If you have more than $217 US in your bank account you can safely say that you are richer than an entire country. That country happens to be Zimbabwe which has by far one of the worst economies in the world today. The exchange rate of the currency had almost hit one trillion to one USD when the economy almost collapsed earlier this century. A piece of meat could cost more than one billion dollars in Zimbabwe. Now that's tough.



According to reports Zimbabwe has just $217 left in its government public account after paying public workers' wages last week, says the country finance minister. "The government finances are in paralysis state at the present moment. We are failing to meet our targets," the minister said at a press conference. He told reporters that many of them had healthier bank balances than the country, but managed to refrain from asking them for a loan, AFP reports.

The minister says Zimbabwe is going to have to ask international donors for cash to fund a constitutional referendum and elections this year

One must also take note that Zimbabwe is a country very rich in Diamonds with one of the biggest mining industries in the world. Their diamond exports are expected to top 1 billion USD this year.
