What is the most powerful nuclear weapon in the world?

I of course doubt it has a name, but if it does please mention it.

I also doubt the United States or Russia would let loose the details of their weapons, so if that's the case please give me your own estimate of how powerful it would be.

Update:

The Tsar Bomba was detonated years ago and another was never produced. Not what I'm looking for.

    Politically, the most powerful nuclear weapon is one that the adversary cannot locate and/or neutralize.

    If you mean in explosive power, and I think you do, then it is likely the Tsar Bomba, a weapon detonated as a brag by the Soviet Union.

    During the Cold War the Russians loaded a large cargo-ship with several hundred tons of highly radioactive cobalt. The rigged the thing with a nuke. The idea is that the with the nuke goes, the cobalt will mix with the vaporized water which enters the atmosphere as fallout. It was (is) big enough to irradiate the whole planet, killing everything.
