Our own state, SC, comes in at number 30.

The image below shows what happens when the world’s countries are resized according to their population of amateur radio operators. Japan, whose amateur radio population is the largest of any country and roughly double that of second-place USA, dominates the resized map. Of course, there are two countries that do not appear at all on the resized map: North Korea and Yemen, which do not allow their citizens to operate amateur radio equipment.
