    Without a doubt--Antarctica which has yielded over 19,000 meteorites.However each rock recovered down there receives an individual number.
    Next closest numerically is U.S.A with over 1400.

    However,if we were working on sheer volume or weight it may very well be Africa,specifically Northwest Africa where many thousands of tons have been recovered from the deserts.
