Denmark advances on the list of the world's richest countries

Each year, the World Bank compiles an overview of how rich the world’s countries are measured by gross domestic product per capita. This year Denmark advances.

This year, Denmark has advanced two places from a ninth to a seventh place with a GDP per capita of $58,930. Denmark thus surpasses Bermuda and Kuwait on the list and now also ranks right before Sweden.

Denmark is the highest-ranking country that does not make most of its wealth from natural resources, the financial sector or gambling.

Luxembourg tops the list with a GDP per capita in 2013 of $111,162, Norway is second with a GDP per capita of $100,819 and Qatar is third with $93,352.
