Is there any place on Earth that gets the most moonlight?

Hey astronomers! I don't know if this even makes sense to ask, but my partner and I have been kicking around whether there is any place on Earth that gets what could be described as the most moonlight. Moonlight only counts as times where it is only the moon showing, not also the sun (since it's reflected light from the sun, I know this seems arbitrary, but I'm not looking for just visible moon, since the light really does look different).
Is there any way to determine this?
Does the whole Earth get the same amount of moonlight per year?
How would one even start to figure this out (astronomy was many years ago)?
