That ranking only takes into account the GDP per capita (what does that mean by the way?). I think that determining a country's wealth is subjective (especially when it involves comparative analysis). It definitely takes more than one parameter to know what a country is worth. In simple terms, I don't agree with the ranking

Wealth is the state of having in abundance, or at least the state of not being in need, as we all know. GDP is the measure of the viability of a system or an economy and how much can be milked/produced from that economy. GDP does not measure wealth. It only connotes wealth by way of imperfect implication.

How do we measure wealth? Well research many schools of thought. Alternatively, you can construct a way to measure wealth if you want to. A measure that does not simply average or proportionately average, but one that considers the wellbeing of the inhabitants of any given. I believe it's a fusion of economics and sociology. Who wants to go down in history as a contributor to socio-economic thought? Like Captain Planet says, "The Power is Yours"
