According to this website from Yale, this is what the world would look like if it were just one village of 100 people:

57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 North and South Americans
8 Africans
70 would be people of color, 30 would be white
30 would be Christian, 70 would be of other faiths
25% of the wealth would be in the hands of 6 people, all citizens of the United States
70 would be unable to read
80 would live in substandard housing
1 would have a university education
And then this from The Economist:
IT’S A RICH MAN’S WORLD

An annual survey estimated that the combined WEALTH of the world’s
10.9m rich people (27% of whom are women) stood at $42.7 trillion in
2010, more than in 2007, the year the financial crisis was brewing.
More than half of the monied classes live in the United States, Japan
and Germany, though Asia has more in total than Europe for the first
time.
