ICANN's numbers a bit revealing and arguably sad.  Quoting the 1 pg overview:

1930 applications, after refunds, for new generic top-level domains.
1846 of those are “standard” applications.  84 are designated as “community-based”.	
Of the 1930, 66 have designated themselves as geographic name applications.
116 applications are Internationalized Domain Names, or IDNs, using non-Latin scripts.

Just three applicants seek support through ICANN’s Applicant Support Program [that CS fought to get established.]

Applications  from 60 countries. Using ICANN’s definitions of the world’s regions:

911 applications came from North America. 
675 from Europe. 
303 applications are from the Asia-Pacific region. 
24 are from Latin America and the Caribbean. 
17 from Africa.

Some domain names have been applied for by more than one applicant. There are 230 domain names for which at least two applications were submitted, involving a total of 751 applications.
