I have lived in 5, and travelled to around 25. I came to the conclusion that where ever you go, people are pretty much the same.

Lived in 2 (USA and China), traveled to or have lived short-term in 20, but I can say with complete and utter confidence (@atd15) that people in China are NOT the same as anyone, anywhere else ;) I find commonalities with all of the other European, Arab, and even African expats that live here in Shandong, but we all laugh at how different the Chinese are sometimes :) (in a fond way of course)

Sadly, I'm not much of a traveler.

Lived - 1
Visited - 4

Though, visited is more like one/two honestly. I used to live near Detroit so one of the countries I've visited is Canada. However, when you live so close that you could walk there, I don't really consider it a different country (so you say aye and like maple syrup way too much, that's about the only difference). Other than that I visited Greece a few years back (absolutely beautiful btw, never pass that up if you ever get the opportunity). My flight took me through Germany so I guess technically I've visited there too. The tour through Greece was amazing, and we made a half day stop in Turkey as well. So all countries 'visited' would be: (in order of time I've spent there from most to least) Canada, Greece, Turkey, Germany.

@dmaz: I didn't mean that people are culturally the same, I meant that you find good and bad people everywhere. We often demonize people from other places, and my experience is that this is not the case.

I've lived in just the US but have visited Mexico, Canada, and South Korea. (Oh, and I saw Japan when I flew over it, but that probably doesn't count.)

Zero, Four, and Four.

I've lived only in the US, but that won't be a country much longer. I've traveled to - or through - and visited Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, and the Cayman Islands.

If things go right I'll be moving to a different country by the end of 2012, then the number will be 1.
