The Richest Chinese People Forbes Richest People - Fifteen Richest Fictional People in 2007

Both Carlos Slim and Scrooge McDuck have had extremely profitable years in 2007. The former because of the surging share price of his massive share holdings and the latter because of the surging price of gold. The wealthy duck has hoarded all of his ever growing pile of gold coins and bullion and now has an estimated net worth of $28.8 billion. His strategy of buying and hoarding has paid off, with an almost threefold increase in wealth over the past year, and the title of the richest fictional character from the Forbes business magazine. If Scrooge was real he would be ranked the 6th richest billionaire in the world, behind the billionaire steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal.

The richest fictional character last year fell from grace after losing his life in Iraq. The defense contractor Oliver ''Daddy'' Warbucks was killed by an improvised explosive device in the war-torn country, leaving his $36.2 billion fortune tied up in the courts, with his daughter Lil' Orphan Annie and a bunch of wives and hangers on fighting for control.

Another notable victim to fall off the exclusive list of wealthy fictional characters was Mr. Monopoly. He was caught up in the real world crisis of the US subprime mortgage meltdown.

With the release of the Simpson's Movie, you would think the extra exposure would have increased the fortune of Springfield's richest mogul, but Monty Burns has been hit hard by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A dirty nuclear reactor is no longer acceptable in a world that is choking from pollution. Even the most feared real world billionaires have turned green. The 104 year old ogre (Monty Burns, not Rupert Murdoch) lost half of his fortune during the past 12 months and is now in 6th position with an $8.4 billion dollar fortune.

"One dollar for eternal happiness? I'd be happier with the dollar" Monty Burns Quote

Santa Claus remains off the list, even though he topped the fictional rich list a couple years ago with an infinite amount of money. It was argued that the jolly fat man is actually real and Forbes has stood by their findings. If beer and cookies go missing on Christmas night and millions of presents are delivered to houses around the world every year, Santa must be real!

Ranking fictional characters by their wealth is not an easy task though, just as it is challenging to rank the real billionaires of the world. Here's how Forbes does it..
"Net worth estimates are based, when possible, on known commodity and share price movements. All prices as of market close, Dec. 10, 2007. In the case of privately held fictional concerns, we sought to identify comparable fictional public companies. Final net worths were calculated using a tiny grain of common sense and a large dose of salt."
