An overview of the  top ten  revenue generating countries

The wealth of the countries is unequally distributed. But which country has the highest gross domestic product per inhabitant? An overview of the ten richest countries in the world.

The UN officially recognizes 193 countries and states. But which country is the wealthiest on earth? Various criteria – such as wealth per inhabitant or the country’s gross domestic product ( GDP ) – can be used to select the richest country in the world .

The ranking is determined on the gross domestic output per capita in 2021. The manufactured goods are determined using the total population of the nation along with the GDP per capita. As a result, the figure serves as a gauge of an economy’s performance.

The information was released in April 2022 and relates to the year 2021. The numbers now reveal the effects of the Corona accident, which makes this data intriguing. But which country is currently the richest country on earth?
