Credit Suisse’s 2012 Global Wealth Report is out, and it reports show that Australia — land of outspoken billionaire Gina Rinehart and Titanic-building Clive Palmer — is very, very wealthy.

According to the report, the the country’s wealth per adult in 2012 is UD$355,000, the second highest in the world after Switzerland. Even more surprisingly, the report states that the country’s median wealth — US$194,000 —is now the highest in the world.

The value of the country’s real assets per person is now second only to Norway.
