Largest countries closer to the North Pole than the Equator

Name the top 10 countries with the most population living further North than 45°N (which means closer to the North Pole than the Equator)
For countries entirely situated North of the 45th parallel, the whole population is considered
For countries crossed by 45th parallel, only the population living North of this parallel is counted
You may be surprised by the absence of 1 country in particular. This is beacause in that country people mostly live further South
