1) If I was Super Rich, I would probably live in many places. Monaco, London, New York, Dubai etc.

2) Somewhere like Jersey - Tax Dodge areas anyhow. I might consider using my wealth to live in a developing nation - just to live in a Bigger house. Somewhere like Romania or something.

3) Where to live... Probably somewhere like Germany, dunno really. This one is too difficult.

4) This would have to one of the Scandanavian nations. Norway or Sweden probably. That would give me the best opportunity to stop being poor.

5) A member of the underclass? If I was a member of the Underclass, It would have to be a Council Estate in London. Where I would see out my days in a Gang, shooting drugs and people.

It is not the challenges a people face which define who they are, but rather the way in which they respond to those challenges.

1. I'd buy an estate with large amount of lands and never leave.
2. I'd buy an estate with a moderate amount of lands and never leave.
3. I'd buy a cabin and spend vaction there. (US)
4. Seeing as I don't agree with socialism, I'll stick to the US, and work my way up.
5. Again, I'll stick with the US, but I'd probably say screw it and move into the to woods...

Now we should post our reasons to our choices!

1. Pakistan. I said this because being super rich in Pakistan provides you with an extraordinary amount of freedom that doesn't exist in any developed nation. You can live as a feudal lord (literally). Servants armed militia, peons, you name it.
2. Singapore. I named this city because it is a city that is very nice to live in yet quite expensive. You can still have servants, there is excellent education, no water worries, and plenty of business opportunities.
3. Middle class: Australia, because as practically all the population is middle class, the culture is geared towards that lifestyle. + its where I live now.
4. Poor: Outback australia, because in outback and rural australia there is no poor, alternatively everyone is poor. You neighbours will and do support you, and you can be largely self sufficient.
5. Underclass: New Zealand. Again because there is no underclass in New Zealand but they have slightly better social security than Australia. Otherwise same reason for being poor in rural Oz. South Island because its got better scenery

Don't know if i was rich but if I was poor or even lower middle class

I rather be a nomadic barbarian than a sedentary savage

If i was super rich i would live in Mongolia because I like mongolians

If was quite rich i would live in Zimbabwe because I like drums and cool dances

If i was in the middle income group i would live in Spain because I like this phenomenon called "tapas"

If I was poor I would like to live in Norway because I hear their health care is good, and I can live off unemployment pay-checks so being lazy has a reward

If I was a member of the underclass I would live in Brazil because I hear everybody parties no matter what class you are!

China is I were super rich, because I have heard fabulous stories about the immense power and wealth that the super rich enjoy over there.

Sinapore for quite rich, because being in a benevolent dictatorship means opportunity is all about ingratiating yourself with the right people - plus its a damn rich country where you can make a bucketful

Australia for both poor and middle class, because this country takes damn good care of its people.

Finland for underclass, because I have heard fabulous stories about the generosity of the Finnish welfare system.
It is not the challenges a people face which define who they are, but rather the way in which they respond to those challenges.

If I were super rich, I'd buy me a palazzo in Venice...
 
If I were quite rich, I'd buy me something Georgian in England in the countryside. Or Wales perhaps.
 
Anything else, I'd just stay put right here. It might be better elsewere, but it just would not be worth the trouble.
