Poorest countries in the world

The poorest countries in the world are from Africa and Middle East. This is largely because of famine, war or because they are under authoritarian regimes where corruption is rampant, ultimately deterring foreign investors.

 

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) ranks the world’s countries according to purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita which takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of the countries to compare living standards among the different nations.

 

Below are all the countries with a GDP per capita of less than $1,000 per year.
