Germany: the richest country in the world is not the first place you would think of; Germany is known for it’s discipline and tradition, but it’s also known for its incredible wealth. According to a recent study, Germans have an average net worth of $676,000 per person and these are estimates. The number one reason as to why German citizens are so wealthy is because the majority of them work for an international company which pays their salaries in foreign currencies like Euros. Other countries with high gross domestic product (GDP) are Switzerland (#2), Luxembourg (#6), and Belgium (#7).
