Perhaps the Netherlands by capita. Netherlands lays -10 meter under the sea-level. Almost every neighborhood in the Dutch cities has (cycling)bridges.

But define bridges?

The Dutch farming-land is surrounded by irrigation-canals with a lot of small bridges.

Philippines could be second/third with 7,107 islands and more than 92million people, but Indonesia still has the most bridges....

wait, does pedestrian overpass bridges counts?

Probably China. But Denmark has a lot of bridges, especially if you count the number of km of bridges per capita.

There are about 22.700 bridges on Norwegian public roads + a unidentifiable numbers on various private roads. I do not believe pedestrian, train and other types of bridges are included in this number.

According to a crappy survey from VROM, the Netherlands have at least 40,000 bridges and viaducts longer than 5 meters.

The number of islands don't seem to matter as much as the number of bodies of water. It's not like we have bridges linking islands to islands nor are there many bodies of water in our islands. Same with Indonesia. Our infrastructure can't keep up and let alone put us in the top 3.

http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bridge/nbi/county09.cfm
^ That site gives data of the number of bridges in each of the 50 states of the United States with majority having over 10,000-20,000 bridges alone.

I would say as many medieval bridges, or bridges over a thousand years of existence it is Spain (in direct competition with France and Italy) ...

Most of bridges in Europe and more bridges than the States, but not most bridges of the world. Unfortunately they didnt mention which country has most, but I would also bet on China.

It must be the United States with over 500,000 bridges. I doubt any other country comes even closer. Probably china in the future.
