Real estate broker site Movoto has put together a cool map showing exactly who the richest person in each state is. The United States is home to more billionaires than any other country, and also boasts the richest man in the world (Bill Gates).

Another of the interesting things the map reveals, include the descendants of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, spread their inheritance so well that each of the Walton’s is the richest person in a different state. Alice Walton is the richest Texan with $35.3B to her name. Jim Walton rules neighboring Arkansas with his $35.7B and Christy Walton is the richest of the three, setting up her vast $37.9B fortune in Wyoming.

Other highlights include Nike co-founder Phil Knight claiming the title of richest Oregonian. Also, Alaska, home of the nation’s lowest tax rate is also home to the “poorest” person with the most money in a respective state.

Check out the map and see who is at the top of your state’s list.
