8. Ghana – $1.807 billion

Ghana had a gross domestic product of $47.93 billion in 2013, making it a lower middle-income developing country. It has a population of 25.90 people, and 28.5 percent of its citizens live below the poverty line with an average gross national income per capita of $1,760. Ghana’s democracy has been lauded across Africa and the world for its stability and commitment to fair elections, and much of the international aid directed to Ghana has been geared towards maintaining and promoting further democratization.
