You'll have fun creating this one in Tableau. The donut usually uses a dual axis, but you can only do that 2 layers deep.
You might check out the bullet chart posted on VizWiz as a starting point: Dear Data Two | Week 35: Getting Dressed
If you want an easier chart, but still donuts - may I suggest a chart I call "The Maple Longjohn"?
It's like the original donut, but longer, instead of circular - and without a hole in the middle.
Best of all - it is very Tableau friendly.
Please see the attached workbook. While it is not 100% matching, I'm hoping this solution will take you far enough that you can play around with formatting and employ some more techniques to reach your final solution.
You can stack pie charts in Tableau, since we can plot them along the X axis, then adjust the axis to be so large the relative positions of the data points over lap.
I created these X values and made them specific to each region so each region would have it's on pie chart along the axis. I also created a size variable so each chart would be sized slightly less than the next. The 2 variables have an inverse relationship so they overlap.
Feel free to review and let me know if you have any other questions.

I have tried to replicate Michaels beautifully created stacked doughnut charts and I cannot seem to get it right. Could you provide a step by step by any chance as it seems recreating the sampled workbook is not working for me.
Also is there any way to have each region its own color that still represents the difference between the percentage and the remainder?
This is great!
I was very helped by your decision, thank you. But I have a question about coloring the bands inside the chart. For example, if I have the most in North America, then it should be highlighted in green, and all the others in red?
