Well, at least according to the Geofabrik download site for Asia:
http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/asia/

Ranking by compressed OSM XML file:
1. Japan - 720 MB
2. China - 69 MB
3. India - 54 MB
4. Philippines - 34 MB
5. Israel/Palestine - 23 MB

Ranking by binary OSM PBF file:
1. Japan - 496 MB
2. China - 41 MB
3. India - 31 MB
4. Philippines - 22 MB
5. Israel/Palestine - 15 MB

Great work guys! Not bad for a country that has very little data to
import in the first place (unlike Japan) and with a smallish territory
(unlike China and India). :-D

How much bigger can we grow? Italy, which has a very similar land area
to the Philippines, has a compressed OSM XML file size of 433 MB. The
UK, which has about 1/5 less area than the Philippines, has a
compressed OSM XML file size of 458 MB. And Germany, which has about
1/5 more land area, has a whopping 1.3 GB of compressed OSM XML data!
