Raises the obvious question: which states do billionaires LEAST want to live in.

They resent living anywhere where they have to see working people. These are just the states that afford the most opportunities to cloister themselves away from the rest of us.

that doesn't make any sense. They live most often in or near big cities full of working people. If they wanted to avoid that they could build themselves a castle in Alaska somewhere.

That's what's known as projection--you are the one who resents billionaires, and so imagine that they feel the same way about you. In reality, they don't give a thought to you. They matter to you, you don't matter to them. The transparent envy isn't charming, though; I'd keep it to yourself.

Really bad take. Billionaires don't have time to resent "working people," they got the way they are because they're focused on seizing the opportunity to earn more money, and many of these opportunities come in densely populated metropolitan areas.

Amazing bootlicking in the replies. Imagine thinking anyone has ever worked hard enough to deserve to be a billionaire. XD

Imagine thinking that you should automatically resent every single person who has become a billionaire.

Imagine celebrating unimaginable accumulations of wealth. And then imagine imagining that such wealth was earned!

These answers closely match the actual populations of these states. Perhaps a version of billionaires per capita would give a better sense of the most prosperous-and-also-unequal states.

Imo, not that closely.

Texas, per capita, is much lower than California.

There is no Ohio, Michigan, or North Carolina. The Silver State makes the list.

This was the easiest one of these 10 states with the most/least x quizzes so far. For once got them all with time to spare and guessed maybe 4-5 states outside the list only.

Misread the title as cities, after typing new york first I became increasingly panicked and ended up getting timed out before I realized my mistake

Beautiful place. And expensive to live there. But I think most billionaires prefer living in places more connected to the rest of the world.
