Population: 34.5 million
Percentage of millionaire households: 2.8%

Canada thrives off its neighbor to the south. It's the U.S.’s largest foreign supplier of energy, including oil, gas, uranium and electric power. When the financial crisis hit, Canadian banks were among the least-affected; when the banking system came out of crisis, Canada's banks were among the strongest in the world. The country had 373,000 millionaire households in 2012. Its wealthiest citizen is David Thomson, patriarch of Canada’s wealthiest family. He controls a 55 percent stake in Thomson Reuters and is worth $25.3 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
