please almost everyone, but I prefer Estonia. The entire country has the same climate and it's all pretty much ideal to me.

As a warm lover I would like to go with Brazil, but I also like snowcapped mountains as I think they are beautiful. Tough call. Maybe India as they have huge snowcapped mountains along with lots of tropical territory.

Russia and Canada are far too cold.

Clearly the US has the broadest range of climates, but many of those climates are too cold for me so it's off the list.

China also has a wide range of climates but again some places are brutally cold.

Brazil is interesting, hadn't thought of it before. It's a close second. Could be higher if I knew more about it--though it could be lower too.

I vote for Australia. It has a wide range of climates and yet none of them are uncomfortably cold. So it's the luckiest.

I was also thinking Australia but then their mountains are really rather unimpressive for such a large continent.

Probably the US or China would the greatest range of climates. Argentina seems to fare quite well for range as well.

As for luckiest, I'm not really sure. Quite happy with NZ overall, but I really don't know what country I would choose for climate alone. Croatia seems like a good range, for a smaller country. Turkey and Italy seem good as well.
