China is still really poor

There has been a lot of talk about the rise of China. And it has been quite impressive, China has been improving quite a lot in the past thirty years. One simple statistic really shows where things stand. Wikipedia has a nice list of GDP per Capita for every country in the world.

The United States: $47440
China: $5900

This isn't a close race yet.

The real question that list brings up is, where the fuck is Brunei?
