In what nations is the southern region poorer than that of the north? Or vice versa?
Or where is the main difference between east and west in terms of wealth?

The southern US is poorer than the northern US. The East and West Coasts seem to be more prosperous than the middle of the nation.

Brazil has such division between south (rich) and north (poor), and it's very huge.
In fact, the regions South, Southeast and Central West, in terms of per capita income, are more akin to Chile and somewhat richer than Argentina, while North and Northeast are more akin to Bolivia and Ecuador.

Actually, the U.S. is fairly unusual in that there aren't huge regional economic disparities. There used to be, but not now.

Fifty years ago, there was a HUGE difference between Mississippi and Connecticut. Now the difference isn't very big compared to differences within most developed countries.

That's just too bad, I had no idea Connecticut has become just as poor as Mississippi is today. It used to be a fairly nice state.
