    According to the statistics

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Is it correct to say "no one" or should it be "no other nation"?

    According to the statistics, no one drinks so much tea in Europe as Turks do.

    See above. I would stick with "no one" - if you use "no other nation", you would have to use the name of a country at the end, not a nationality.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It should be ' ...no other nation drinks as much tea as the Turkish do.'
