Liechtenstein is a small country in Europe with just 33,000 inhabitants, but the highest GDP per capita in the world. This is largely because Liechtenstein is a tax paradise and therefore much capital is flowing into the country. Furthermore, there are more people working in Liechtenstein than living. As the GDP per capita is calculated by dividing the total GDP by the number of inhabitants, this figure is distorted.

Unfortunately, many statistics about Liechtenstein are missing. The greenhouse gas emissions on a per capita basis are at about world average. The same is true for the school life expectancy. The tertiary education enrolment ratio, however, is very low.
