Qatar’s population is approximately 2.27 million, giving it a total GDP of approximately $124,930 per person and making it the richest country in world as of 2017, according to the IMF.

3. Macao — GDP per capita: $96,147 (£78,407)
Macau is an autonomous region on the south coast of China, across the Pearl River Delta from Hong Kong. A Portuguese territory until 1999, it reflects a mix of cultural influences. Its giant casinos and malls on the Cotai Strip, which joins the islands of Taipa and Coloane, have earned it the nickname, "Las Vegas of Asia." One of its more striking landmarks is 338m-high Macau Tower, with sweeping city views.

Singapore remains one of the world’s richest countries and saw its real GDP grow by 2.7% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2017, the IMF reported.

On a broader scale, IMF notes that Singapore’s economic growth has been limited mainly to its expert-oriented fields.

And that non-oil growth is expected to continue growing, the IMF said.

The United Arab Emirates stands as one of the richest countries in the world, with an economy pushed by the oil market, according to the IMF.
