Yes, there are some countries around the world in which a larger percentage of the population are vegetarian. In India, for example, about 40% of the population is “lacto-vegetarian” which means that they consume dairy products such as milk and cheese.
People in India do not eat beef. People in Japan do not have a lot of space to raise cows, chickens, and other farm animals. They eat a lot of fish, but not many other types of meat. People living in rural areas of poor countries tend to eat a lot of rice and starch plants like yucca and potatoes. They may have some chickens, but primarily use these for eggs. It is rare that they will kill a chicken to eat it or have a lot of meat for a meal.
Yes, and the US isn’t one of them. According to stats from the U.S. Census Bureau in 2009 and 2010 Canada and Japan were the countries who consumed the least amount of meat. For comparison purposes, in 2010 Canada consumed 999 metric tons of beef and veal whereas the United States consumed 12,040 metric tons (the most of any other country).
