15 Richest Countries in the World! 15. Australia Per Capita GDP: 45,925 It’s not surprising that the massive country
of Australia is one of the richest in the world with its resource-rich economy. In fact Australia has been consistently progressive
and prosperous for years. In 1902 they were the 2nd country in the world
to allow women the right to vote (the first was New Zealand), and they have not had a
recession in 25 years. Australia was originally founded by the British
in 1788 as a penal colony, where more than 150,000 convicts were transferred from England
and neighboring countries. While some were dangerous others had been
transferred for petty crimes like stealing a bag of sugar. For a country founded originally by criminals,
being on this list is pretty impressive! Interestingly, Australia spends more money
on gambling than any other country in the world… perhaps a reflection on some of the
country’s more colorful origins! 14. Germany Per Capita GDP: 46,401 Germany has one of the highest trade surpluses
in the world. The most popular industries within the country
include coal, cement, iron and steel, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverages including
beer. In fact, the beer industry is so popular in
Germany, most Germans and cities consider it a staple food item. Citizens in Germany can legally drink beer
and alcohol in public, without receiving a fine or being questioned by the authorities. Teenagers as old as 14 can even drink a beer
in public, just so long as they are accompanied by a parent or a legal guardian. Despite the wide acceptance of drinking, alcoholism
has become a severe problem – some arguing it is the biggest social problem – within
the country. 13. Austria Per Capita GDP: 47,682 Austria is currently the 13th richest country
in the world, and the 2nd richest country in the European Union (EU). Since 2013 Austria’s has been about 1/3 higher
than that of the rest of the countries in the EU. Austria has several popular industries that
help contribute to its wealth and the high standard of living that is common in Austrian
society. Some of those industries include chemicals,
food, construction, metals, lumber and wood processing, machinery, vehicles and parts,
and prostitution. Yes, prostitution is legal and widely accepted
in Austria, in fact brothels and sex shops are common throughout most cities and are
not hidden in red light districts… no wonder the tourism industry is also thriving there. 12. Netherlands Per Capita GDP: 48,253 The Netherlands is able to maintain an extremely
competitive (and flexible) economy through its minimal government regulations that are
seemingly free from corruption. The government encourages robust entrepreneurial
activities, and has a thriving export industry focused on chemicals, electrical machinery,
food processing, and petroleum refining. The Netherlands is also the second largest
agricultural exporter on the planet. Fascinatingly in most cities in the Netherlands,
such as Amsterdam, smoking tobacco is prohibited – smoking marijuana on the other hand is
perfectly acceptable, even in coffee shops! 11. Ireland Per Capita GDP: 49,393 In recent years the economy of Ireland has
made some impressive leaps and bounds. After a couple of unpredictable years and
low fiscal health upon being the first country to exit a European Union bailout, the Irish
economy is flourishing. They have undergone a number of worthwhile
reform measures, and have completely restructured their banking sector. The Irish economy is not the swiftest growing
economies in the Eurozone. Everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s
Day, oddly enough however, the real St. Patrick was not even Irish at all, he was a Briton! 10. Saudi Arabia Per Capita GDP: 52,010 The Saudi Arabian economy is primarily oil-based
with extremely strong governmental control on important economic activities. However this strenuous governmental control
is not extended toward the country’s actual justice system. There is no actual legal code within the country. Instead the country designates individual
judges who decide and enforce punishment of their choosing, which basis is grounded within
Islamic Scriptures. This strange balance of power gives these
judges limitless power, creating possibly the most inconsistent legal system on the
planet. Although punishments should be based on said
Islamic Scripture, often times punishments for crimes are just made up! 9. United States Per Capita GDP: 54,629 The United States has the largest economy
(in nominal terms) on the planet, however recent years have shown a decrease in economic
ranking. The USA has been known as a country with vibrant
entrepreneurial growth, but in recent decades, the growth has been hindered by expensive
and intrusive governmental policies that range from categories such as energy to health care. Despite these hindrances, the United States
has still been able to maintain a significant standing as one of the world’s wealthiest
countries. Strangely, even though the US is the 9th wealthiest
country in the world, approximately 40-50 percent of Americans are considered “low
income” or living in poverty. 8. Switzerland Per Capita GDP: 59,540 Switzerland is known for it’s skiing, clocks,
chocolate, and neutrality (of course!) – however, it is also known for having one of the most
stable economies in the world! There are two important factors that lead
to the country’s high economic livelihood: the country’s small size, and its high labor
specialization. Furthermore, their economy benefits from strong
protection of property rights and a very small tolerance for any political corruption. Interestingly, even though the country is
known for being “neutral”, it has some of the most liberal firearm laws in the world
and there are roughly 48 guns per 100 citizens in Switzerland. The takeaway? Do not pick a fight a person in Switzerland. 7. Norway Per Capita GDP: 65,614 The economy of Norway has had robust growth
since the dawn of the Industrial Age. Norway’s economic growth has been primarily
influenced by use of the land’s natural resources such as fisheries, hydroelectric power, and
petroleum production. Not only is Norway are highly prosperous nation,
it is also very safe. There is a mistaken notion that the Norwegian
police do not carry firearms, they do – however, they rarely actually use them. It is estimated that only 2 people have been
killed by police in the last decade, and one of them was terrorist, Anders Breivik, in
2011. 6. United Arab Emirates Per Capita GDP: 67,674 The United Arab Emirates economy is the second
largest economy in the Arab world, following Saudi Arabia – however, the enormous profits
from its oil refineries places the UAE 4 levels higher on the list of the world’s richest
countries. The country’s extreme wealth is however almost
entirely reliant on their lucrative oil refineries, which begs the question of how long these
resources will last. However, the UAE’s wealth is not likely to
change anytime soon, and much of the country lives in excess. A huge portion of super-rich UAE citizens
actually own exotic animals – from lion cubs being carried around in expensive handbags,
to cheetahs riding around in luxury sports-cars. Speaking of sports-cars, the Dubai police
force drives around in Supercars such as Lamborghini’s and Aston Martin’s! 5. Brunei Darussalam Per Capita GDP: 71,185 Chances are you may not have heard of the
Nation of Brunei that lies tucked away between the Malaysian state of Sarawak in the southeast
region of Asia, but, the small country is one of the top five wealthiest countries on
the planet! The economic boom that took place in Brunei
happened relatively recently, during the last century when oil was discovered in the late
1920s near the Seria River. For such a prosperous nation, it is surprising
to learn that the country only has one McDonald’s… or perhaps there is only one McDonald’s because
the country is so prosperous. 4. Kuwait Per Capita GDP: 73,246 Kuwait has a thriving economy, but like several
wealthy countries in the Middle East, it is primarily fueled by and dependent on its vast
oil industry. The government has made several failed attempts
to diversify and modernize the country’s economic structure – but their oil industry has continuously
dominated. This by no means is a negative thing however
as Kuwait remains the 4th wealthiest country on the planet. In fact the Kuwaiti dinar, the main currency
in Kuwait, is the highest valued currency in the world. 3. Singapore Per Capita GDP: 82,763 Singapore ranks as the third wealthiest country
on the planet, due primarily to its extensively advanced trade-oriented market. It’s economy is also ranked as the most open
economy in the world, one of the least corrupt, and the most pro-business. So just how wealthy is the nation of Singapore? Well, the fact that they have a $1000 bank
note, most likely puts their massive wealth in perspective. Thinking of traveling to Singapore? Do not get it confused with the other Singapore
that is in Michigan! 2. Luxembourg Per Capita GDP: 98,460 The seemingly microscopic nation of Luxembourg
is surprisingly the second wealthiest country in the world! The citizens of Luxembourg make on average
double the salary of American citizens. The expansive private sectors and education
are two of the primary reasons for the country’s impressive financial success. The country’s government debt is also the
lowest within the Eurozone, and one of the lowest throughout the globe. A recent UN survey declared that you have
less a chance to be shot in Luxembourg than in any other country on the planet… given
however that Luxembourg is the least populated country within Europe, this may not be too
surprising. 1. Qatar Per Capita GDP: 140,649 The energy rich Arab nation of Qatar, tops
the list as the wealthiest country in the world! The cornerstones of Qatar’s economy is its
energy sector, comprising of rich petroleum and natural gas resources. Their vast oil reserves will keep their country
on top for at least the next 25-30 years, and likely longer. If ever visiting the country, be weary of
complementing or admiring someone’s possessions. Qatari tradition dictates that a host should
gift the said possession to the admirer (even if they would prefer not to); this can make
for an awkward after dinner conversation.

    Why India is the richest country on the earth. First it has huge oceans three sides so much of fishing and resources. Second they don't dig for oil mostly coal is used and no nuclear facilities. Third extreme cold regions like Himalayan gives plenty of water throughout the year. So no problems at least in North India. Fourth nobody builds big building and it is banned in India above 3 floors. Except some metro. They have nsew rail links for major cities and metro for suburbs. And most villages are cutoff to avoid clustering of population. They always use stop gap thatch roofs for city which can be moved so not much hassles about housing and excessive electricity usage. Extreme low energy usage in the world. Labour cost of anything is the cheapest on earth.

    There is so much wrong in this video. They show a cliff in the Netherlands, this is definitely not the Netherlands. They say "it's not allowed to smoke in most cities", which is not true. There is no smoking ban or something like that. Only in restaurants it is not allowed to smoke. The flag on the end of Luxemburg, is the Dutch flag, they first show the flag of Luxembourg and later the Dutch.
