NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- No matter where you live, there is someone living nearby who is richer than you are -- unless you're on a new list out from Wealth-X, an ultra-high net worth intelligence firm, which tracks the wealthiest person in every U.S. state.
Bill Gates leads the pack and is the richest person in Washington, perhaps to the chagrin of Jeff Bezos, with $81.5 billion, but nine of those on the list are worth less than a billion. Six are women, including Christy Walton, heir to the Walmart (WMT) fortune, who is the richest woman in the world.
Click through to see who the wealthiest person is in your corner of the country. We've ranked them least-to-most wealthy. Gates is the richest and Washington state is No. 1, but the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 are no slouches. Get all the way to the finish to see who they are!
