I remembered a female politician with short, grey hair... Cammerro? (Better with faces than names and now I might be thinking of Geraldine Ferraro)

I would have put money on it being Panama, but as it's not...

NICARAGUA

After the Sun and the planets, what is the largest body* (by size not mass) in the solar system?


EDIT:
* A single body, not lots of bodies. (Just for Bruce because I don't what the combined size of Saturn's rings are. )

I recall something recently about a "close" encounter with a large asteroid? Is that it? I don't remember it's name though.
