I agree. In variety, USA. In uniqueness, China by a wide margin.

and Russia also

Simply because it has such a large landmass, yes, it is one of the most diverse. But other huge countries rank up there such as China, Brazil, Argentina and even some somewhat smaller countries like Turkey, Iran and Colombia. Despite large landmass, however, Russia and Canada are not nearly as diverse as the aforementioned countries.

Was that really necessary?

In any case, India and China don't have tundra; the US does, via Alaska.
Only because of Alaska. Far northern china is sub arctic. China is as large as the US including Alaska and stretches from 54 to 19 degrees latitude. One could consider parts of the tibetan plateau tundra. China also boasts the Himalayas among other towering mountain ranges.

Brazil isn't the diverse for its size. Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Argentina are the most diverse in South America.

Well, the USA also have all the west-side climates and environments, including the very oceanic coast, forests of the Pacific Northwest and hot deserts of the Southwest.

China has the subtropical montane forests east of the Himalayas, though.

I've come across with this page ARGENTINA | Todos los paisajes del mundo en un solo país | Todos os paisagens do mundo em um país - Page 19 - SkyscraperCity and I highly recommend everyone to visit. It's a thread about landscapes of Argentina, it has lots of photos of many different places of the country, showing its huge variety.

The link goes to the 19th page of the thread, I guess the best shots come from there on.

I started watching them as a search of some particular geographic spots but I ended up enjoying the shots of many wonderful landscapes, some of them I didn't know they existed.
