Is PPP the best metric here? I always thought PPP was meant to measure how much the individuals can buy, whereas nominal GDP measures how rich the country is compared to other countries. Interesting quiz anyway!

Surprised to see Brunei. I thought they have wide spread poverty because the Monarch considers the nation his personal property

It’s GDP per capita. If 20 people are in a room with Jeff Bezos, they are, on average, all billionaires. That’s similar to how GDP per capita works.

Only one African country in the list. And in the letter Z.

Basically no other continents have countries starting with Z.

Taiwan's sovereignity is intact as far as I know. More people fear that it will be annexed by China, that may be true.

If you have ever lived there, it is pretty obvious it is an independent country, de facto though not de jure. It has its own currency, entry requirements, school system, military, etc. It controls its own borders. It is a democracy with elections.

It is said that their workers are relatively cheaply paid compared to the continent's basis, and the population is also big, but somehow the GDP per capita of Putin's people remains remarkable. See how their billionaires are commanding!

China is a rich country in the sense that its total GDP is big. But that is because it has a population of more than one billion. Per capita, it is not rich. Again, if you had ever lived there, that would be perfectly obvious.

Level ∞
Nov 5, 2020
It's a quirk in how things are calculated. Many big companies such as Google, Apple, and Facebook employ a variety of accounting scams to avoid paying taxes. One of these is to book revenue via an Irish subsidiary. The revenue counts as economic production for Ireland, but it doesn't actually reach the population.
