This cool map created by University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s Kazimierz J. Zaniewski focuses on the level of linguistic diversity of every country. The index of linguistic diversity is a number ranging between 0 and 1, i.e. a country where many different languages are spoken will have an index closer to 1, while a country where very few different languages are spoken will have an index closer to 0.

Although it would be impossible for a country to obtain the index 1 (it would mean that every person in the country speaks a different language), Papua New Guinea is pretty close with an index of 0.99 and 820 different languages spoken.
