Politically volatile Egypt was ranked second with total wealth of US$367.6 billion followed by Africa’s most populous nation, Nigeria with US$227.5 billion. Algeria was in fourth place followed by Morocco. They had total wealth of US$225 billion and US$190.7 billion respectively. Zimbabwe was the only country with total wealth below US$10 billion.

Botswana has, however, only two million people.
