The BCG just came out with their Global Wealth 2010 Report
and part of that report includes a listing of countries by percentage of the population that are millionaires. Of the top ten countries, seven are in Asia, two are in Europe and one is in North America. The US comes in at #7 and Belgium (big surprise to me) comes in at #8. The report also points out that millionaires represent less than 1% of the world's population but control 38% of the world's wealth and that this concentration of wealth is ever increasing.
