11. Oman

Population: 3.1 million
Percentage of millionaire households: 3.3%

The sultanate of Oman had 17,000 households worth more than $1 million in 2012. With oil reserves declining, it may be difficult for those millionaires to hang on to their wealth. So far, oil surpluses have allowed the government to maintain growth in social subsidies and in public sector jobs, although the sultan has said this isn't sustainable. The monarch of Oman, Qaboos bin Said al Said, and his family are believed to be the nation's richest individuals.
