Which are the richest countries in the world? What are the nations that live with a general superior well-being compared to other states? L'Italy is included in the top 25? How many European states are part of this special ranking? Let's scroll through the list of 25 richest countries in the world and let's discover some surprising results together!

The classification method

For the Top 25 of the richest countries in the world we used the gross domestic product (GDP) PPP per capita expressed in dollars. Let's better analyze the chosen parameter:



  • GDP: market value of finished goods and services produced at the level of each nation in the indicated period of time;
  • PPA: means "purchasing power parity" and takes into account the different cost of living according to the country. More realistic than the Nominal GDP;
  • Per capita: total value divided by the average population of the nation over the same period of time.

Let's see together the 25 richest countries in the world. Italy is just outside: it oscillates between the 33rd and 39th position.
