    No country is free from inequality. I think some of these first world countries may even have more as some have dependency on other countries for assistance. However, the smaller countries that are more self sustaining probably have less inequality overall and amongst themselves.

    No!
    As long as there are at least two people on the planet there will be one person who will attempt to dominate over the other in some form or fashion.
    The (ego) always seek to prove one is somehow better than another. People want an equal chance at becoming "special".
    So called "first world countries" have various ways of making it known who is a "VIP" (Very Important Person) who deserves better not equal treatment. It pays to be wealthy in the U.S.
    The laws are even applied differently to the rich and famous.

    Inequity is a fundamental attribute of human nature. You don't have to go further than the family to see inequity in action. So no one should be surprised to see it pervading all places that have more than one person.

    Throughout the ages, for example, women were treated as chattel, and that continues even today in parts of the world.

    Maybe there is more equality in 1st world countries, but it still exists as a predominant force.
