Top Ten Poorest Countries in the World

Countries of the world do not have a uniform economy. With variations reaching to extreme ends, countries economic conditions can be mapped on the basis of their GDP per capita.

GDP is the value of all final goods and services produced within a country in a given year. A country with a GDP per capita of $765 dollars or less is defined as a low-income or poor country. And it is on the basis of this GDP, that the top ten poorest countries map has been prepared. Industrialization, overpopulation, investment, infrastructure, geography, resources, colonialism, education, government and debt are few of the most critical aspects that make poorest countries retain their poverty.
