Queen Elizabeth II is the largest landowner in the world.
She is the head of state not only from Britain but also from 31 other countries and territories, and it is the private ownership of approximately 27 million square kilometers of land, more than 1 / 6 of the total land surface of the earth.
That's the equivalent of about 75 times the size of Germany.
<HM QE II is the only person in the world to belong whole countries.
This land has nothing to do with her role as head of state.
The value of this country amounts to 16,000 billion euros in 2010.
This makes her the richest person in the world.
Her property will be protected by the laws of the countries that belong to her, or their head of state it is.
Most land belongs to her in Canada, the second largest country in the world, with 10 million square kilometres, then 7.7 million square kilometres of Australia, Papua New Guinea, with 460 thousand square kilometres, 260 thousand square kilometres of New Zealand and Great Britain with 250 thousand square kilometres.
The Queen is the largest landowner by far.
The next largest is the Russian state with 17 million square kilometres,
then third in the Chinese state with 9.7 million square kilometres.
The fourth-largest landowner, the Government of the United States of America, approximately one third of the country include 3.1 million square kilometres.
The next largest private landowner is the king of Saudi Arabia at 2.2 million square kilometres.
Now we understand why Elizabeth II during the official photo of the G20 summit sits at the centre front ... she is the "boss" ... and the leaders of the next largest landowner is also in the front row next to her, Russia, China and the King of Saudi Arabia.
Obama makes an exception, he stood behind the Queen. That everything has a symbolic meaning:
... the bow of Obama before King Abdullah ibn Abd al-Aziz Al Sa'ud, although according to the protocol a U.S. president has not to bow to in front of anyone:
America is still a colony of Great Britain and the City of London is the centre of power, the main centre of global finance.
The City is managed by the City of London Corporation, is legally independent, and enjoys special privileges awarded by the Royal House and the Presidency of the Corporation to the Lord Mayor of London.
This office is not to be confused with the Mayor or Mayor of London.
The election procedure of the Corporation is not the usual democratic principles, since the exercise a disproportionate influence of business leaders.
The City of London even has its own police department, the City of London Police (the rest of the urban area of Greater London is the responsibility of the Metropolitan Police).
In the middle of the City, the Bank of England its seat, the mother of all central banks.
In the latest Forbes list of richest people is Kill Bill Gates in the first row.
The really rich can afford to buy themselves out of this list.
Man, how this handful of ritual misery trying to screw us.
Kevin Cahill and Rob McMahon provide startling statistics about who really owns the land in every country and territory on earth. Tables and charts, complete with numbers of owned acres, demonstrate that the ownership of land everywhere is not widely held. Instead, a few wealthy people, members of royal families, churches, and governments represent the vast overwhelming majority of land ownership.
