Forbes has released its third annual list of the richest person in each state and the cumulative wealth amounts to over $745 billion.

The top ten includes the list’s youngest member – 33-year-old CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg – along with the owners of Wal-Mart and others.

It’s worth noting that some of the country’s wealthiest individuals – like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos – are not the wealthiest residents of their own state, and therefore are not included on this list.

We’ve listed the top ten states by their richest resident along with details such as net worth and industry.
