Top 10 Richest Countries in The World

There are a lot of ways how you can predict how rich a country is and then compare it with other

countries. One of the best and most frequently used methods is calculating the GDP per capita (it is the

total value of services and goods produced by a nation during a whole year divided by its population).

A strong economy often has a positive effect on the average life expectancy and the comfort in lifestyle of
the citizens. However, it does have any influence on the satisfaction levels of the citizen or the level of
their happiness. A ranking of happiness can easily show you that having more GDP will not guarantee
happiness. Here is the list of the top 12 richest countries in the world as of 2018 which are vary in size,
population and the revenue being generated every year by them..

Here are the top ten richest countries in the world:

1. Qatar

The GDP per capita in this country is $133,039.60. While it still has the highest GDP per capita in the world, it has been falling in recent years, probably due to the collapse in oil prices.

2. Luxembourg


The GDP per capita in this country is $100,778.53. GDP growth over the past ten years is impressive, at least when compared with the U.S.. This country’s GDP per capita grew a little more than $12,000 in the last five years.
