Top 10 richest countries of the world

by Roman on May 23, 2008

Here is a top 10 list of worlds richest countries according to CIA World Factbook and Wikipedia measured by GDP per capita. For those in the dark – GDP or Gross Domestic Product – is the value of all the goods that a country produces. GDP per capita stands for the value an average person produces.

10. Switzerland – $39,800 (GDP per capita)

This cheese making country is considered to be one of the most neutral countries in the world. During World War 2, people from other European countries deposited their money in the banks of Switzerland, knowing that their money would be safer there than in their home countries. Some well known Swiss companies include Nestle, Logitech, Rolex and Credit Suisse.

9. Equatorial Guinea – $44,100

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea is a country in Central Africa. Most people have never heard of it. This country flew into stardom after 1996 when large oil reserves were found in the nation of only 0,5 million people. While being one of the largest producers of oil in Africa, little has been made to improve the living conditions of the people. Corruption is widespread and ordinary people are mostly living in poverty. The gap between rich and poor is probably the largest in the world.

8. Ireland $45,600

This member of European Union has been often admired as one of the most modern knowledge economies in the world. Ireland is the largest maker of computer software in the world. A study done by The Economist ranked the Celtic Tiger to have the best quality of life in the world.

7. United States – $46,000

What sets the US apart from most other countries in this list is its size. While most other countries in this list are among the smallest in the world the US has a population of over 300 million and a total land area of 3,79 million square miles (9.83 million sq km). The US is also home to the largest amount of billionaires in the world. It is speculated that as many billionaires live in the US as in the rest of the world.

6. Singapore – $48,900

This tiny country consists of 63 island and some mainland with a total area of only 270 square miles (704 sq km). With Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan it is considered one of the Four Asian Tigers. Singapore has the busiest port in the world and is the 4th largest foreign exchange trading center in the world. Singapore is widely believed to be the most business-friendly economy in the world.

“Ireland is the biggest maker of computer software in the world”

Ruins the article.

Roman May 25, 2008 at 7:47 am

amrit anand October 2, 2010 at 3:19 pm

perhaps i will dishearten my indian counter parts but i believe that the bad remarks are a warning and we should accept it whole heartedly so that we rectify it and never allow them a stand like this again.
we know u have more money and slowly it may be but we will be at par with you.

Ishaan September 8, 2011 at 10:16 am

So what India is not a rich country

arun March 9, 2012 at 1:49 pm

india is the one of the richest country in the world

malik June 3, 2012 at 11:29 pm

India is nowhere near the richest, yes with a combined wealth it is considering the size and populous of the country, but having to distribute your wealth amongst 1.8billion people leaves India trailing in GNP per head, therefore, upto 80% of it’s population is in extreme poverty, if it was wealthy as say UK, than u would have the welfare system in place, UAE and middle east is way better than china and India combined, and if your claiming superiority in education, than I think that doesnt qualify either as European literacy level is 99.8%, india’s is 5-8%, which at 5% is higher than the UK population of 60million, therefore, people think Indians and Chinese are intelligent, yet they could be way worse than Pakistan is, if Pakistan gets its act together, because Pakistan populous is way smaller, which is why Luxembourg has very GNP per head, as its resources are way more than it’s populous

ajay June 17, 2012 at 10:04 am

so what it was before the british invasion in fifteenth century. it was so rich that many nations came to invade india so india is the most invaded country in the wealth.arabs,turks,mongols,portugueese,greeks,french,british,white huns,kushanas e.t.c came to invade india.british robbed everything before 1896 india was the only source of diamond world’s largest diamond is koh-i-noor which was in india but robbed by british to england. india will surely regain it’s past glory.

Hemant August 15, 2012 at 9:17 am

@malik…sure u are a paki…well, under british rule, indian literacy rate was 12% until 1947…and in 2010, it was 75%, according to many reports, its surely going to cross 95% by 2020….and u said 80% of population is under extreme poverty, guess some1 was f***ing u while commenting, its betwen 20%-30%….and let me say u that INDIA IS GOING THROUGH RAPID DEVELOPMENT IN INFRASTRUCTURE, EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY….
@arun….dont just boast, yea india isnt the richest but being exploited until 1947, it is great to be in this position so soon, u will see india crossing other countries very soon….

Prominent November 9, 2011 at 1:17 pm

I luv indian because of their superior product.

Kasper November 4, 2011 at 6:41 pm

Still laughable. have you ever heared of India? they have entire cities where the only thing that is made is computers please check your facts.

plus if you say richest if means alot of things? e.g if you mean buying power per capita this is ALL wrong, if you mean buying power per country this is…well still all wrong so don’t know what you mean by “richest”

Maulik Barot December 18, 2011 at 9:22 am

India is not the Richest but yes India is one of the prosperous country,See at europe,US,UK if you guys have 2 $ in pocket stil you spend 3 $.So there are always ups and down in your economy. We are stable.Ans see as we are not developed we are still developing soo we are not able to pay very huge packages to our people soo they move all around the world.You may not believe but half of the people at NASA are Indians,70% people at Google and Microsoft and Oracle are indians.There’s much more to say …

akash May 28, 2012 at 4:22 am

I Know Nigerial has allot of pontential with undisputed resources. Yet the country is immensely poor with few people enjoy the wealth of the country. Nigeria was a pioneered for oil producer since 1962 before other country. Where the money goes? and how this will linger?

John September 27, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Nigeria will one day rise up 2 her feet nd posses her possesion.I luv Nigeria.

Obviously your grammar hasn’t developed.

Sion April 12, 2010 at 11:22 am

I respect your feeling of patriotism, however, I think you should have been more careful while writing in a language,which is not your forte.

Sion April 12, 2010 at 11:28 am

@ Is that you? I wonder what racial pride you possess which drove you to conclude that our grammatical underdevelopment.

no_name1884 April 25, 2010 at 10:41 pm

Maybe English is that gentlemen’s second or third language. Altough the quality of his English is poor, he certainly knows at least one more language than you do!

america August 25, 2010 at 7:48 pm

it dosent matter the usa dominates the worlds billionare list we have almost half of the world billionares in are countrie, by the way india only has 23 billionares. ( i no i sounded selfish and ignorant and dont mean to offend just making a point and sorry if you are offended by it )

JohnMatt January 24, 2011 at 2:13 am

A country which contains people who consume cow urine and monkey semen while worshiping elephants is definitely never going to enter the modern world, let alone become a rich nation.

Bob February 8, 2011 at 1:23 pm

Well actually Qater has the most GPD per Capita. The average income is 144,000 USD per year. So it is not the riches country.

Russian February 11, 2011 at 7:17 am

India should be the richest country in the world because it is the only country where millions of people dont have shelter and they enjoy sleeping on roads. Saroj is sick because he can see only 3-4 people in whole india and is unaware of millions.

abhishek July 7, 2011 at 12:14 am

indians are richest from heart.

stupid ass June 19, 2009 at 4:07 am

I don’t agree with you. Yes, India is one of a poor countries in the world. Rich Indians are very few compare to your huge population. There are many people still live under $2 a day; many live in the street next to trash and many of them die in the heat or cold. Don’t lie to yourself. Where are your 4 richest people? Are they hidding or just keeping all the money for themselves?

tom December 2, 2009 at 9:22 am

You need to go to school.

Lame idiot.

Sam January 3, 2010 at 11:35 pm

In most of the countries tehre are rich as well as poor: there is no equality:and all donot have the mind to help the donot spell India as the poorer or poorer.

ash March 1, 2010 at 10:26 am

i wish i should have read your name first before making up my mind to answer your dumb question,
but anyways…..
yes people do live under $2 aday but they work hard to make that money rather then being burden on govt and beg money from them .
even lots of people here also died cz of summer n winter situation. if you google it you get the exact numbers.
living next to trash is not by choice but here lots of people after having drugs are sleeping whole night on trash.
so as your name says lots about you then i guess this info is too much for your heavy head

Prathmesh July 17, 2010 at 11:26 pm

Google it
there are 4 indians in the top 10 richest ppl in the world

Ace hood August 24, 2010 at 11:37 pm


Take a look at me now im from the gutta but i made it i made it to the top of the world nuthin holdin me down i told them haters i would make i made it to the top of the world

Vishal December 11, 2010 at 5:49 am

U r right dude,I know man all corporates are have so much of money but they r hiding thier money for themselves & making thier country poorer.

Nadeem December 20, 2010 at 2:49 am

I totally agree with your baton, and the responsible Indian leaders

sandi February 14, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Your name perfectly match your thought and ideas.
Have you ever been to India ever or just read the newspaper and watch the televisions and made your mind?

Remember India got the freedom in 1947 and in 1947 we were left in utmost poverty. We were almost destroyed. Who created the poor people in India? Read go to school and then comment.
India was once the richest country in the universe but we were looted everyday for 300 everyday
In just 64 years we became one of the super powers due to our brain and strong managements.
There are countries in the world became rich and walthy with Indian treasures, valuables etc. Infact they have looted us and became rich nation.
You should immediately go to scholl and make your basics strong.

Thiruppathy ramu November 15, 2011 at 5:04 am

India is the country which thought the whole world about courage and braveness and by right India should be the richest country. The rich are not keeping the money to them self. Do you know that Indians are the 4th most generous people in the world. I am not an Indian citizen but a Malaysian citizen and yet I AM PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN AND PROUD OF INDIAN AND INDIA AND I AM WILLING TO DIE FOR INDIA. no one gave any idiots to question about India and WE ARE THE BEST, INDIANS

Martine December 18, 2011 at 8:25 pm

@ Thiruppathy ramu
What are you saying? We all know Indians are a very deceptive race of people. These people will rip you off at every opportunity, have no integrity whatsoever and will lie and deceive as a matter of course.
All “Paki/Indian” shops are run by thieves. Try it yourself. Buy something and check your change.
Maybe you don’t consider this dishonesty but a way of life?

Bett June 26, 2009 at 9:01 am

If there is a place where there are poor piple is India,in other countries mad piple and street boys and girls are living outdoors like wild animals but in India, majority of normal piple are sleeping in streets no place to call home.wat u can see only is maybe good infrastructure,otherwise everything sucks there.

India never invaded any country in her last 100000 years of history.
When many cultures were only nomadic forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization)
The name ‘India’ is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. The Aryan worshippers referred to the river Indus as the Sindhu.

Hay Mr. motherfucker nasty born.I would like to let you know if all indians come back to india,your country’s situation will have worst than us.Lot of gays and lesbians are showing disrespect of human nature.If we break united states contract of working in IT industry,you will be cripled.You must have to accept that Indians are always agressive in Software development throught world.

IndianMillionaire May 22, 2010 at 5:43 pm

Just 10 of the top richest Indians can buy 30 countries… they have more personal wealth than the entire economy of 30 different countries combined together.

India has a lot of wealth but it is concentrated in very few hands and due to the 1 billion plus population size the per capita income is nothing. Per capita income means nothing – in terms of overall wealth India is in the top 3 richest countries in the world. Back in the 17th century India was the wealthiest country in the entire world before the British came and looted it. The Industrial revolution in England was funded mostly by revenues from India. The Koh-i-noor diamond and most of the British Royal Jewels are from India too (stolen). India was a land of 1000’s of Royal Families and Maharajas when the British came over and most Americans are too IGNORANT to even know this so just to educate them – The British made economic alliances with India’s royal families and only ruled over those parts of India which did not have any direct Indian royal family ruling it. In all other parts of India the British had no direct rule – its a pure misconception and most of India was ruled under the Local Maharajas with the help of the British who later formed a centralized government. India was always known as the “Golden Sparrow of the British Empire”.

Another important fact for Americans to know – I hope you Americans have heard of that your Native Americans are called “Indians”?? Now do you realize why they are called Indians?? Becuase when christopher columbus discovered America in 1492 – he was actually looking for a shorter route to India (because India was a rich land where europeans in those days came for Trade and Business) – but columbus took a wrong turn and ended in America, the first people they saw were native Americans whom they thought to be actually INDIANS – hence till this day native Americans are called Indians. So basically had it not been for India – America may never have existed…or more realistically could have been discovered a century or 2 later and been a poor country till today.

In my opinion Americans are the single most stupidest people on earth – talking any sense or intelligence with them is a waste of time – they live in their own stupid world which is crumbling down very fast.

WandiniBoricua June 12, 2010 at 4:00 am

Lets give a round of applause to Proud to b Indian. People accept facts & efin get over it btw I pretty much new of a lot of the facts just from studying Buddism & facts about the Indian IQ. Yes India was 1 of the most richest country all the math came from there. You American ignorants get a grip and accept facts instead of insulting becuase it makes you feel better when actually you are followers of efin Babylon system. Stop taking credit for shit you have not righteously done. Americans blind as always….America profits from 3rd world countries & fuck the people. Americans invade and brain wash their own troops & US citizens for profit gains by invading countries and creating war; it has been like that for centuries, the above people are right I am Puerto Rican but our island before discovered byt the white man Christopher Columbus raped, married the island indians etc it was done with every Latin country discovered by the Spanish settlers-the white man stole land even from American Indians who even serve for their stupid country. USA doesn’t do shit for anyone, not you, not me or 3rd world country people, except EXPLOIT human beings with poor wages because the American people wont work for less then what they want even if they’re un-educated. Your RICH FORTUNE 500 AND 200 companies rather go to other countries because profit margin is higher example: Perishables in Colombia (Roses 1 dz.) labor cost $2.00 per 8 hour day mark up for 1 dz during Valentines or Mothers Day is between $60-$120.00 do you math you ignor-ANUS. While you are sitting here arguing back and forth India also has many issues like arranging marriages with under age girls. Children been used as slaves etc…no country is perfect but some of us try to create awareness in the world because we see no discrimination, color, gender etc….and while you all are at it perhaps you may want to educate yourselves use your search engine go to and a;go Hulu: Vanguard….wake up people the is more work to be done then bickering with ognorant fools….and you Americans need to accept the truth that America has fucked many countries for their gains. Children are being starved & killed daily out of plain greed. Everyone has their right to their own believe, but one shall respect all religions because AT THE END OF THE DAY—YOU WILL BE JUDGE BY ONE “GOD” . I have more respect for Proud to b Indian, who stated facts– then the ones who insulted each other back and forth. There’s a Latin saying that says “Staying quite seems more appealing” meaning the wise man listen-while the other acts a fool.

Everyone NAMASTE!!

indian January 3, 2011 at 9:25 am

mr.bett do you don,t know that your bank runs upon our money.we spend 30 trillon $ per annum. we have 3682 news paper per day they print compare to the world we have half of the news paper we are much richer than your countries.our navel fleet is worlds 2 mightiest and our army is 3rd mightiest and our underwater army is worlds strongest army.per annum we buy 3 trillon $ of your country their are60/ of our poppulation are millionaire.dont think that india is a poor country we are far more rich than your your countries many of your population may be robbers so thats why we say we are proud to be an indian and namaskar

Gilder February 3, 2011 at 2:42 am

Ok first things first, lets just clarify that Indians are definately not rich. Just because they have four very successful people from their country does not mean that they are a highly developed and well off country. Secondly, most indians who don’t live in poverty, move over (or as “Proud to be Indian” states “invade”) to developed nations. Then for one reason or another, dominate the fast food chains, convenience stores and petrol stations. I mean how do you get satisfaction and pride from that???

Aruna May 11, 2011 at 11:13 pm

Hey can’t you know to write the spelling of people properly.

Hemant August 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

@Bett…improve english first…coming to the point…NO ONE HERE IN INDIA ARE LIVING UNDER STREET LIGHTS even in villages….am an indian, and i know well about it, nowhere in the wikipedia articles or anywhere else would it had been written that people in india live under street lights, so why are u just making false points…well, firstly, we have been looted until (1950 appr.)…getting a literacy rate of 75% from 12% in just 60yrs is a very great thing…we hav very gud infrastructure, and INDIA IS GOING THROUGH A RAPID DEVELOPMENT, infrastructure, roads, metros &c…. india is a superpower in all d industries…many multi national companies are attracted to India, it is a social nd economic hub.
it is in 1op 10 fastest growing GDPs and GDP per capita, poverty will surely b eliminated with present conditions here …Yo will find India excelling in all the fields by 2020…
on the other hand, here we dont get sluts, we hav true love, not lyk western countries changing bfs and gfs every day, v dont marry multiple times here, v choose d perfect one in d beginning itself….v hav great history, and unity…!!!! PROUD TO BE AN INDIAN….

so how come most indians don’t know what toilet paper is ?

Kevin September 3, 2010 at 1:21 pm

@wasile petre

That is simply because Indians are higienic enough to wash with water, rather than wipe/dry with oilet paper. (washing with water is by the way more hygienic)

Indians always had enough water, they never had the need to search for alternatives.

anablee September 24, 2010 at 7:14 am

india government must be keeping all the money that is because indians are greedy, there religion is also outdated, life moves on peoples cultures change but they are stuck in a time warp. how they treat their women is like second class citizens, they have no freedom

you need to fight your greedy government and stopped being brainwashed by old fashioned religous lies which will keep you poor and hungry and unfree forever

M M Ali December 3, 2010 at 7:53 am

I know why many of them are so angry about India , because if you take a look at your fathers or grandfathers history you will come to know that they were thieves who stole a lot of wealth from India .

So think before you say something .

M M Ali December 3, 2010 at 8:06 am

How many countries can Indian politicians buy with their deposit in their swiss bank account . is it 50 or above ?

abhijeet April 2, 2011 at 8:56 am

india has enough food to feed half of the worlds population.the tea&coffee you drink,the sugar you consume are mostly of indian origin .though america&europe are more developed than us they are not the past india was not only the richest country but also a self sufficient country.had it not been india the world would not be able to count,speak human languages or talk about subjects like religion,philosophy,sciences,etc.most of our wealth was looted by the evil british who became rich by our wealth.americans and british are so ungrateful that they dont thank us for languages like english,latin,greek,etc which all evolved out of sanskrit-the mother of all indo-european languages.when europeans lived in forests and savagely ate raw meat we were living in brick houses and growing our own food.the main relegion in america,britain,franceand most major countries in the world is not native to them.on contrary india not only has its own culture and religions but it has also deeply influnced the culture of many other countries like china,japan,malaysia,etc
we bought our own goods and oil,did not loot other natons like arabian counties,the way america&britain did.l top the list.god is not blind.he is watching how britain and america have oppressed people for years.surely there wil come a time when india and asian countries will lead the world.those who have looted and oppressed people all over the world will have to repent for their evil deeds and that day is not too far.

IndianMukesh October 11, 2009 at 12:10 pm

Hello, Ms. pakistani,
How u saying all that, what about Pakistan I think condition of Pakistan is worst and India is many time rich than Pakistan ok. Next time after think then comment OK.

american pride October 14, 2009 at 3:40 pm

check this out miss pakistan. the only reason your taliban infested country continues to survive is because america gives you billions of dollors a year. your country needs the u.s. if it werent for us than your economy would collapse. how can a country be so weak by letting the enemy blow up its own people and still let those enemies live on there land. your military is a joke. please dont mention our military,cause we all know if we wanted your country it would only take about 2 days. im sorry that my military is so powerful that it can take over any country in world. hey lil miss india. your country needs alot of work, but you are one of the largest economies in the world. if somebody in india wants education they come to america, just like every other person in other countries do. people who speak about pakistan should atleast know some facts before discriminating the u.s, the only country in the world who gives hundreds of billions of dollors every year to countries around the world. if it wasnt for the u.s than alot of economies would fall apart.they need our aid to prosper. just look at how america with over 300 million people can still be one of the weathiest nations. no big populated country can acheive that. everyone in america has a good job,house,car and the opportunity to acheive greatness. maybe thats why we have a 14 trillion dollar economy. i might add that no other country even comes close to that margin. if u want your deams to come true,come to america. the best of everything. what other country can have a black,white,chinese,japanese,latin,muslim,russian,indian in the same room and not feel out of place.

Hey Indians November 9, 2009 at 4:31 am

HUH?! 4 Billion Indians? Are you sure you know what you are talking about?
And, if all what you guys said about Indians are correct, why most of my “Rich” Indian friends feel shame to identify themselves as Indians? they all prefer to live elsewhere and change their citizenship as soon as they can. Is that called National Pride? 🙂 🙂

By the way everyone India is poorer then Pakistan and I’m not saying that as a Pakistani or Muslim or even Asian I’m saying it because its a fact LOOK IT UP. ( This is a British Catholic speaking). You all have issues and I hate Indians and I find Pakistan o.k (i tought you should know). Has anyone noticed that Indians copy everything British and Americans do like movies, tv shows, lifestyle its like all indians want to be western! LOSERS!!!

even pakistans land belongs to india.where you live today is the land which was cradle of indian civilization.before 1947 lahore city had 54%hindu population witout considering sikhs and other non-muslims.dont forget about the RS.55 crore (just an approximate) that india gave pakistan after partition.SO WHOS THE REAL BEGGAR?

Boxer bhai June 16, 2011 at 5:01 am

@ indian mukesh
i really doubt u as an indian. Undr a fake name u must b either a british or american racist. Bustord cant u c, miss ayesha is speaking on Support of India, no indian will abuse her. Only a dougla 420 like u can do it

Australia October 8, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Some interesting facts:
1. Indians are the smelliest people in the world, due to their poor hygiene.
2. They eat with their hands off the floor.
3. Yes they do have some billionaires, however, very few compared to USA and other superpowers.
4. They have slums and are underdeveloped, and that is why people flee from their own country and come to BETTER countries such as Australia, USA, etc.
4. I have an Indian friend and have told him all of this and he can attest to its truth. So all you Indians stop being in denial.
5. Cricket is a gay ass sport.
6. Indians are very persistent. They spend all day on the phone making cold calls, which lets be honest they suck at to make two sales. I could make these two sales in to minutes. No wonder they have to work such long hours! i.e 7/11
7. Indians are good at working for long periods of time with a minuscule supply of water, food and money. This is their genetic make up and that is why they are going to be doing this until the end of time.
8. Indians on this website are o proud that India WAS a superpower. This is irrelevant. No one cares. Honestly, does anyone care about the greek or roman empire anymore? It’s ancient history.
9. Indians invented the decimal point and trigonometry, however it was the Greeks that created mathematics. Conclusion: The Indian discovery is irrelevant.
10. Indian will not be a superpower so get over it. They have a population of over a billion and most Indians are too uneducated to even know. As the population increases so will the poverty in India. It just means more call centres, more hours of work and more workers getting paid less and less. Maybe one day the lucky Indian or to will get a raise to 30 cents an hour.

Peace. Namaste.

This is just an informative article and by no means necessary are these facts bias or aim to influence any parties. I have just collated real data from real industry experts. People that argue the facts of this article are not patriotic and are trying to navigate away from the truth. Any Indian that argues the truth of this article is not a real Indian because he is lying to himself and everyone else on the internet. May peace be with you.

Hemant August 15, 2012 at 10:30 am

@Australia…hey u AUS aborigine….someone known as Kailash Singh wanted to enter into the records book by not bathing for years and become the smelliest…IT DOESNT MEAN INDIANS ARE THE SMELLIEST….there are many african countries, central american, east asian countries which are the smelliest…!!!! it is just lyk if sum1 in AUS eats 5 kilos of human shit, all aussies cant b called shit eaters….aint it ryt…???

LOL February 24, 2010 at 2:40 am

Just because you’re economy is large it doesn’t make your country the greatest in the world.

Lets look at India in the spotlight.
1. Your cities are dirty
2. If the government looks after its own people they why are there so many poor people living off the streets and sleeping near garbage bins.
3. Why are Indians leaving India and migrating to other countries to find a better life.
4. If India is the best in the world, then why isn’t your country ever make it to the top 10 best cities in the world list or the top 10 most liveable cities list?
5. If you country is the best in the world, then why isn’t your country ever win a gold medal the commonwealth games, summer & winter olympic games?

Just because you have the biggest army it doesn’t make you powerful, but the coalition will kick your curry ass any day of the week.

Singaporeboi December 13, 2009 at 11:44 pm

This message is to jes, the black Indian/African. I give you facts about Singapore, black jes.
1. Singapore made Asian history by having Obama visiting Asia for the first time to attend the APEC Summit 09′.
2. The country with the highest concentration of millionaires in the world. 10% last year and 9% this year.
3. The country with the highest concentration of drivers owning Mercedes and BMWs.
4. The country that has each citizen earning $51,226 a year.( 4th in the world now, my parents each earn more than that )
5. Go fuck yourself jes.

I’m not arguing with others but arguing only with jes! So don’t be angry at me for doin’ this but be angry wif jes for making me do this

jes December 14, 2009 at 2:09 am

u calling me black man u dont even know me.. maybe colour of my privates parts are fairer than u face and by the way u have only 5 qualities in singapore i have millions in my country canada if i start to tell u, and india and africa are not small countries like singapore if u wana see mercedees and bmw’s go to cyprus an island near greece u will undersand what means cars for u maybe the mercedees and bmw are the highest brands in cyprus people start with hummer and royal royce.
and if u talk about earnings an average waiter in america earns more than 40000/year and calculate it to ur singapore dollar, i myself working as accountant earns morethan 55000/year.

indian warrior December 19, 2009 at 1:35 pm

TJ February 1, 2010 at 4:57 am

foolish Singaporeans
last year your concentration of millionaires was 10% this year its 9%
it will decrease n decrease b’coz we are taking all your money
we were the richest in the world before 18 century now we are retaining our position
ass holes
am an indian and am proud about it
we have 4 brothers
just think if these countries wouldn’t have separated then the whole world would have fucked up
if these countries again come to their own original form which was before 1947 then the whole world would have to face our combined wrath
and when we see u Singaporeans and Chinese we think that these fools are sleeping .your eyes always remains closed
i would love to see India-Pakistan-Bangladesh-sri Lanka-and Afghanistan merge
the most powerful people are seen in these and from these 5 countries.
osama is from Afghanistan,LTTE,AL-Qaeda ,Lashkar-e-taiba etc.
in cricket also srilanka, India, Pakistan,and Bangladesh are included in the top 10 countries of the world
just think if we merge not a single country on this planet will be able to win against us
China,USA,UK(which is responsible for our separation)etc. no other country will be able to fight us.

sandyy May 27, 2010 at 1:07 pm

Me s May 23, 2010 at 3:57 pm

Yeh we are a poor country because when we got freedom in 1947 and aftrer that till now we fought about. 6-7 wars with neibour countries in defence we lost alot and we were ruled by England for 200 long Years and they took all our good stuff and money so that’s why we are poor we are still developing

Human Being February 13, 2011 at 12:35 pm

This was the comment I was waiting for.. After so many fights, this reason should be pondered over.. Americans, ask yourself- How was America 50 years after she got freedom? Compare it with India 50 years after her freedom you’ll find an answer. Britishers stole from India. Kohinoor belongs to India..
India has an unfortunate history. One should appreciate that it has come up at such a rapid pace.. Of course, we still face those problems today in the form of corruption, but then again, which country doesn’t? Every country is looking only to develop, not to dominate other countries (well, atleast, India doesn’t)

Human Being February 13, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I love both India and America. I love India because I’ve grown up here. I love America because it welcomes those who come there with open hearts.. The only people I hate are these racists here who desperately and pointlessly discriminate..

Boxer bhai June 16, 2011 at 4:50 am

Yes frnd! U r right. Outward looks cn b deciving. Thats reson why these white bustards criticize our india.
British r world’s biggst Thieves, they built their contry using our wealth.
Dear Indian frnds, jst imagine, Britishnrs took 200 YEARS to loot india of its wealth, but today in JUST 64 YEARS we became the 4th richest contry in the world (from the poorest one). Jst imagine, what ll happen after 136 YEARS (200yrs – 64yrs). Evn today, we made enough money to purchase that contry U.K. who robbed us to utter poverty tht time

so why all the poverty and slums? what is the government doing with all the profit money? why are they not looking after their people, well it will be not for long as the us is finally moving in on them

nisha October 2, 2010 at 10:44 am

m an indian and i agree with u Mr. eric… but india is not a poor country..the only problem is the distribution of resources and money among citizens of the country.. and that may be because of poor and selfish strategy and political disorders..and we indians are working over it..just wait and watch…we will repeat the history and get back the stardom to be called “the golden bird”..

vd March 16, 2011 at 5:46 pm

How many times have you ever read a post by an Indian calling your people animals? Are you just trolling here OR do you REALLY believe that we are nothing more than animals? If it is the second case, then let me try to correct you. We are NOT animals. We have evolved like you have.
If you are just trolling around here, then please find a job because it seems like you have a lot of free time to be thinking these bad things about Indians.

Tanmay May 22, 2011 at 3:01 pm

yehh and who’s that thanks to? the british robbed india from up to 1947, they took everything… britain and USA have prospered on the backs of the slave trade and exploiting other countries…100,000 indians died fighting for britain in world war II, and indians had nothing to do with it, the british didnt care about them being ‘animals’ when those ‘animals’ were being ordered to go out there and die for the white man… i actually pity your narrow minded thoughts, you never understand or care to learn about other peoples cultures, at least learn to respect it…

i am doing a project on poor countriaes and india is one of them so dont say that that poor ass country is rich so go root a farm amimal… Australia is the best dumbshits.

ramani September 8, 2009 at 2:01 am

hello…………… australia is not a country.its just a camp of few European people. its population is very much similar to that of a small Indian town . u should compare it with a indian town.Now india is the 4th largest economy in the world. without indian scientists, engineers NASA is dead. without indian doctors the whole world will be only the Indian brain drives the world.Australia is a village of wild & mannerless twoleged animals.India is a land having a great culture & civilisation of 10,000 years.when there was no creation of the rest of world at that time india was writing epics like ramayan & mahabharat. india had delivered the concept of ‘0’ 2 the world.india is going 2 rule the 21st century. worlds 40% english speaking population lives in india. if there is no indian, there is no software what u r using very cheerfully.the whole wolrd is astonished 2 see how there is democracy in india inspite of 1.2 billion the people from different religeon,community,language are staying united just like brothers. this is my india. mind it. jai ho!

jade November 3, 2009 at 8:18 pm

young man go to bed, i hope you get good grade your project, because if you don’t know indians are rich just that they are dirty people. i should know because i live with them.

but monetary wise,they are rich. have you ever in your poor life gave a woman a huge amount of money?that should be in your wildest dreams. just shut the f**@ up.

stanky November 30, 2009 at 9:48 am

Second Highest Population -India
Largest country in top five – India
Around 20-25 religion and Largest Democracy -India

Have your country all this things.
so don’t fu-ke here small country like.

LOL February 21, 2010 at 6:30 am

To Ramani, India maybe the 4th largest economy in the world but in what comparison does India have with Australia with liveability and economy?

Australia has a population of 22million people compared to India which is in the billion mark (of course you will out do us on the economy section because of your population)

Australia is booming with mining & natural resources. We hold 22% of the worlds uranium, our natural gas is about to boom with china signing a deal worth billions maybe trillions of dollars, the US, Asian and European countries have labelled us as the emerging “Energy Superpower” after the middle east. An average Australian owns either a 3 or 5 bedroom house or apartment.

Australia is a multi-cultural society, our government looks after us with excellent health care, housing, high income, job opportunities and our major top cities are one of the most liveable & best cities in the world. Where’s India on the list? oh sorry you dont qualify.

Compared to India, your people are living near garbage bins, your streets are littered with gargbage left, right and centre, your government fails to look after you and your own people, your murder and crime rates are higher, your government is one of the most corrupt in the world, your people are paid shit compared to an Australian. Indians come to Australia to study because Indian universities are crap. I have a alot of Indian friends who thinks India is a shit country and they now call Australia home and most of them live in a 5 bedroom house with a swimming pool and beautiful weather.

Oh and by the way, all Indians sound like fucking chickens “PACKOCK” because your English and Grammar sucks.

Alz February 21, 2010 at 11:13 am

OMG Australia, and rich hahaha. A couples of 10 – 20 Indians bank accounts in India = THE GDP OF AUSTRALIA PER ANNUM.
Ye, sure there are poor people, but the rich Indians, ahemm….can literally buy your continent if theY WANT TO. Who wants to buy an effin graveyard, HUH.

Swiss Bank accounts of Indians top the charts with the highest black money in the world. Its all coz of the TAX.
Many slumdogs in india have swissbank accounts to prevent tax on incomes, they look poor, but the fact is…..*cough*. Do some research, ull know.

And Aussies STFU, You guys hardly have any rich guys, all effing middle class mofos, even the indians there are middle class. I can bet india has more than 10million millionares, in US$ not in Rupees LOL. Its OBVIOUS.

And check out wikipedias richest people in the world list, NOT A SINGLE AUSTRALIAN, ITS SO EMBARRASSING FOR YOU GUYS.
I can find 22 million Indians that are richer than any australian….22 mill is ur population if your dumb enough not to know.
I love Da US more than india btw, but Aus, _|_NO.

Have a shower Indians February 27, 2010 at 11:19 pm

Alz, What is your argumentative topic being the 4th largest economy in the world? what problems have you solved regarding the state of your country? have you helped any of your people, especially the dividing culture of the rich and poor within your society?

Australia was built by many cultures and it’s highly regarded by many countries.

Indians have no answers on here what so ever but, give topics like, “We are the 4th largest economy in the world”, “Our ancient structures are the best in the world” blah blah blah blah blah.

Indians, were do you come in the ranks of the following:

1) Liveability 2)Health Care 3)Infrastructure 4)Quality of Life 5)Cost of Living 6)Safety and Risk 7)Leisure &? Culture 8)Environment 9)Climate

I can guarantee you that India doesn’t come near the top 10. So, before you chicken talkers start clucking away, fix your country, help your people, have shower and fix your so called democratic society first before you start bagging other countries out.

Don’t forget to fix your english and grammar before typing any comments on here because most of you dirty stinking Indians dont’ make any sense.

Oh and by the way, Australians will always kick your ass on any sport whether it’ll be in Commonwealth Games, Olympic Games and Cricket.

Didn’t Australia refuse to sell Uranium to India last year because you chicken talkers refuse to sign the Nuclear treaty??? thats right you can’t be trusted.

Australian cities will always do better than any Indian Cities. HAHAHAHAHA

ash March 1, 2010 at 10:56 am

i dont know why sheldon was asked to do some project on india and she thinks just to know few thinks about india would make her project go complete and whole world start thinking that yes what ever info she got it is the right picture of india .hahahhahaha.
hey you obese ass girl wake up and let me give you some update regarding your country .
i think she doesnt know the fact that virgin airlines/ holden/ qantas and even pie makers at one point in 2009 didnt have $$$ to pay off salaries .
How do sluts and pimps make some money ?

Hard working indians paying their taxes so that sluts/pimps in australia gets funds from govt to buy their bread .

How does other ass holes save their money ?

people to save money on their utilities bill show on papers that they are seperated from their partner. and they dont have money to feed their kids . so govt grant them rebates and discounts on their bills …..

what else you wanna know about your country sheldon.
Fortunately i am also doing a project on Australia and i know what your brother and sister do here, so next time if there is another word from your side related to india then ill have pages to write.

Take care

If india is poor country than why did British people came to india? India was a richest country in the world, we had kohinoor diamond, the british army stole it,whatever we had was stole by british government, Still you said wer are poor, ask your ancestor who we are, At the time of Mughal rule India was the super power, no one can dare to attack India at that time.
If British govt would not have came, then india is the super power in all fields. There would be no poverty, there would be no chance to any one abuses to us. InshaAllah once again India will be super power and india can rich its glory once again InshAllah.

Singaporeboi December 12, 2009 at 9:09 pm

Hey shakeel khan lovesindia, don’t be stupid. The British invaded India last time becaused they are rich, not-well prepared army and has low-defence. The British took advantage of that and they invaded India easily. India wasn’t ready for invasions last time. They were stupid. Rich, but careless. That’s why British invaded India

K March 5, 2010 at 8:56 pm

IF I am not wrong, it is the other way around sir, foriegn men are doing that to your women and leaving large amount of Bastards in India. isnt that a known fact happening to your housemaid women working in the middle east?

nisha March 5, 2011 at 9:41 am

I disagree, I think that India have the most beautiful people. It is not nice to be critical of others. I live in the US, which is a beautiful country. Let us not be found acting other than ourselves. Remember God made us all, there is no big “I” and little “you”. We may have difference of opinions, but we don’t have to be so harsh to one another.
If you are educated like you see, than act like it. Educated people don’t talk foolish talk.

Ok Guys as far as concern you are true about India is not the richest country in the world cause of lack of responsibility and etc etc
however it is amaze that this country is still running without system. Don’t you guys see that the system is changing and I am sure that youngster in India are coming up fast and not sticking up with their race caste and all shitty stuff. I have really seen lots of changes in India Guys. I am not saying cause i favoring them , I am telling you the truth. Before I use to underestimate India , well right now I admire them cause some youngster are coming up with brilliant ideas and innovating themselves towards there goals the have the largest working population in the world. All of them are qualify doctors scientist psychologist astronauts. Half of NASA workers are Indians guys.

Don’t brag about your country, others are better countries than yours! For example, Singapore gained independence in 1965 or 1964 or whatever in the 60s. Since gaining independence and have lack of natural resources, like water. Singapore does not have any oil reserve and miraclly, Minister Mentor of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew, ( Oldest politician and the longest-serving minister in the world ) and his group of party transformed Singapore into a global hub. Singapore is currently hosting the APEC Summit 2009.

ritesh February 10, 2010 at 7:08 am

little population ,little area !
what will you find easy ..
1.arranging items on your table
2.managing the whole town .
singapore is a small country ..thats really not a big deal if u claim singapore to be better than other countries !
india and china are the worlds largest populations ..!
see how they are running their country ! sometimes its difficult to find singapore on the atlas !

aditya June 13, 2011 at 11:30 pm

correct i’m agree with ritesh , singapore is a small and weak country.

Ca June 9, 2010 at 6:47 am

For your kind info do you know why Singapore developed so fast…’s because they followed a typical communist model….Newspapers were controlled,no body could go against the govt etc ….after these steps obviously a country is bound to develop…that’s how even UAE or even china developed

But in india we didn’t follow this and we gave our public freedom and though we could nt be rich we certainly hav a lot if freedom nd we are very happy

Defender of India July 31, 2011 at 1:29 am

Stupid Singaporeans! You think you are very great! Let me remind you that you are all Buddhists and Buddhism originated in India, so that means Indians are superior to you because you have converted to our religion. So shut up and get rid of your arrogance!!!!!!!!!

alrite bitches ,indian ,australian and butt head singaporian.Firstly yes india as a country is rich and if ur talking about the poor ,its true there are rich ,middle class and poor people,its a fact and cant be denied.Now australia is a country of convcts and murderers ,criminals were sent there and confined to what was then called a GOD FORSAKEN island.And yup dont be proud of that shit .probably ur grandparents were confined there for raping,robbing or even killing someone think about it.And finally to fucking singaporian .I have been to that fucked up country ,the only thing u have a good infrastructure ,loads of lady boy who according to u make 50000$ sleeping around .May be ur parents sleep around too when they tuck u in bed .No wonder their salary combined is huge .And u country is one of the smallest countries in the world .Ur sisters or girls act fucking rich ,but actually downing a torn bra or panty.YELLOW sking fungus mother fuckers .Ask me how i know that ,becoz u motherfuckers come over here to canada and act like us .Have u seen ur flat faced ,stinky breath,button eyes in the mirror.I bet my dick looks better than ur face and ur whole fucking country .And yes ask ur fucking people not to come to canada.I think indians and australians are better ,than a fucking MALAY .My country CANADA may not be the top 10 richest in the world but we belong to the G7 and india belongs to the G20.I have a lot of indian friends here and they’re cool.Not like u stuck up asians .I WOULD LOVE TO ASSOSIATE myself with an indian ,rather look at a butt head asian (that includes ur flat face singaporian .) send u mother here ,probably after 9 months u’ll have a baby sister or brother .

ermias February 18, 2010 at 5:06 am

you are right to some extent that India showed a great progress at momment but if we see over all India is omongest the poorest country. India has a lot of natural resources but the poulation of India is very huge of that the GDP`s of the country is not sutisfied to all Indians. India has a great potential to be amongest the richest countries. besides this India has very great educated human resources.

Richness of a nation can only be evaluated by how many of its population is content with how much of the basics they can afford to live comfortably. If you have been to the cities in India, you will note hundreds of thousands of homeless people living off the streets and begging for money at every street corner. With a population of well over 1 billion people, India is the second most populous nation in the world. According to UN-HABITAT, India is home to 63% of all slum dwellers in South Asia. This amounts to 170 million people, 17% of the world’s slum dwellers. India’s per capita income, although rising, rank’s it 124th in the world. This low per capita income is one factor that marks the sharp divide between India’s wealthiest and poorest citizens. Approximately 35 percent of India’s 260 million people (a group almost equal to the entire population of the United States) still earns $1 or less a day. And according to the United Nations, 70 million people earn less than $2 a day.

mona July 23, 2011 at 11:00 am

In India no body fix somebody’s problem. Mukesh ambani can be richest in the world but he do not care. If you want to get out of slum you find ways.
If possible indian’s try to run out from India and settle whereever they can. They keep on missing india and will generate other India wherever they are. I am in Califronia it is like india but will not go back. I don’t want to die in nursing home here and cannot go home so I don’t know what to do.

mona July 23, 2011 at 10:53 am

Whatever cloth you buy from India and wash it it will loose color and will spoil other cloths too. Sooo fact is if you buy from India wash it separate or don’t buy . Indian’s you find in whole world why? usually people don’t like to leave their country.

Proud to b Indian September 10, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Mr. Bett for your kind information we are hardworking Indian that’s why you can find our brother in every part of the world. As concerned about our country our country is not poor country we are devolving country and we proud to be Indian. Yes we’ve some area where our country is lacking but it doesn’t mean that anybody can abuse us. That’s our problems and we gonna solve them. And mr. so I am giving some facts about India just goes thru them and then save your own but… by reading them…

India never invaded any country in her last 100000 years of history.
When many cultures were only nomadic forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization)
The name ‘India’ is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. The Aryan worshippers referred to the river Indus as the Sindhu.
The Persian invaders converted it into Hindu. The name ‘Hindustan’ combines Sindhu and Hindu and thus refers to the land of the Hindus.
Chess was invented in India.

Thanks! I read it all and I am happy to say that I learned a lot of new things about India and the world 🙂

kate November 29, 2009 at 7:37 pm

ummm… could you please like not write so much

jade November 3, 2009 at 8:29 pm

you are a сукасын. you are an ignorant fool if you are thinking that africa is poor? you should infact ask about your lineage, because fools like you don’t know were they come from. am proud to be an african. but you,destituted. IDIOT

To: Jade November 8, 2009 at 7:13 pm

Hey you , Jade, you are rich…Rich… And I know it… Cuz Africans that own cars and computers with Internet connection are F*cking rich . But, if you would change your whole money to American Currency/Singapore’s currency, I bet you wouldn;t be rich anymore. If you buy a $300,000 house in Singapore, you’ll get about 120 square feet house with 3 or 4 bedrooms, 1 living room, a kitchen and a toilet. Britney’s Spears mansion, a $7.5 million dollars mansion,35,000 square feet, is equivilant to a 8,000 square feet house in SIngapore. So Jade, you can be a rich in Africa, a bit rich in America, but no rich in Singapore. If you go to SIngapore, you want to go back to Africa cuz here is expensive.( + 7% GST ) For us it’s cheap cuz we are already used to it. An extra large pizza from Pizza Hut will cost $50 Singapore Dollars. And here, we have lots of kind of people, the Chinese( not from China ), the Malay( Not Malaysians ) , the Indians( Not from India ), Westerners, ( They are Singaporeans )some Filipino workers, Indonesian workers, Indian national workers, Middle-east workers, Chinese national workers and about 40% of foreigner workers here are from USA, Europe,Canada, UK ( excluding Ireland ) Australia/NZ. If you visit Singapore, you’ll find a lot of type of people. The main Languages here are : English, Chinese, Malay, Tamil, Arabic. So Jade, don’t think of living or working in Singapore. Most crimes here are not from Singaporeans, but foreigners from Philippines, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Africa ( Drug smuggling ) and lastly, Malaysia. Indian nationals rarely commit crimes here, but the thing is, they like to stop in the middle of the way blocking others! DONE

Singaporeboi December 13, 2009 at 11:26 pm

HAHAHAHA stupid jes. Old cars in Singapore??? You’re kiddin’. If you go to Singapore, don’t be surprised if you see ferraris, lambos, BMW, Mercedes, Porshe or any kind of super cars near a shopping mall or at the carpark of a neighbourhood place. 10% of the population of Singapore are millionaires! Stupid Jes. I think you’re a black Indian as you pronounce Singapore as Singapur. That’s what Indians call Singapore – Singapur. Both my mum and my dad drives a Mercedes while my brother drives a BMW 750i. My sister shares the same car as my mum. I’m the youngest in my family. I can’t drive yet as I’m not at the right age yet. Go fuck yourself, black Indian who is currently using the name ”Jes”.

Singaporeboi December 13, 2009 at 11:28 pm

BTW, Singapore means Lion City. Singa means lion and pore means city. It’s was founded by a British guy named Raffles and named after an Indonesian.

Hey you said Ireland having the largest marker of computer software in the world ruins the article. I happen to be Irish and my I.C.T knowledge is away above average so please don’t say things about my country that your not sure about perhaps the U.S, Japan and China has more powerful computer software than Ireland but i happen to know for a fact that Ireland is the most advanced country in Europe.

Unknown April 17, 2010 at 8:06 am

Wooow lots of arguments i believe many of the opinions are right India do know a lot about computer software but they are NOT the riches country many of their people live in slums and by the garbage.

US is not the greatest and the riches country of all and if their army was so great how come the can’t even defeat on man or at least find him it shows that their army is so pathetic. They are not the kindest country and I’m sure that what they have donated to other countries has helped them in many ways. They show how evil they can when they are blowing up houses and killing families of small children and babies and that is a fact u cannot deny. If you don’t believe it (this is to mr american pride) then look it up i’m sure you will find something.

Indians so not copy everything i mean look at america and how they steal other people’s cultures such as kill bill i mean is karate and such fighting skill from america from US NO, the have US rappers and rnb singers which originated from BLACK PEOPLE.

well that’s what i think

mehdi August 17, 2011 at 3:02 am

robert saint amour May 25, 2008 at 2:22 pm

this is the most ridiculous list i’ve ever seen

the usa with 45 million people without medicare is among the poorest nations on the planet, both morally and financially

Roman May 26, 2008 at 1:47 am

I agree with you Robert – the US has got to have one of the worse medicare in the planet. I’ve lived most of my life in Europe – and about a year in the US. When it comes to medical aid I’d choose Europe any time!
But speaking financially – Having everyone sign up for a medical insurance is a great way of pumping money into the economy. Too bad that in my opinion people’s health is not something you can play with!

Jake July 15, 2009 at 10:16 pm

well stay in europe then. keep paying taxes so your arab and african invaders can free health care.

john June 16, 2011 at 5:17 pm

oh ya u americans not only give money to pakistani’s to help them but to instigate terrorism ..but b careful americans u don’t know what our pakistani and afganisthan neighbours are capable of …U might say that u can invade pakistan in two but after that the very survival of u will be in great danger china and all other muslim counties support them bow to us or v’ll make u .

Medicare November 8, 2009 at 6:53 pm

How bout’ Singapore??? When a patient leaves the clinic, the patient won’t leave with empty hands, the patient will leave with medicines – Yes, medicines in the clinic. It usually cost $20+ ( Singapore Dollars, $15 if changed into US currency) If you go to the clinic, don’t expect it to be cheap! – Singapore is one of the most expensive cities/countries in the world!

Hey Roman November 8, 2009 at 7:30 pm

I’m proud to be a Singaporean. 8.5% of the population of Singapore are millionaires! The highest percentage in the world!!!!!

so get the hel out o fthe US we dont want your dome ass motherfuckers in our country

CanadianMan September 1, 2009 at 5:54 pm

Your very retarded. USA couldn’t whip out all of Europe without a shitload of countries attacking them. USA relies on Nukes. Nukes create danger to the ecosystem. you live in a ecosystem if it’s removed you die faster. Canada doesn’t need USA’s help either. USA beginning the largest in debt make’s it the poorest. notify that USA isn’t the greatest it has nice Regions & People. But your Goverment is a pile of coporate bullshit. Privatized Healhcare isn’t the way to go. Make it better for you. log off and make yourself a responsible american. We don’t need people like you in the world. If you wanted to do something get money and buy countries like what you did with Alaska instead of taking it away from Mexico in 1847.

WandiniBoricua June 18, 2010 at 4:15 pm

In total agreement with Canadian Man….to think I was born is US territory, but most Americans are in denial or they won’t ACCEPT truth. We live in Babylon. Our Government sucks brass balls, like anyone in power, at the end of the day comes down to GREED.

Politicians promise the world and never deliver, go figure. The sufferers are the people. We have good and bad every where and I don’t like to generalize but when you hear the ignorant–don’t you just want to bitch slap them?

james December 5, 2010 at 10:17 pm

i am an american and yes we do have idiots like some people on here 99% are nice, but like most countries it is that 1% most of the time that runs our countries makes it hard on everyone else i think it is them 1% that have greed that makes me want to leave this nation.

Ofentse May 8, 2009 at 6:43 am

I agree with you Robert that america is the poorest in terms of the morality and as for the australians’ comments, it just shows how inconsiderate you are to another human-being’s economic or social standing. If ‘australia’ is so much better than India their citizens wouldn’t conduct themselves as you do. Economics doesn’t determine how great a country is the people do…by the sound of things it would be advisable for everyone to visit india because of the passion and politeness Dine and Hanesh show.

Hey Indians November 9, 2009 at 4:45 am

You stupid Indian. Dine and Hanesh are not polite, asshole

mark May 26, 2008 at 6:41 am

This list is based on GDp per capita which is a measurable amount, the fact speak for themselved. So, to call this list ridiculous is like calling the fortune 500 list ridiculous. If it just IS, you cannot call it ridiculous!

Roman May 26, 2008 at 8:07 am

GDP per capita is indeed a measurable amount – I haven’t made this list up. If I did, I’d probably put Estonia (that’s where I live) in number 1 spot 😈

Roman May 27, 2008 at 9:02 am

It actually depends on who’s statistics you believe. According to IMF (International Monetary Fund) Qatar is #1, according to the World Bank and CIA World Factbook – it’s #2.
This list is made from information obtained from the CIA World Factbook.
One thing is sure however – Qatar is rich 😈

What about Vatican City? It’s considered to be its own country. I wonder how much the pope makes?

Roman May 31, 2008 at 1:30 pm

Vatican has a national income of about 250 million USD/year.
However I think that they hold a majority of their financial assets offshore.
The pope is in a sense the richest person in the world – he can pretty much do whatever he wants for free. He has churches all over the world that in a sense belong to him.

Blobby November 27, 2010 at 4:04 am

Churches belong to God
not a measly human being which half the world has doubts on

Smith June 1, 2008 at 4:19 am

Do my eyes deceive me, or is England not on this list?
If the latter then the CIA World Fact-book need to revaluate their facts -seriously.

Elin June 2, 2008 at 9:11 pm

Luxembourg isnt that rich in reality as on paper though, the reason is that there’s ALOT of people who live in other countries work in Luxembourg, and just drive over the border and work there. As they live in other countries they’re forced to tax to the country they actually live in.

So there’s alot more people contributing to the GDP then there’s actually living there. Reality is if you ytavel there is that it’s a country just like France and nothing else really, your not going to find bus drivers who take in 80.000$ a year. If you go to Norway though, you’ll find that most people actually earn atleast 55.000$. Huge diffrence.

Elin, I have also been to Luxembourg for at least 5 times in the past few years since a member of my family works there for the EU.
I agree, that it is very similar to France but numbers are numbers! Luxembourg is rich 🙂

Ghandi April 17, 2010 at 7:01 pm

No Luxembourg is so rich because the contry works as a safe haven for rich people who want to ignore paying tax!!

Stephen June 8, 2008 at 3:02 pm

Hay Im 12! But this list makes alot of sence to me. Norway is rich from oil. Yet the gas is 11 dollers a gallon! lolololol!!!

Silo December 27, 2008 at 11:29 pm

nop Mr steph, you got the wrong information, Am Norwegian and in Norway we buy a liter of gas at 13 kroner, so if its a gallon its 39 kroner which is almost 7 us dollars, to make sure check the prices on the internet..Norway is not an industrialized country, but we have a lot of gas, fish, n some companies which build ships…But with a small population of about 4,7 million people,, Norway is a small country n is not that known…But one of the richest!!

johhnno February 6, 2009 at 7:56 am

Norway is a good country, you may earn a lot but earning $55K there is like somoene earning $25k in France. that is me factoring cost of living.

wasile petre June 10, 2010 at 8:58 am

Don’t tell them man! you’ll get millions of indians and pakis coming to Norway now..

Kim August 22, 2010 at 7:44 pm

“Don’t tell them man! you’ll get millions of indians and pakis coming to Norway now..”

Too late their already here, loundering money at fast food joints and leeching of our wealth.
Just like the kikes driving the new world order wants it. Most Norwegians are dossile, ignorant and obliviuos to this. The ones who speak up are labeled racist. The new world order has arrived. We are slowly becoming a basterdized people here. Immigrants get $50.000 when getting their citizenship. Fuck immigrants, fuck the NWO and the kikes who are destroying the beauty of our different races and people in the world.

harjit March 31, 2012 at 10:06 am

Mc Funkay J Dog June 8, 2008 at 3:08 pm

Norway rocks!!!!! Woo Hoo!! Norway!!!!

Stephen June 8, 2008 at 3:10 pm

Why are gas prices that high in norway? Roman, Your smart, Do you no why?

Roman June 8, 2008 at 3:45 pm

Norway is a country with extremely high salaries. If you look at how much they get paid vs how much they spend for gas then it doesn’t look so bad!
Norway also has extremely high taxes – they make up most of the gas prices!

Maresz September 8, 2008 at 2:30 pm


in fact the Norwegians made a conscious decision in the 60s to keep domestic energy prices on par with the globally prevailing price level. Thus recognising that whats in the ground is not really @free@ unlike the arabs and latin americans seem to think.
Thanks to this decision, together with ptting a large part of their oil income in reserves, they are not waisting energy and have managed to avoid dutch disease, when the rest of the economy disintegrates because everything goes to the oil sector.
IMHO NOrway is the tru richest country in the world – their national oil fund has over 50t dollars per capita, no budget deficit, no government debt, high and rleatively uniform income for most people, 2% unemployment… When oil and brains meet…

Stephen June 18, 2008 at 4:24 pm

So gas being 11 dollers a gallon in Norway, the people there dont really care about the price? Its also kind of strange concidering their country is one of the countries with the the most oil in Europe!

Roman June 18, 2008 at 10:43 pm

Yes, its a bit strange that the country with a lot of oil has one of the highest gas prices in Europe.
Another reason why this is happening is that Norway is very keen on saving the environment. High taxes on gas makes it possible to give back to the environment to lessen the effects from pollution which are inevitable when using gas.

Silo December 29, 2008 at 12:28 pm

Don’t let these people feed u wrong information, we don’t buy a gallon of gas at 11 dollars….check for your self, we buy it at almost 7 dollars, and 11

George July 4, 2008 at 1:59 am

Hey Roman, I just graduated university with a business degree. I live in vancouver canada. Where can i work to make lots of money. Vancouver doesn’t pay recent grads very well and i want to buy a condo here. the only way to do that is to make money. How can i make a lot of money in a foriegn country and come back home and live modestly without worrying about paying the bills.

Roman July 4, 2008 at 6:52 am

It depends what you are good in and what you would like to do with your life!
For instance I like marketing and personal finance so I started this website where I write about things related to money and finance and my plane is to also make some money with ads!
So it pretty much depends on what you set your mind to!

Wapangapo December 27, 2008 at 11:58 pm

True that!!

danial khaling July 6, 2008 at 1:04 am

I don’t see many welathy economies in the list .
Britian contributes a lot of money to many third world countries It has got to be wealthy as a member of G8 But it is nowhere in the list. China is emerging as the fastest growing economy and probably the seond wealthiest in GDP But why is china not in the top ten welathy list. I am surprised.And also India is not in the list.

Roman July 6, 2008 at 4:43 am

In terms of total wealth you are probably correct – Britain, China and India are very rich. That’s because they are large countries with a lot of people.
GDP per capita however measures “how rich a country is” by taking all the money a countries economy produces and divides it by the number of people living in that country. This way you will get a somewhat honest picture how much extra wealth a person living in that country produces.

China and India have a lot of money but when you divide it between more than 1 billion people living in these countries you will not have much left. In fact in the list China is 30 and India 126th. Britain is in the 20th place!

If you would just look how much a country makes without taking into account the amount of people living there China would be the 4th largest economy in the world, UK the 5th and India 12th.
The more people live in a country the greater potential for a larger economy!

Silo December 27, 2008 at 11:37 pm

nice and straight forward answer!

sambhu tuladhar July 6, 2008 at 1:08 am

If I ever get a holiday I am going to Luxembourg and work there in the bank if I could fine a job there. The Bus drivers may not take $80000 home but there may be people taking millions and some may be taking less then 50000. GDP is total income divided by the population.As simple as that.

Roman July 6, 2008 at 4:43 am

A member of my family actually works in Luxembourg and I can tell you this – they do indeed get paid really good over there!

K March 5, 2010 at 9:11 pm

Hi ROman,
Something struck me and want to hear your view, Why do you think those Arab nations are always on the Richest list but never on any lists of The happiest or the best walfare? do you know where their money go to?

Roman March 7, 2010 at 7:48 am

I am pretty sure that it is because the Arab countries have huge inequalities among the people – there is a small number of ultra rich billionaires who can do whatever they want and then there are a lot of people who have to spend their days in poverty.
So on average the countries are rich but there are large populations of unhappy and poor people living there!

PEER SHA April 8, 2010 at 4:54 pm

Roman you are wrong, I have been to Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman. All these countries are super rich and they are all spreading their wealth to the population, building infrastructures, etc… In fact, the west Middle East is under construction and don’t 1/4 of skyscrapers in the world are found in Middle East. People are very happy, kind and well educated. Poverty is becoming rare but I am talking only about those Arab countries with immense resources. See by yourself.

However, Arabs that don’t have resources are poor and sometimes corrupt like in a part of Europe, the western is developed and eastern developing.

Blobby November 27, 2010 at 4:15 am

this answer just made your knowledge fall a long way down now all the comments of yours i read earlier could are starting to look . . .

Maria July 14, 2008 at 1:57 am


I am Diana from Sweden but currently I work in Qatar in the education city. It is completely true that Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world. If you come to Qatar, you will see most of Qatari people wear Gucci, Versace and Luis Vuitton wherever you go. Moreover, the place where I live, each house has at least two modern cars and it is normal there. In deed Qatari people are the kindest people I’ve ever seen in my life. They are so helpful. If I had to choose between Sweden and Qatar to spend the rest of my life in, I would choose Qatar.

Roman July 14, 2008 at 2:31 pm

Nice to get some comments from people actually living in some of the richest countries in the world!

Roman July 23, 2008 at 3:57 pm
M.Kashif Malik July 27, 2008 at 11:33 am

I just want to know that how much a person can get hourly in sweden as it is the neighbouring country of norway which is nominated a rich country by you.And also tell me which country is best to live england or sweden? in any way..i,e: more wages,living expenses,studies etc.. Thanks

Roman July 31, 2008 at 6:54 am

How much you can make hourly in Sweden is entirely up to what kind of work you are doing and how good you are at it.
According to statistics the average pay in Sweden is about 13 Euros an hour (20 dollars).

If you can’t speak Swedish then England is a better country for you to live – because you already speak English!
People in Sweden generally speak English, but it is very difficult to get a good job if you do not speak Swedish!

M.Kashif Malik July 27, 2008 at 11:40 am

I am surprised you didn’t you spoke about Germany in the rich countries…..? I think it is more rich than England….

Roman July 31, 2008 at 6:48 am

Yes, Germany is a very rich country but in terms of how much an average person generates wealth it does not make the top 10. It is in the 21st place while England(which was also absent from the list) is number 20.
The problem with Germany is that east Germany which used to be a communist country during the Cold War era is a lot poorer than the west part of the country. That brings their average down a bit.

Actually it can.
Imagine that you are living in the same house with Bill Gates. You have only 2 dollars but Bill has 100 billion dollars.
On average you would both have 50 billion and 1 dollar…
So anything is possible statistically 👿

alan October 3, 2008 at 11:54 am

hey come on man, you have paradoxly accept my point of view…I think you dont quite understand the word richest, wealthiest, most developed…in my opinion whether the country is rich, wealthy and well developed can be measured by HDI ( and let see where is your Equatorial Guinea 😉 No, really, I dont want to take offense on your web, you did a good job, this ranking is also on every website I have been to..but all I want to say that, this ranking has nothing to do with richest, wealthiest, most developed countries.

P.S.: I know, how to calculate the average, but what you said about the house and Bill Gates, thats the thing I want to point out here..that when you have in one house a few billionaires pulling the average up, that does not mean that the whole house is rich, thats the first thing…the second thing is that just by GDP per capita you cannot measure the richness, prosperity and the level of development of the country.

Roman October 3, 2008 at 2:01 pm

I agree with you that this list does not contain the most developed countries in the world. This list contains the richest countries in the world and these 2 things don’t have to be the same. You can have a developed country that is not very rich and vice versa.
That is exactly the case with Equatorial Guinea – on average it is a very rich country but it is only the 127th highly developed country in the world.

Wapangapo December 27, 2008 at 11:52 pm

alan October 4, 2008 at 6:26 pm

ok, but then we have to define the word “rich”, because for me, rich means also wealthy and developed, and of course the gap between poor and rich must not be so large..

Last time I checked India is in Asia.
But to be a bit more honest the reason why India is not in this list is because you have a lot of people in your country.
India is a rich country but when you divide all the money between everybody in India – everyone will only have a little bit.
This TOP 10 Rich countries of the world list represents the countries with the most money per person.

Shaun November 23, 2009 at 9:35 am

Hi – Norway, the UK & Europe

This list is what its all about. – How much money a country has. I’ve got two Degrees in Geography and Economics and in truth all of this stuff about GDp is bollocks. People dont actually have that porportion of the countries money to spend… it would be like saying an 80 year old with £2, ooo,ooo is richer than an 20 year old man because in theory he has more money to spend is each of the remainig years of his life! So when you say how rich a country is ity should be judged by how much money thay have in total.

Also I’m shocked by the ‘smugness’ of many to find that the UK is outside of the top ten when you look at GDP. As I’ve said IT IS the 5th richest in the world in terms of ACTUAL WEALTH not GDP. London and the UK is the financail centre of the world, hence why it has been so effected by the current economic downturn, We have had the strongest currency for decades and will do once agian after this global credit crunch.

Also the UK is part of Europe – In fact it’s the second richest country in Europe after Germany and slightly richer than France. The UK, along with France, Germany and the richer countries of Europe all contribute into a pot and receive less money back as this pot is alloctaed to the poorer countries. I’m sick and tired of norweigians going on about how much oil and shit they’ve got… They won’t join Europe because they know that they’ll have to distribute some of their wealth to the poorer European countries. Norway is happy to be part of the EC (EEA) so it can enjoy free trade and all of the other benefits of the EU but not actually put anything into it. Rather selfish if you ask me. I love the idea of the EU to bring peace and prosperity to the whole of Europe and ignorrant selfish countries like Norway and reaping the benefits of a scheme and putting nothing in! So as for Norway is so good with its oil reserves and helps the environment etc… what about helping the other countries of Europe like the other rich countries of Europe are doing.

As to say that Norway has no National/Government debt and rub it in the UK’s face is distgusting. In the last 12 months we have spent a lot in an attemot to stimulate our economy. However, the main reason for our debt was WWII! We were part of the victourious allies and helped many European countries re-occupy their own countries after thay had fallen to the Germans. We got in debt helping them to rebuild their countries and I think people forget that sometimes. Also, countries like Switzerland benefited from a lot from Nazi gold and bank deposits from deceased Jews. So all of you Neutral countries who go on about how we shouldnt go to war and UK is so bad etc…. Evil Prevails when good men stand by and do nothing!

In addition, the UK and Germany are some of the biggest donors of cash to third world countries and togther with France and Spain put a lot of resources into other functionable and vital organisatoins such as NATO and the UN.

First of all, if you are implying that norway stayed neutral during ww2, you are wrong.
second, Norway gives an average of 1.06% of their GDP to charity, which is alot more than USA and Germany combined. so you cant really call norway selvfish in any way.
Third, norway also suffered economic losses after ww2. The government decided that rebuilding the country was top priority. this was before the they found oil, so they had to consider themselves first.

Go back to school idiot…

Marian Rivera December 3, 2009 at 1:09 pm

I strongly agree that INDIA is a poor country, i watched different kinds of documentaries tackled about the hunger, over populated, pollution and mismanaged politics.. honestly, ive been there for only 1 day to give some help for the less fortunate.. i find that people eating from garbage.. and the smell of indians.. WTF.. it makes me vomit.. Im sorry.. Im honest person and that the info about INDIA when ive been there (i dont want to go back).

Based on Pulse Asia Survey..

Indians is the most Ugliest people in Asia aside from their poor hygiene.

Thats All

Zetti December 8, 2009 at 5:45 pm

you are so ignorant. Y0U are the ugliest person in the world so don’t talk. Y0U probably got some disease and look retarted.

Mercenary December 11, 2009 at 4:16 am

I don’t know which country you belong to but your country either had failed to impart any culture to you or your are just too hideous of person to pursue it. I just think when your helping those less fortunate people around the global your only patronizing them. I wonder how much good looks helps when it comes to being a beautiful person with kind heart. Your message just establishes the fact that your mind is too swallow & dirty even though you come from affluent & clean country.

Julina Magtanggol December 17, 2009 at 12:12 pm

Im also from india, lets face it my fellow indians.. most of the companies in our county are came from america because the american companies pay a cheaper salary on our employer, they tried to build their companies to help us.. i believe that our country is poor. Lets face it. Thanks marian, i agree with your comment.

cat and mane January 22, 2010 at 11:41 am

she’s from the philippines for sure. know why? the name she used, user’s name rather is the name of philippines’ famous actress. i know them because im from philippines. we can speak english well unlike other asians, just stating the fact. though, i love my country, i can say (in my opinion) my country’s one of the poor countries in asia.

Nick February 27, 2010 at 10:55 pm

Agreed! I believe its because Indians are the most selfish people in the world. Explains why they don’t wear deodorant and don’t care how bad they smell.

They may have come up with the idea of the Pythagorean theorem but no one will give them credit because they didn’t share it with anyone. The guy that came up with it probably tried to make a profit of it but failed.

When arguing with Indians they always bring up ancient facts that makes their country great. No Indian here has yet explained why so many people are starving and homeless. I’ve met Indians that blame their government for all the countries problems. Or blame the British for stealing their diamonds. But today’s economies are not based on diamonds, its based on productivity.

I’ve never heard of an Indian charity. Do they exist? Are there any efforts to teach the homeless useful skills?

So Indians, take some fucking responsibility and improve your “democratic” country instead of infesting the internet with your shitty disrespectful English.

ccbngfjbg nfcnvvgf March 19, 2010 at 7:38 pm

oh my god, u r such a selfish person. it is true that indians were richer before the british came. it was one of the most richest country. and if there blaming their government, it is right. i mean, wat is the government doing about three quarters of india diving into poverty. the indians take so much responsibility, they protest, they take care of their children. no wonder india has such a great population. nobody dies that fast, which means the indians that are in poverty take care of them selves. they r so not selfish, u r. im not indian but if i was them, i’d say and do the same thing

yo yo yash April 5, 2010 at 3:33 pm


BIDISHA May 24, 2010 at 11:24 am

listen nick indians dont buy deodorant o know why because they take regular bath and not like you all taking bath after almost 1 week and then when you stand beside an indian the foul smell from your body is put as a blame that “INDIANS” dont use deodorant

yeah we came up with the pythagoras theorem which is known all over the world how come you dont know this ?And in the history you can see that even the discovery of zero was in india which is now referred as a greek invention.who told you that the guy came up with it did not make any profit indians always dont take money as profit the thing he gained was respect and not a single guy came up with it some people together did it .
Obviously at the time of arguments people will bring ancient things because thats their pride
suppose you are a teacher and when you will become old if someone asks you to introduce yourself for once wont you say that you used to be a teacher i think you will say that i am now a old man who a with a spectacle also cant read.Indians can proudly speak about there golden victories as well as their defeat.india is facing starvation because of its population but people have to blame someone for it (its not indian nature its human nature)so they blame the government.its truth that british has stolen maximum property .In your country whatever you are seeing or getting maximum of it is the fruitful result of ancient property of the country .And india has faced this loss only in the nineteenth century wait it will recover and i believe that one day it will not only become the richest but also the most prosperous country.productivity is quite good in india so dont comment about it.
you never heard of an indian charity then i must say your knowledge is very poor india gave so much money and support at the time of iraq war same at, the time of bangladesh war and also gave much money even when pakistan was in trouble thats why the name indian subcontinent suits it the best
indians have much responsibility and can improve its democratic condition on its own since its not like you cant mind their own business busy talking bad about others.and dont talk about language and respect because both does not suit you .In india there are 114 languages so they know better what is language and in english dictionary there are some words that are not english but indians made it and some are derived frrom sanskrit the language which is originated in india

rajiv September 22, 2010 at 5:30 am

hey nick when you are talking about skills then i want to tell you that British government make up his mind that they send their workers to India for modern training in the field of information and technology. so if India is not capable for anything then when why British government taking these type of steps.

john June 16, 2011 at 6:13 pm

recently v gave 320 bn to african country d name i’m not sure ..plz don’t call us selfish coz v r a peace loving country even v condemned the attack on libya ,if v had powers v wud hav stopped it , and ugly excuse me its nature and i might say d same abt ur country .and regarding poverty stated ya i have to go only partially we are stuck by traditions but a whole lot of us have surpassed it ,think wen a million is in poverty wat wud u do ??

RAJ November 24, 2011 at 7:52 pm

Well first of all let me tell u why people in INDIA does not use deodorants out here its cuz they take bath daily..
Well, fortune companies out here have established 1000s of sites because of the multi tasking talent that was found in INDIANS &, greatness about INDIANS is that the hospitality n rich culture & yes people out here are courteous to run charities. I wish u could have learnt some decent English so that ur qualified for blogging & its known fact that BRITS took a hell lot of treasure from INDIA

Jamaica is the poorest country..
Jamaica is where the ugliest people lived..
Jamaica is the ugliest breed of mankind…

BarocD December 30, 2009 at 1:53 am

Jamaica is only poor because the rich countries keep it poor. They feed off of it and give nothing back. About all of the comments?

America is a rich and powerful nation and yes, it would destroy any country it needed to IF it needed to. It also has the largest economy but the largest spending problem.

India is also very rich but not per capita, the government uses most of the money on infrastructure. It then can develop a better economy. There are many slums though but also many beautiful areas. Its military is numerous yes but not the best equipped and numbers do not always make a difference. It. also only has around 50 nukes compared to Russia’s 5,200.

Singapore is very rich per capita and has an extremely fast growing economy but it is like India and many people see little of that money.

Canada is only slightly rich and has been surpassed by many counties in recent years but we have a good quality of life and the full backing of both NATO and China in almost any issue we have.
Oh and to some people… Pakistan is ruled by
Taliban who should all go die in a hole… And also India did not discover the value of Pi or the Pythagorean theorum… That was Pythagorus of Greece. Which is why it is called the Pythagoreas Theorum… And diamonds were available every for almost ever… Not just India, they were being exported by the load from Brazil throughout the 1700’s. Make sure you do some research before you try and post idiot.

Manmohan February 12, 2010 at 2:00 am

merpin January 27, 2011 at 6:33 am

hahahah true true

truth February 11, 2011 at 3:23 am

India was the best country in the past. that is a fact. India has given so much to the world in every field be it science,mathematics,arts,culture,yoga,ayurveda and the list goes on. i admit that india has not done much in the case of absolutely USELESS innovations,on which the west claims they are the best. for eg, they made engine, due to which the human race in in grave danger due to the increasing pollution. they made industries which pollute our planet.they made tv due to which people are getting obese and getting diseases and getting more and more monotonous, because in their every movie, the characters behave in same manner. they do not know to behave other way, they do not know that there are infinite possibilities in the universe.
they made video games due to which our children are getting retarded(i think most of the youths in US have personality disorder).

due to their disgusting ‘innovations’ , we are getting more and more separated from the nature and wasting our life.we are getting away from the reality.
for me India was,is and will be best. but if you compare a country like Pakistan with US,UK, Europe i think Pakistan is better. at least there people are not fake,robotic,overacting,and boasting about their pathetic ‘innovations’. they are only misguided by their obsolete religion. at least they are living simple lifestyle and not wasting the resources of OUR planet.
even Iraq is better.

look at these pathetic robots, the medical system which they have invented can not even cure a common cold.and they still waste billions in making colleges where the students will study ‘medicine’ and then they will loot money from the patients for giving them useless medicine which can only extend their life a little bit. rather than curing it only makes life worse due to the side effects of their medicine.

see their ‘innovations; it shows their knowledge, it shows their culture, it shows their understanding of life.
