Forbes is out with a list of the richest person in each state, and pretty much all of them have at least $1 billion. Jeff Bezos, of course, is at the top of the heap—in his new residence of Florida—with $194 billion. Some nuggets:

Paupers: Only three states have no billionaires—Alaska, Delaware, and West Virginia.
