I think there was a bit of a misleading headline in the article I took this information from, as it said "which countries still have the death penalty?" and then listed those which had executions in 2011. So if we assume it is countries who actually carried it out, it is 18 or 20 as mentioned, and Japan is not on the list.

Rather than draw this out...the article goes on to say:

"Amnesty International say there are 18 countries worldwide which carried out known executions in 2011:

Afghanistan (2), Bangladesh (5+), Belarus (2), China (2000+), Egypt (1+), Iran (360+), Iraq (68+), Malaysia (1+), North Korea (30+), Saudi Arabia (82+), Somalia (6), South Sudan (5), Sudan (7+), Syria (1+), UAE (1), USA (43), Vietnam (1+), Yemen (41+)."

I think Hamlet got the most with 3 and therefore is up next (given that Stitchawl, whose go it really was, is away).
