For the Domain Developers Fund we have made a Quick study to create a new term, instead of GDP/Capita, we calculated GDP/Domain, which is the much more important number. We have found lots of data but for some TLD´s there was no way to find any stats, Greece, Nigeria, Thailand and Egypt are among them, so if you have data let me know and I will update the numbers.
Just a note:  .com includes the big generic TLDs such as .com,.net,.org,.biz and .info., also note that the numbers are in ´000
So what is the result ?
Number one on the list is Montenegro, a very small economy marketed its TLD very succesful and for each Domain registered there is a GDP of only 16.000 USD to be distributed. Saudi Arabia on the other Hand, who is very restrictive in registering Domains has 24 Mio USD of GDP/Domain to distribute. It also shows that Colombia, who is next on the list has a lot of potential when they start the launch of .co soon.
The other interesting rankings is the USA ccTLD: .us which is still waiting to be kissed awake and then there is a long list of promising ccTLD´s to look at: India, Mexico, Iran, Peru, Hong Kong, Singapore and Turkey and many smaller economies, at least for their top of the pop Domains.
