The biggest nuke ever made was the Tsar Bomba dropped by the Soviet Union (50M). Apparently it could have been scaled up to 100M. By the late 60s, it was deactivated and considered insane to have such a big yield on a nuke. The current strategic nukes are in the 500 kiloton range.

Tsar Bomba device: 50 Mt — USSR, most powerful explosive device ever, mass of 27 short tons (24 metric tons), in its "full" form (i.e. with a depleted uranium tamper instead of one made of lead) it would have been 100 Mt.
EC17/Mk-17, the EC24/Mk-24, and the B41 (Mk-41) (most powerful US weapons ever: 25 Mt; the Mk-17 was also the largest by size and mass: ca. 20 tons; the Mk-41 had a mass of 4800 kg; gravity bombs carried by B-36 bomber (retired by 1957).

The Soviet Union tested an 80 megaton nuclear device. I do not know if they have another such weapon.

An Anti Matter Bomb. it a perfect conversion of Matter and Antimatter to energy. (It is real. Look up CERN Laboratories.)
Although it would take about 30 million years to make a 1 ounce bomb so it isn't really feasible
The runner up is the Hydrogen Bomb... So far. I think 65 Megatons is about the biggest in service. Called the Trident If I remember right.
