Everywhere, but not by many. Since one year, I have a Twitter account where I post only in Esperanto. I have 338 followers, here is the data. I hope it can give some kind of idea.

United States 21%
France 10%
Brazil 8%
Spain 7%
United Kingdom 7%
Germany 6%
Japan 4%
Russia 3%
Hungary 3%
Sweden 3%

Nice to see this. Thanks. Is the missing percentage "unknown"?

I guess it is everything else and unknown. Twitter Analytics does not give more precise data about that.

Thanks. Interesting. I know nothing about Twitter. Too old and lazy to start up with it, I guess.

Your figures are very interesting. The positions of Brazil and Russia, especially. Brazil because it is so high on the list, and Russia because I saw a bunch of SF books, mostly Russian, for sale online last year, translated into Esperanto. I don't know Esperanto, but I sure was tempted--probably would have bought them too, "for the future," except I didn't see any payment method they'd accept that I could use. Just as well, as I still haven't begun learning Esperanto. :)

No where ... and everywhere.

There are no countries that have it as an official language no where will you find an area where lots of people use it. But there are Esperanto speakers all over the world.

The language was created by a guy named L. L. Zamenhof when he was quite young (college aged). He's got a very interesting story, which I recommend reading when you've got some spare time.
