1. Which is the largest country in the world? OK
2. What is the largest country in the world? OK

4. Which country is the largest in the world? OK

Which:
You have a limited choice of things.
What: You have a unlimited choice of things.

For countries you īll see that both are used. After all, is 200 (countries) limited or unlimited...? I personally would go for What īs the largest country in the world?

I fully agree with Philip, with one exception:  #3 is also correct, it is just not as "clean" as the others.
