I have one country layer in a shapefile consisting of a lot of attributes, but the result needs to be in WKT file/format. I'm using QGIS 3.12 . I'd tried GetWKT Plugin but it limited to one selected feature only.

How can I convert the whole shapefile to a WKT file? Any suggestion of what plugins I can use to convert the shapefile?

    WKT is not a file format but a vector representation format (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…) so you cant really convert a shapefile to WKT but you can add WKT attribute to your shape file or any other export format, see @30184 answer for exporting to CSV with WKT

You do not need any plugin. Use Save As... and select CSV as outputformat. From the CSV layer options select "AS_WKT" for the geometry.
