My main take away from this is that the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc was mad into chess.

@Yamaneko Kasparov was indeed born in Baku, but he played for Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. If he is counted at all (he's not active anymore, after all), I think he is counted as a Russian.

It is a great game. It is similar to chess, but the pieces are carved out of a hard cheese. Fun, but messy if you have sweaty hands.

In Europe. But seriously, only countries with 3 or more players ranked. Carlsen might be the top player, but he's the only Norwegian in the top 100, so Norway doesn't meet the cut.

I was recently in St. Louis and got to visit the World Chess Hall of Fame. Not a big museum but it was fun to say I'd been there and they do have the world's biggest chess piece. It's actually made out of wood and is quite well-varnished and beautiful as an outdoor art object.

I don't know anything about big shot chess players so my first guess was China. Can't go wrong with that.
