    South Korea

    The capital of South Korea is Seoul. It’s a city with soul. … Sorry, to be frank, this world capital list would have never been complete without a bad pun. Anyways, along with Tokyo, Seoul is one of the world capital cities where residents get the least avg amount of sleep (less than 6 hours per night).

Although the number of the independent countries is 197 plus about five dozen of dependent territories.

Thus the European euro is used in 35 independent states and overseas territories, the United States dollar is used in 10 foreign countries and in the USA, the West African CFA franc – in 8 and the Central African CFA franc – in 6 African states, the East Caribbean dollar – in 6 Caribbean nations.

The world’s most-traded currency is the US dollar with about 47% share of global payments and 87% of the forex market’s daily turnover. On the second place is the Euro, having about 33% of the daily forex transactions and 28% share of the international bank payments.

Top 50 richest countries in the World

                    How to determine how rich a country is and compare it with the others? Of course, the key indicator is the GDP per capita (a total value of goods and services produced by a nation during a year divided by its total population). It shows how rich each citizen is, on average, but unfortunately does not take into account differences in the cost of living in various parts of the world.
