Top 10 Richest Countries in the World


A country is usually considered rich if its inhabitants can afford a decent standard of living while still having enough money to invest in non-essential commodities. We have put together a list with the 10 richest countries in the world at the present time. Keep in mind that this isn’t a permanent configuration, given how much the global economy fluctuates and how fast some small oil-rich countries are developing. Still, the following list was put together by calculating the GDP per capita of all the world’s nations along with their HDI.


Last but definitely not least is Austria. The nation that is credited with the invention of PEZ is the tenth richest country in the world. Austria is home to 8.41 million people and has a GDP per capita of $39,711. The main language spoken in Austria is German, while its main industries are construction, food and metals.
