15. The Netherlands

Population: 16.7 million
Percentage of millionaire households: 2.1%

The fortunes of the richest Dutch families are not too affected by the turmoil of the debt crisis ravaging the euro zone's economy. Although the country dipped back into a recession, and its economy shrank by 0.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011, it still boasted about 152,000 millionaire households last year. Its considerable trade surplus and central role as Europe's transportation hub make a strong economy and keep the millionaires afloat. The richest person of Dutch descent, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index is beer heiress Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken, who oversees a fortune of more than $7 billion.
