  • 30 would be white
  • 70 would be non-Christian
  • 30 would be Christian
  • 95 would be heterosexual
  • 5 would be homosexual
  • 6 people would own 59% of the world’s wealth, and all 6 would be from the United States
  • 80 would live in substandard housing
  • 70 would be unable to read
  • 50 would suffer from malnutrition
  • 1 would be near death
