How valuable you are to your country?

Governments & nations must earn revenues (through taxes, investments, fees, etc) to fund national development and growth. This revenues is to be sourced from all inhabitants in the country. A richer population would contribute more revenues to the state.

If the government collects a huge significant amount of its revenues from the citizens, then under normal circumstances it’s expected to spend more on infrastructure & necessities back for the people (richer citizens demand better facilities, you know) The more each citizen contributes, the more valuable it is to the nation. If each citizen only contribute an insignificant portion to the state, then they are more likely to be treated as crap/disposable products by the government since losing one or one thousands is no big deal.

So, which country citizens contribute most to their country? Who are the most valuable people and who are worthless?

I just compiled an economic data. People usually define how wealthy a country’s citizen is by looking at the GDP per capita. While not disputing the accuracies and validity of that formula, I put forward another calculation; national revenues / total population,

Extracted from the data, here are some of them;

Each person in Burma only contribute $21.38 per year to their country. No wonder their government treat them as %(&^(*&$%

Each person in North Korea contribute $126.55 per year to the state, genocide 1,000 of them the country only lost $126,550 in annual revenues

On average, each person in Norway contribute $44,244.34/yr to the state. They are indeed precious assets to the country.

The list shows my government makes $17439/yr out from me, so am I valuable to the country? :lol:

Full data below shows how much each citizen on average, contribute to the country (revenues in US$) per year, I just copied from my excel, to get clearer view copy and paste the whole thing into ur excel :

edit: apparently, it won’t work here, instead, if your interested, download the file and copy/paste into ur excel

Solomon Islands - $81.50293378…

No wonder the people there very poor…

this data can also be interpreted as how much the gov’t willing to spend at maximum for u every year, as beyond that the budget would go into deficit.

we see the gov’t of congo can only willing to spend $9.87/yr (or $0.8225/mth) for each of its citizens, omg. $0.8/mth can buy? :mrgreen:

Malaysia 1704.876283

Although some (majority perhaps) of us contributes way lot more than that amount, we are still being treated like shyt. 2nd class citizens, called pendatang :twisted: How valuable is that?
