Figure 3 shows how much each EU citizen from the respective Member State contributed to the functioning of the UN, NATO and the WTO in 2018. However, it has to be noted that Sweden, Austria, Ireland, Finland and Cyprus are not NATO members, and are therefore placed much lower in the ranking. With its very high GNI per capita, Luxembourg contributes by far the most to the IGOs, since this is the primary criterion determining the national contributions for the UN and NATO. In general, the top 10 contributors among the EU Member States are western and northern European countries, being also the wealthiest European countries.
