“The grass is always greener on the other side.” And for people just outside these rich zip codes, the bank accounts typically look greener, too.

America’s scale and segmentation provide a unique opportunity to compare data across regions, and here at Wealth Gang we rarely turn down a chance to look at state-by-state financial statistics. Sometimes they’re actionable, in the case of the best states for millennials, working moms, and remote workers. Sometimes they’re informative, helping us know how much money is needed to retire in each state. And sometimes they’re just plain juicy, such as how much income is needed to be “rich” in each state, or where the billionaires live.

Fact is, we love looking at the financial similarities and disparities between the country’s regions. In this case, using data from GOBankingRates, we rounded up the zip codes with the highest household income in all 50 states:
