1 person earns 1000 dollars per week = 1000
therefore 10 people earn 1090 dollars per week = average pay 109 dollars per week.
In many of the countries mentioned here the majority of people are not taking home anything like the average figures mentioned.
(Take that Germany!)
Relations between the USA and Venezuela were very positive for decades. The US was the first country in the world to recognize the independence of Gran Columbia, and relations with Caracas were consistent when Venezuela later declared its own independence. In the early 1900s the US stopped European powers from invading and reacquiring Venezuela, as the country spent decades in various international incidents due to their wrong-headed trade policies. In the latter half of the century it was American expertise, ingenuity, and capital that allowed for the exploitation of the country's oil resources, turning it into by far the wealthiest nation in South America.
Hugo Chavez came to power, probably just as brainwashed as our friend above here, and started taking Venezuela in the direction of a belligerent rogue nation. He unilaterally worsened the relationship between the two countries, some would say with obvious and deliberate intent.
Decades of corruption, incompetence, failed policies, paranoid delusion, and a willfully and needlessly belligerent stance toward foreign policy led to the stagnation of Venezuela's economy. The fact that they failed to diversify their industries and then there was a sharp drop in the price of oil led to economic collapse.
By 2016 when America would elect its own version of Chavez (a deeply corrupt, ignorant, racist, needlessly belligerent, inept, isolationist, friend-to-dictators, enemy-of-democracy, faux populist narcissist with terrible policy ideas who had no business being in charge of anything)... the country was already in freefall and none of Trump's bluster or insults mattered.
Spot-on. That guy thinks whatever the State Department tells him to. :)

Cape Verde is an option as small and touristy, Namibia has natural resources and small population, but other than that there are not many good options left.
missed only Bostwana.
There aren't that many countries in South America and they all tend to hover around the middle in terms of income. None that are exceptionally wealthy and none that are exceptionally poor.
Anyway Brazil is not exceptionally wealthy but it's also far from being as poor as places like Afghansitan, Haiti, or Uganda.
Norway is the richest country in Europe measured by wealth per capita according to the World Bank, see this in many ways very interesting report; https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/bitstream/handle/10986/29001/9781464810466.pdf
Seems that they are doing pretty well for themselves regarding what just recently happened there.
