For the 27th annual Forbes billionaires list, our team of reporters spent months tracking down the wealthiest people around the globe. Ultimately, we found 1,426 billionaires who are together worth a total of $5.4 trillion -- a record sum. The combined wealth of billionaires from the United States, $1.87 trillion, is larger than the combined wealth of all the billionaires from Europe, $1.55 trillion, or any other continent. BRIC nations represent three of the five countries with the largest combined net worth: Russian billionaires have amassed $427.1 billion, ranking second. Followed by Germans, $296.25 billion, Chinese, $262.96 billion, and Indians $193.6 billion.
