The Richest Chinese People Forbes Richest People - Fifteen Richest Fictional People in 2006

One of the things that Forbes magazine does more successfully than most magazines is rank the richest people in the world according to their assets. They rank billionaire business leaders from around the world, the richest Americans, the most powerful women, the best companies, and more interestingly, the fifteen richest fictional characters in the world!

The unusual bunch of wealthy characters include everything from an Italian plumber that jumps around a lot (Mario), through to a duck that doesn't like spending his gold coins (Scrooge McDuck).

At the top of the rich fictional list is the Lieutenant General Oliver "Daddy" Warbucks from the Little Orphan Annie comic strip. The 52 year old defense contractor is reported to have an estimated $36.2 billion according to the Forbes magazine. They say that world conflicts like the war in Iraq and winning a lucrative "oil well maintenance" contract have increased the wealth of Daddy Warbucks.

He takes the place of Santa Claus who had previously dominated the number one position with an infinite amount of dollars. The children and toy retailers of the world have insisted that Santa Clause is real and should not be on a list of fictional characters, so Forbes has been forced to take the jolly fat man off the list. Kris Kringle still has an infinite amount of money, but evidence of him being real has been brought forth, with beer and cookies going missing on Christmas night and millions of presents being delivered to houses around the world each year.

Another wealthy fictional character to fall from grace was Lex Luthor, the nemesis of Superman. Luthor's recent attempt to take over the world has cost him billions of dollars, forcing him off the top 15 rich list.

Star of the Simpsons cartoon, Monty Burns (C. Montgomery Burns) saw his wealth double in twelve months with his dealings with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. The evil old nuclear plant operator from Springfield claimed second position on the list with an estimated $16 billion.

"What good is money if it can't inspire terror in your fellow man?" Monty Burns

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, Nov. 17, 2006. 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."
