The country with the highest height average (and thus the most likely amount of tall people) is Holland, at an average of 6’1″. However, because this hasn’t really been researched, it would be difficult to find which country has the most people over 7′.
According to a list of the world’s tallest people who have had their height verified the United States has had 12 people recorded over 7ft 6inches. This is the most from any country listed with China coming in second with 7 people. It is hard to say exactly what country has the most over 7ft, but my guess would be China. While their average height is much shorter than European countries or even the US, they have so many more people, that in terms of absolute number, they probablly win. By this logic however, they probably also have the most people under 4.5 feet as well.
“Statistically, the tallest people in the world, as measured by country are the Dutch. The average height for all adults for the Netherlands is 6 feet 1 inch” http://www.wisegeek.com/which-country-has-the-tallest-people.htm
The country that was rated number one as having the tallest people is the Netherlands. They country has even had to make new building regulations to accommodate the increasing height of the people. The average height is 6 feet but they have even had records of 7ft.
