If the Occupy Wall Street “movement” gave us one thing, (and frankly, I don’t want to give those people any credit for anything ever) it’s the terms 1% and 99%, and those were probably coined by someone else a long time ago anyway. Yes, there’s a 1%, certainly, there’s a top percentage of everything, but do they control 99% of the resources? How the hell should I know.

The fact remains that everyone wants to be in the 1%. It’s true. Everyone wants to be the cream of the crop. But how much do you have to make in order to be in the 1% in your state? Thanks to Business Insider, here’s your answer.

The state that requires the most money? Surprisingly, not New York or California. Connecticut comes in as the most expensive state at an approximate annual income of $642,000. However, they’re not the most expensive location in the country; Washington, D.C. takes the top spot in that regard, at $688,000.

What if you want to be an Elite on a budget? We’ve got you covered there too. You can be a “One Percenter” in Idaho for $274,000 a year, the lowest in the Nation. Montana, New Mexico, Wyoming, Arkansas and Alabama all clock in under $300,000 as well.

I think I’ll take my talents to Montana and start my own elite family lineage on a budget. “Why, yes, we are the Butte Tas-es. We own a chain of Taco Bells that stretches from Missoula to Miles City, but we truly made our fortune in 7-Elevens.”
