Who Owns all the Land in the World?



So if there is more land than people, how come there isn’t enough land for everyone? Good question. So because something is in excess doesn’t mean everyone will have it. As with the general rule, very few people control vast majority of any resource. Same for land. There is virtually no free land.


So who owns the land you stand on? If you buy a land, does that you the owner of the land. Nope. You just own a title to the land. Especially in countries like Nigeria or socialist countries. Even if your forefathers passed the land to you. If you think I’m joking, let government discover oil or gold on your land then you will know who owns your land. Lol. If you don’t have money don’t invest in real estate just yet. Invest in business first, then use the proceeds to fund real estate.


One woman I love and fear at the same time apart from my mother is her Majesty the Queen of England. That woman is low key one the most powerful people on earth. That’s why I said I fear her. You see the nonsense they tell you that the Queen is worth just around £270 million. Please please, don’t tell me that rubbish. That’s like saying Jeff Bezos is richer than sir Rothschild. Laughable. Of course you won’t see Rothschild on Forbes. You can’t quantify what you can’t see.


The Queen is far more powerful and richer than the media wants you to believe. And she isn’t just a ceremonial Queenie either. That’s another lie. LIES. Virtually all land in the UK belongs to the Queen. She is the head of state of the United Kingdom and of 31 other states and territories, is the legal owner of about 6,600 million acres of land, one sixth of the earth’s non ocean surface.


She is the only person on earth who owns whole countries, and who owns countries that are not her own domestic territory. This land ownership is separate from her role as head of state and is different from other monarchies where no such claim is made – Norway, Belgium, Denmark etc.

The value of her land holding. £17,600,000,000,000 (approx).


This makes her the richest individual on earth. However, there is no way easily to value her real estate. There is no current market in the land of entire countries. At a rough estimate of $5,000 an acre, and based on the sale of Alaska to the USA by the Tsar, and of Louisiana to the USA by France, the Queen’s land holding is worth a notional $33,000,000,000,000 (Thirty three trillion dollars or about £17,600,000,000,000). Her holding is based on the laws of the countries she owns and her land title is valid in all the countries she owns. Her main holdings are Canada, the 2nd largest country on earth, with 2,467 million acres, Australia, the 7th largest country on earth with 1,900 million acres, the Papua New Guinea with 114 million acres, New Zealand with 66 million acres and the UK with 60 million acres.


She is the world’s largest landowner by a significant margin. The next largest landowner is the Russian state, with an overall ownership of 4,219 million acres, and a direct ownership comparable with the Queen’s land holding of 2,447 million acres. The 3rd largest landowner is the Chinese state, which claims all of Chinese land, about 2,365 million acres. The 4th largest landowner on earth is the Federal Government of the United States, which owns about one third of the land of the USA, 760 million acres. The fifth largest landowner on earth is the King of Saudi Arabia with 553 million acres
