The World’s Richest Countries

The richest country in the world is rich on scenery too.

The world’s richest countries are much more geographically spread out than the poorest, yet there are no African or South American countries on the World Bank‘s list. It measures GDP (gross domestic product) in USD per capita divided by the population (midyear). The figures are for 2010-2014.

It may come as no surprise that Norway, my own oil rich country, is on the very top – narrowly beating Qatar, another oil country.


  1. Norway: 97,363 USD

  2. Qatar: 93,397 USD

  3. Australia: 61,887 USD

  4. Denmark: 60,634 USD

  5. Sweden: 58,887 USD

  6. Singapore: 56,287 USD

  7. United States: 54,629 USD

  8. Ireland: 53,314 USD

  11. Austria: 51,127 USD

  12. Canada: 50,271 USD

  13. Finland: 49,541 USD

  14. Germany: 47,627 USD

  15. Belgium: 47,517 USD

  16. United Kingdom: 45,603 USD

  17. France: 42,736 USD

  18. United Arab Emirates: 42,522 USD

  19. Brunei: 40,776 USD
