Not really by country or players for recent data, but more by characters, language, and region...

Recent character populations Edit

According to as of December 2018 (numbers are rounded down):

  • US realms (including Brazil, Latin America, and Oceanic): 24 million characters
    • United States (includes Canada?): 20.9 million characters
    • Brazil: 800 thousand characters
    • Latin America (includes Mexico and Central America?): just under 700 thousand characters
    • Oceanic realms (includes Australia and New Zealand): 1.6 million characters
  • EU realms (including Russia): 22 million characters
    • English realms: 10.6 million characters
    • French realms: 2.3 million characters
    • German realms: 5.4 million characters
    • Italian realms: 200 thousand characters
    • Russian realms: 2.7 million characters
    • Spanish realms: 900 thousand characters

NOTE: Although this is data for character counts, one can use a rough estimate of 5 characters per player, so total WoW population is probably somewhere just under 10 million players.
