Canadians and American's are the most hard core dedicated and largest group of trekkers and trekkies period
I'm really not convinced, you might be right but I'm not just going to take your word for it.
Star Trek always was, and still is, very big over in the UK. It's also pretty big in Germany and a number of other European countries.
Europe has double the population of the USA - I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the numbers of players was roughly similar, or the USA has more but the margin isn't hugely significant. I don't know, point is - you don't either. You're just being all "USA! USA! USA!" because that's what your culture is like.
As for most dedicated? You should have seen Star Trek Convention: London. Sold out in a matter of hours, and prices for tickets were extortionate!
