15. The Netherlands

Population: 16.8 million
Percentage of millionaire households: 2.6%

The recession continues in the Netherlands. Tax revenue fell nearly 9 percent in 2012 and the budget deficit grew. Still, there were plenty of millionaires last year, with 191,000 millionaire households, according to The Boston Consulting Group. The trade surplus and the country’s role as a European transportation hub helped keep many of them afloat. The richest Dutch citizen, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, is beer heiress Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken, who oversees a fortune of more than $10 billion.
