The Richest Person in North Dakota
You are not the richest person in North Dakota. Sorry.
The title of richest person in North Dakota belongs to Gary Tharaldson according to Forbes, which put out a list of the richest people in each state last month.
Tharaldson is a hotel tycoon who has amassed roughly 350 of them after purchasing his first one in 1982.
According to Forbes, Tharaldson is worth about $930 million. Based on the list of the richest person in each state, North Dakota is one of 7 states whose richest person is not worth an amount in the billions.
But it makes sense that North Dakota has no billionaires. In order to be a billionaire in North Dakota, you would need to work as an anesthesiologist for over 3,530 years!
