ANSWER #1 of 5

Hotness of pepper is measured in scoville, which is the proportion of dilution you
need to neutralize the pepper powder in sugar-water, so that at least humans don't
detect any hotness at all.
The winners are two Thai peppers, Bhut Jolokia and Naga Jolokia, which have
1000000 scoville.
Pepper-spray has about 2000000-5000000.

Pure Capsaicin (the substance which causes the hotness) has 16000000.
However, I don't think it's easy to get it pure, because it can be lethal in large quantities.
