2 of America's richest zip codes are in Minnesota

No prizes for guessing where.

Two Minnesota zip codes are among the richest areas to live in the country.

Bloomberg Business has compiled a top 200 of the richest zip codes in the U.S., which is topped by Fisher Island, in Miami Beach.

The top 10 is dominated by exclusive communities in Florida, California, New York and Illinois, with Minnesota's two richest not even breaking the top 100.
