Being rich still has its perks: You can buy a sports teams or chart a private shuttle to outer space. The people on Forbes’ new list of the richest person in every state have a combined personal wealth of $832 billion, or more than the gross national product of Switzerland and Portugal combined.

Forbes tabulated the net worth of these million and billionaires based on reported information of their assets and their company’s public financial statements. Their average fortune is a cool $16.6 billion, a significant bump from $14.4 billion in 2017. (What bad economy?)

Most of them made their mint in finance and investing, followed by retail and fashion. The food and beverage sector is also a good path to becoming a centimillionaire or billionaire—though nothing beats being born rich. Two recognizable family names pop up several times: The Mars, heirs to the Mars candy-bar empire, and the Waltons, the family that owns Walmart.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is the richest person on the list —and every list, for that matter. Based in Washington State, Bezos started Amazon as an online bookstore in his garage in 1994. Today it's a one-stop-shop with revenues topping $177 billio

n in 2017.  (Bezos also owns Whole Foods and the Washington Post.)  Most of the other fat cats here are white men like Bezos—though Maine’s Susan Alfond ($1.6 billion) and Texas’s Alice Walton ($40 billion) made the cut.   

There’s several prominent immigrants, too— including Hungarian Thomas Peterffy, the richest man in Florida;  German-born Andrea Reimann-Ciardelli of New Hampshire; and Hawaii’s Pierre Omidyar, who emigrated from France with his Iranian parents when he was a child. 

Wealth comes and goes, of course: These folks were the richest in their state as of May 11, 2018. Click through and meet them.
