Norway leads the way..

The poll, answered by 4,000 Norwegians, showed that outright atheists—who simply do not believe in God—now number 39% of the population, compared to 37% of believers, and a remaining 23% saying they do not know. Source:

The Norwegian Humanist Association (HEF) is one of the largest secular humanist associations in the world, with 84,300 members. Those members constitute 1.7% of the national population of 5,038,100, making the HEF by far the largest such association in the world in proportion to population.

CE2005.. "a list of the top fifty countries containing the largest measured percentage of people
who identify as atheist, agnostic, or non-believer in God. These figures do not necessarily
represent the number of people who are identify themselves as "atheists." For example, in
Estonia in 2004, 49% of people surveyed said they did not believe in God. At the same time,
only 11% of people in the country identified themselves as atheists"...
