Canada is up there.

Look at the contrast between Nunavut, and the south okanagan valley.

I think drro makes perfect sense here. Where's the logic in comparing two areas of vastly different sizes?

Venezuela is the size of Texas and Oklahoma and I bet has more diversity than the United States ranging from deserts, beaches, rain forest, jungles, snow capped mountains, plains, etc, etc.

Yeah, nope. There is no way Venezuela is more geographically diverse than the U.S., that is simply absurd.

Interesting topic. My top 10, almost in order:

- USA
- China
- Mexico
- India
- Argentina
- Canada
- Russia
- Peru
- Turkey
- Venezuela

US is definitely #1 for me. China is a close second, but doesn't have a Mediterranean climate and the tropical islands/beaches area mediocre compared to neighboring countries. Water can be muddy and polluted. US also has a nice variety of sand textures and colors. (Spare me the China pictures, I've lived there twice and travelled extensively ) China also doesn't have the southwest desert/monsoon climate or coastal coniferous tropical forests like the Pacific nouthwest. Where are the coastal deserts? All deserts inland/elevated. Also, entire landscapes of fall foliage is mainly limited to Japan, US, and Canada.

The extensive overpopulation has basically eliminated forests in eastern china, except for mountain areas that are extremely rocky. It's hard to find uninterrupted forest elsewhere.

Obviously the USA is an isolated country but it is definitely a diverse country geographically.
