    I think it's Russia (and former Soviet Republics). The U.S. has many great chess players but a lot of them are 'imports' (immigrated from the chess-playing East Europian nations).

    Right now I'd say Russia is still the number one producer of chess talent. India and China are gaining ground fast, though. The United States isn't too far behind.

    Here's the legend regarding Dame's post: first column = rank; second = country; 3rd = average rating of top 10 players; 4th = number of GMs; 5th = number of IMs; and 6th = total number of titled players.
