Looks like the .de ccTLD is the top global ccTLD again after .cn registrations fell. The latest figures for .cn domains are:
.cn ccTLD Registrations:
December 2009: 13,459,133
January 2010: 12,280,081
February 2010: 9,535,120

There was a low cost .cn domain offer running around the time of the 2008 Olympics which could have contributed to the fall in .cn figures but the change in .cn regulations introduced late last year may also have had an effect on renewals. That's approximately a 3.92 Million domain loss since December 2009.

Maybe the effect of the .cn spam emails sent out by Hong Kong registrars is starting to wear off :)

Here's an earlier thread: CNNIC cracking down on .cn domains [webmasterworld.com]

Registration of .cn domains now requires registration documentation that most non-Chinese registrars are not equipped to process.

Give up. Cn domain name it, due to policy uncertainty, most Chinese owners do not use it.
