I was astonished to learn that there are over 2,500 billionaires in the world! There is a research firm called Wealth-X that compiles and releases an annual billionaire census. According to their last census, from 2018, there “are now more global billionaires than ever before, powered by a vibrant technology sector, as well as dynamic growth in the number of ultra-wealthy individuals in Asia – which, for the first time, overtook North America as the home of the most billionaires.” So for now, the country with the most billionaires is probably Hong Kong.
I did not want to download the complete report but that’s my guess.
The United Kingdom, Isreal, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia are among countries that have uncodified constitutions, which means the laws are written in these countries, but an overriding document does not necessarily define them.

Under the uncodified constitution, new conditions and situations of government are resolved by precedent or passing legislation.
