"Most Christian nation" = nation with highest number of christians, even if the vast majority of Chinese are not Christians?

I suppose the Vatican is the least Christian nation then

Of course this has no bearing on the news but the wording these journalists used irked me, it's just wrong

Exactly, they just have such a high population in general that they tend to claim these kinds of titles.
