His Serene Highness Prince Hans Adam II, is Liechtenstein’s current ruler. He’s Europe’s richest monarch, worth about $5 billion. The National Anthem has the same tune as 'God Save the Queen' of UK. Population >36,000. There are more Registered Companies than people. The largest industrial companies in Liechtenstein are Hilti (construction services), Balzers (electro-optical coatings), Hilcona (frozen foods), and Ivoclar-Vivadent (dental medical technology).

Hilti (top quality machinery), Neutrik (one of the world leaders for audio-video connectors), and they might be the world leader in dental prosthesis production (or at least, the leader in high quality ones). They tend to do the same things as their Swiss neighbors, namely high quality manufacture, if not exactly cheap (due to strong CHF).

I absolutely can't believe that Brunei is not on this list: huge oil exports divided by a small population. More per capita than Ireland??

You'd think that I'd know UAE = country and Dubai = city. Still was very surprised not to find Dubai on the list and missed UAE. ARGH!

Wow - how hard is this? No obvious pattern seems to emerge. I got 6 but would never have guessed Lichtenstein - learning something every day!

I think the pattern is: rich country + relatively small population. But I must admit that Liechtenstein was a bit of a puzzle to me too, had no idea that they produce anything. Would've rather guessed Luxembourg etc.

The pattern is countries with large amounts of exports and low populations.

Or rather expensive exports/relatively small population. I don't know if some of these countries export anything else than oil.
