Well St Kitts has one billionaire and Monaco has three, hence some zany numbers. But I wonder with the oil-rich Middle East states being absent, has some info been concealed from Wikipedia?

Only a handful of people in the Gulf states control the wealth.

Not really true. There are a lot of sheikhs and emirs. Tens of thousands of princes in Saudi Arabia, for instance. Most of them are not billionaires. If the wealth were more concentrated than it is then no doubt Qatar, Saudi, Bahrain, the UAE and Oman would all make the cut. But the money isn't in the hands of individuals so much as families.

Interesting about the money of the oil states being in the hands of families. I was really expecting Qatar, UAE and Bahrain to be well up the list for sure.

Brunei? According to Wikipedia: "The Sultan has been ranked among the wealthiest individuals in the world; Forbes estimated the Sultan's total peak net worth at US$20 billion in 2008." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hassanal_Bolkiah

Good point. In that case I think it's a matter of it just being an estimate. Oftentimes the true wealth of monarchs and oligarchs isn't really known and they might not be factored in to the Wikipedia rankings. For instance some people say Vladimir Putin is actually the wealthiest man in the world, but nobody really knows.

Total US foreign aid to Israel 2013 (almost all of which is "military" aid, other assistance is paltry): 2.9 billion USD.
Total Israeli GDP in 2013: 290 billion USD.

An amazing 1%. Yeah, they're totally funding Israel.

About 26 billion dollars is donated in foreign aid. You have underestimated how wealthy the US truly is.

The wealth of the Church, internationally, may be in the billions, but the pope as an individual does not have any ownership of it.

With the latest info from the wiki billionaires page it looks like Denmark (6), Ireland (6) and Liechtenstein (4) will all make the cut with a ratio well above 1.0.

I think Liechtenstein might be wrong. Liechtenstein has a population of 37,000 and 1 Billionaire. So shouldn't the number of billionaires per million people be about 27?

Where exactly is the data from? Wikipedia stages it is from Forbes, but Forbes 400's poorest member has 1.7 million. Wikipedia doesn't currently list St Kitts, while web search suggests Belize and St Lucia also have one each.

Even with the same sources, Brunei's monarch is considered to be a billionaire. With a population of 417.000, this would clearly put them on this list (2.39). Any reason the monarch would be excluded?

Monarchs are generally excluded because its difficult to separate their personal assets from the assets of the state.
