Wealthiest Countries (nominal GDP per capita)

More relevant than PPP (purchasing power parity) in my opinion. These answers average data from the United Nations, World Bank, IMF, and CIA World Fact Book.

Strange to see Ireland at 17. Their economy is down the plughole.

Their GDP per capita is ranked between 15th and 20th depending on which data you use. The CIA Factbook actually ranks them lowest. They have an economy somewhere between 44th and 47th largest in the world, but their population is 119th. So.. per capita.. it's quite large.

it's good to see Ireland on the list, but I can't help but notice that the Micronations are at an advantage here. Still better than using real though.

Quite amusing to find Denmark here and Venezuela not, although Fox News entitles both of them as "socialist" (yes, I know that Denmark obviously isn‘t socialist)

Also, surprised not to see New Zealand, but I‘m sure they‘re really close to #20.

22nd according to the IMF and World Bank, 24th according to the UN. The Wikipedia page on the subject has removed the CIA data.
