7. Nigeria – $1.915 billion

Nigeria, the most populous country in Africa with 173.6 million people, had a gross domestic product of $522.6 billion in 2013. However, 46 percent of the country lives below the poverty line, with an average gross national income per capita of $2,760. Despite Nigeria’s large oil revenues and a growing economy, it continues to struggle with many socioeconomic problems. Furthermore, the involvement of the Nigerian military in many conflicts across the country means it needs continued international aid.
