Tales of the Arabian Nice and RICH!

Saudi Arabia is completely unique place: Though covered by vast, inhospitable desert, the peninsular nation is rich in ancient history and literature, home to the two holiest sites in Islam, and absolutely swimming in petroleum. The second-largest Arab state in the world, Saudi Arabia is the only Arab country in the G-20 of major world economies.

Despite its accomplishments, Saudi Arabia is not without criticism, largely for its conservative religious zeal, dodgy human rights record, and virtually-dictatorial monarchical regime.

But if there’s one thing Saudi Arabia can brag about, it’s wealth. Consistently ranked as one of the wealthiest countries in the world: Who are Saudi Arabia’s richest citizens? Wait till you read what the #1 billionaire on the list is about to do with his fortune…

While some royalty is included on this list, King Salman and his immediate family are not listed as their net worth is vast and complicated to track. The king himself has a worth estimated at $17 billion.
