Top 10 World’s Richest Countries in 2012

Top 10 World’s Richest Countries in 2012

Forbes magazine published an article recently on the richest 15 countries in the world and the surprise was that on top of this list is the Arab state of Qatar.

Qatar topped a list that classifies countries on the basis of per capita gross domestic product, where the annual per capita income in it exceeds 88 Thousand  Dollars, according to figures from the International Monetary Fund the world of 2010. Thanks to enormous economic revenues of oil and gas reserves, in comparison with the relatively low population (1.7 million inhabitants), as well as the diversity of investments carried out by the Qatari government from owning stakes in global financial institutions, universities and multinational companies, through the organization of major world events as the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

UAE also came in sixth place on the list with an average income of 47,439 dollars, while Kuwait dissolved down to the fifteenth spot with an average annual income of 38,775 dollars.

It should be noted that these figures do not mean what the person obtain as an annual salary in these countries, it means the amount of his share of the value of goods and services provided by the State in which the person lives if it was divided on the entire population.

    fuck the Muslim shit, USA is the world’s richest country

    • Hywel

      This is per capita, not how much the country actually has. the richest countries are USA,China,Japan,Germany,France,Brazil,United Knigdom  

      • Richardstifler

        US china japan are powerful! Europe country are powerful and rich too!

      • DeeJay

        Hywel, in terms of actual wealth of an individual (ie the median amount in US Dollars between the wealthiest and poorest of a country) Australia tops the list at US$222,000 per person with Norway a close second. USA is only US$53,000 and way down the list. For average wealth of an individual Australian comes in at US$397,000. This is second only to Switzerland at over US$500,000 ! Australian personal wealth is heavily weighted toward domestic real estate.

        • jake

          lol DeeJay, when it comes to individual wealth, Australia tops the list? Yeah, right, ask an average Aborigine if he’s rich. lol, USA is the richest country in the world. There’s no other country with a population of more than 300 million people and it has a high GDP and a high per capita income.

          • tom

            Yes, I agree. USA is a huge country with 300 million people and
            the biggest economy. It has resources, technology and power.

          • Rajvi

            I don’t think that’s true. Because of thousand idiots, you can’t blame that the whole country’s population are idiots. Americans are very helpful, they helped several countries in wars. I believe that they are not IDIOTS, but the people who THINK they are idiots, are IDIOTS. I believe that the statement you said above is very vague…

        • Rajvi

          Every person has a right to speak, but not the right to speak the false of other countries. Stop stereotyping other countries.. Here, it’s not about getting offended, it’s about using the right language…

      Qatar is rich because of loads of oil and wealth of the families. All the Qataris have over a million riyals because and they don’t even have to work they get given money for being qatari. Qatar does not rely on tourism for money like dubai but it does have some attractions that have caused people to live there. I have lived in qatar for 8 years, so all this stuff is true.

    • gibesh

      in usa mothers do sex with son,son do sex with sisters and grand mother.what a disgusting culture .all working in top class companies r asians.In Nasa all most all the scientists are indians.We will not allow any american pigs to enter in india.Andrew u r real pig man.i dont which bad word suits u.Take ur mother panties and bra from the stree u fucking street dog.

      nasty white pig .Asians will rule americaa u pig.u will be living under the control of us like 3rd rate bastard

      • Rajvi

        You are partly right Gibesh, I’m from India too… But don’t you think we should use the right language to say what you just said?I’m sorry, but we should help other countries instead of deceiving them like that. USA is also a country, people have different cultures. Therefore, I believe that we all should treat the countries the same way. Staying united will help us solve future problems sustainably, don’t you agree?

    • Rajvi

      excuse me???!! Wtf?! I don’t think we should blame Muslims. All the energy you use everyday is obtained by their lands and their employment. I’m not Muslim, but still, you should nor blame them like that. You don’t have the right to. If you think they are a shit, explain why..? Why? Your statement is vague and unclear…

    This is a fucking joke… Richest based on average income? Do you all notice the flaw?… Lets do a scenario. There are 100 people in New York (lets just say there was).. 1 earns 1,500,000 a year… 80 earn 90,000 a year.  19 earn 50,000 a year. The average would then be somewhere around 140,000 a year. It wouldn’t make it true. Wealth should be based on debt and national bankstandings, echonomically. But truly it should be based on true average wealth. % of population with healthy living standards… This is truly moronic.

    • DeeJay

      In terms of actual wealth of an individual (ie the median amount in US Dollars between the wealthiest and poorest of a country) Australia tops the list at US$222,000 per person with Norway a close second. USA is only US$53,000 and way down the list. For average wealth of an individual Australian comes in at US$397,000. This is second only to Switzerland at over US$500,000 ! Australian personal wealth is heavily weighted toward domestic real estate.

       USA are mondern day nazis, there in debt because they borrow money and cant pay it off, half there population live in wooden houses, compared to Qatar there an ant when it comes to wealth.

      • 12 year old American

        Modern day nazis are called Neo-nazis which is still incorrect because if you went to um I don’t know fifth grade in America you would know that nazis where mainly in Geremany. It was a stupid president that got us in debt and I don’t see how it’s fair to judge the country based on one man’s mistake. However, we do have to pay off the debt he created an doing so will take time. You say that half the population lives in wooden houses well most houses are built with wood… What’s your point? I have wooden floors and they’re beautiful and more expensive then some carpets and tile foors.

          • bryceps

            The President is trying to increase social programs making it easier for people in poverty. That’s wasting money and making Americans dependent on the government. If poverty isn’t hard living, then the people will continue willingly to be impoverished. The President thinks taxes are completely justified if there are benefits to compensate. In other words, he would think its ok to tax 100% income of there are enough benefits in return.He’s a socialist. People need to STOP taking money from the government, find ANY job, and be independent and self sufficient. That’s called freedom and personal responsibility; that’s what the US is all about.

            Anyone with certain physical or mental disabilities that cant take care of themselves can get help from CHARITIES, not tax dollars.

            Whew… Alright… Anyways, we just need to get rid of President Obama and a few idiots in congress.

            • s3ood al-3abdulla

              please guyz talk properly about muslims and qatar cauze i am a qatari and i didnt talk about religions and contries like usa or christanity ….. plzz respect

              • Medryn Kilpatrick

                Did you personally talk to the 312 million US citizens and all of them talk bad about you and other Muslims? No, you did not. What you did do was see a few crazy posts and statements from a few radical extremists, from the USA or not, that talked bad about Muslims. So please be mature and intelligent enough to realize you should not judge an entire country of citizens from the whack statements of some racist discriminatory nut jobs who use bigotry and prejudice towards others.

                The majority of the population here is non-radical, non-racist, and is accepting of other races and religions. We judge a person by their actions and not a self-produced perception of their life and beliefs. In America we live within a melting pot of tons of different races and religions and acceptance of each other and our unified existence with our unified goals keep us working together and that is the norm here. Any form of bigotry, prejudice, and discrimination here in the US is highly looked down on and unaccepted. Does that mean that out of 312 million people all will be perfect and live a pure life full of acceptance, kindness, and common interest? No, there are crazies in any society. You’re only looking at the exception of a few who speak out showing their immaturity and disrespect towards others which every country has to some degree.

                As an American I love my fellow citizens, the Muslim ones, the Christian ones, the Mormon ones, the Atheists, etc… and that is the focus here overall as our country is built on freedom, including the freedom of religion which is a key part of our society and drives our profound ability of co-existing. So to those slandering and threatening each other, grow up, act your age and show some maturity. We are becoming a global community, America has been a major player in that role with so many other countries aiming to progress the same. If you keep up the prejudice and discriminatory attitudes toward one another you’ll eventually find the world is moving on without you.

                And please, don’t be brainwashed or swayed by anything you have not experienced firsthand, you should always stand up for yourself enough that the least you’ll do is refuse to accept truth outside of your own personal experience, because so many people become prejudice and bigots for that exact reason, they let gossip, second hand information, and their pride to be accepted lead them into believing things they have not experienced firsthand for themselves and sadly let it guide their thinking. Be fair to yourself and don’t do this, if you want to truly understand America fairly, come live here and be a part of it, as is the same if you truly want to understand and form opinions of any other country & society be it with Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, and so many more.

                For many here that are posting so harshly, instead of being judgmental and discriminating towards other cultures including immature threats and name calling, you have much better things you can do with your time & your life, and in those things, I personally wish you all the best. With respect and best wishes from another human, another “Earthling” that happens to live in the great state of Texas, USA. Remember, were all human, make it count.

  • leelyla

    This is the wrong list. You’re using the GDP/capita derived from PPP guesses. But that value only tells you how much the inhabitants can buy for their money in their own country.

    You need to use the nominal GDP/capita list.

    Look at all these jealous Hajis showing off their horrible English. Go back into your sand huts derka derka. The US has enough military superiority to annihilate the entire middle east in less than a month. Look how many problems and wars have been created in the name of Islam and Muslim bull-shit. Most of you still have to have bigger, badder countries hold your hand and tell you wrong from right. I mean seriously, who shits in a hole, wipes is ass with a bare left hand, and thinks it’s an insult to show the bottom of your feet? This is Islam. A failure to adapt to the modern ways of the world.

    USA is rich of course but they are concentrating more in building up their power while Quatar is making money from the natural resources that they have. Anyway whats more important is not how rich the country you belong its the individuals state of living. And as I have observed both rich and poor men exist in everyplace no matter how famous the government is. Many countries tried to establish an equality for all their citizens such as communism but their living status today proves it ineffective. The world is just designed to have poor and rich and if it is not so surely no one will work for others ehalf, everyone loves to become a bos and thats just the way it is and its called life.
