Our respective states may be united, but we’re always competing against each other. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about which state is home to the most golf courses per capita, which has the lowest obesity rate, or how rich our richest resident is, we all want bragging rights, because basically we’re all assholes.
The below map shows each state’s richest resident, along with his or her net worth. If you visit the source of this map at Movoto.com, you’ll find an interactive version of the same map. It allows you to hover over each state to reveal a photo of the person listed, as well as a link to their Wikipedia page.
Highest: Bill Gates of Washington, $80 billion
Lowest: Robert Gillam of Alaska, $700 million
Poor ass Robert Gillam probably only has one yacht and like a 2011 PJ with faux wood paneling. What’s wrong, Bobby? You can’t quite hit a billion? You’re the poorest-richest guy in the country. Fuck outta here.
