Map Shows The Name Of The Richest Person In Every State

A website decided to make a special map of the U.S.A. to give the public some interesting information. You may recognize the shape of the map, as well as the state borders. But instead of the names of places, it shares the names of people.

The website 'Wide Open Country' made a U.S. map of the wealthiest people in each of the 50 U.S. states. The website used data from 'Market Watch' to design the infographic. "From political figures to farmers, celebrities to entrepreneurs, our country has an impressive mixture of million and billionaires," the website says.

Some of the names might not surprise you, like the fact that Bill Gates is the wealthiest person in Washington with net worth of 79.2 billion. He's also the richest person in the country.

Other names are conspicuously missing - if you thought Donald Trump, the Kardashians or Oprah would be on there, you'd be wrong.

Who is the richest person in your state? Check it out.
