25 wealthiest languages by GDP per capita

Enter an answer into the box
Only languages that are official de jure or de facto NATIONWIDE in at least one country or costituent country and spoken natively by the majority of the population are considered, not regional languages.
Once a language is included, every country or region where it is spoken NATIVELY in its standard form (not a creole) by the majority of the population is considered to calculate the GDP per capita of that language.
