19. Norway – Median wealth: $70,627

Like many other Scandinavian nations, Norway not only has a high GDP per capita ($105,126) and median wealth ($70,627) but it’s also world-leading in terms of equality, with the most recent Gini index estimates from the World Bank ranking it as the third most equal country. It has an abundant supply of natural resources, along with a large private sector, to thank for the majority of its wealth.
