Rich man, Poor State

What do the countries of Cote d'Ivoire, Cameroon, Estonia, Panama, El Salvador, Cyprus, Tanzania, Jordan, Macau, Equatorial Guinea, Bosnia, Turkmenistan, Bolivia, Iceland, Ghana, Paraguay, bahrain, Jamaica, Uganda, Gabon, Zambia, Honduras, Senergal, Botswana, Georgia, Nepal, Albania, Armenia, DRC, Brunei, Congo, Afghanistan, Mozambique, Cambodia, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Namibia, Chad, Papua New Guinea, Burkina Faso, Malta, Haiti, The Bahamas, Benin, Nicaragua, Laos, Niger, Mongolia, Tajikstan, Montenegro, Rwanda, Kyrgyzstan, Malawi, Guinea, Fiji, Zimbabwe, Barbados, Suriname, Mauritania, Togo, swaziland, Central African Republic, Eritrea, Burundi, and TWENTY SEVEN other sovereign nations have in common?

They are all POORER than the man at the BOTTOM of the list of ten richest people in the world. The man at the very top, Carlos Slim Helu, with $53.5 billion to his credit would be NUMBER 67 in the world if he was a COUNTRY. His personal fortune is bigger than the annual GDP of entire nations like Bulgaria ($49 billion), Qatar ($52.7 bilion), Sri Lanka ($40.7 billion), and Lithuaninia ($47 billion).

Worth every last cent, I am sure.
