What the garbage!u know what funded those beautiful towns,wealth taken from colonies brought to the homeland..leaving the colony to starve..and if we consider the colony as a part of the empire,then the poor cancel out the rich.
Now my turn..here's a list we all can agree on:
The Mali empire,we've all heard of mansa musa haven't we
The Abbasids,internal trade across the vast empire as well as trade links to the edge of the continent generated vast wealth.
If United States count then they sure are rich.if not,then Mughals.control over almost all of the sub continent with its fertile lands and rivers resulted in great agricultural wealth.

When it comes to Silver production the Iberian Peninsula (future Spain) supplied the world for 1000 years with most of its silver. Iberian silver was important for Roman and for the Asiatic trade. Then Bolivia, Mexico and Peru which were under the Spanish empire provided plenty of the worlds silver.

For 300 years those three Latin American nations provided the world with 85% of its silver.

Recommend you read this short article on the history of Silver.

America is not an empire, America has trillions of debts. Their economy and GDP is massive but as far as I understand the thread, we count it by the sheer physical wealth that imperial governments amassed over the centuries.

Yes, my mistake. However, it could be said that America is an empire, and I'm one of the people who says that
