6) South Africa – $11,914 (GDP per capita)
South Africa is a dual economy with one of the world’s highest inequality rates, owing much to the history of exclusion within the country. The South African economy is the second largest in Africa and the 28th-largest in the world, leading to the World Bank to rank it as an upper-middle income economy. This is however contrary to the fact that at least a quarter of the country’s population is unemployed and living on less than US$1.25 per day.
