According to Verisign’s domain name industry brief, TLD registrations hit 280 million in the second quarter of 2014.

Note that the .TK ccTLD is technically a country code but is marketed as a generic TLD, and quite successfully it seems. So Germany is effectively the leading ccTLD.
Interesting data points:

- The top 10 ccTLDs comprise 66.3% of all ccTLD registrations
- The new wave of generic TLDs haven’t made much of impact yet in terms of registrations
