Only the Unicode-included Unified and six extensions considered for the question (87887 symbols, 12 compatibility included).

Possible contenders:

BabelStone Han: includes all of original map and partially all the extensions.

Source/Noto: includes all possible 65 535 physical TrueType-includable symbols, but also incomplete outside the original map.

MingLiU: circumvents the problem by having multiple files and covers all B.

What is the biggest one?
