The Richest Person In Every Country, Visualized

Billionaires are a very select, elite club, with currently 2,153 billionaires in the world. The data wizards from HowMuch created an infographic, extrapolating from the Forbes billionaire list, displaying the richest moguls from 73 countries, dividing them into their regions of the world and how they accumulated their massive wealth.

While some countries have a very self-evident richest person, some aren't quite as obvious. Did you happen to know the Nutella guy, Italy's richest person, was so loaded?

Some of the key takeaways from this chart are that Jeff Bezos — with $149.7 billion — is the richest person in the world and that only 5 women (from the 73 listed) are the richest people in their countries.

The top five richest billionaires by country are below:

1. Jeff Bezos - $149.7B, U.S.

2. Bernard Arnault - $89.3B, France

3. Amancio Ortega- $63.7B, Spain

4. Carlos Slim Helu- $60B, Mexico

5. Mukesh Ambani - $52.9B India
