A new map has revealed the richest company in each state based on total revenue from the last year, and Wal-Mart has once again taken the top spot. 

The mega retailer, whose headquarters are based in Arkansas, made $485.65billion in revenue this year, up $9billion from 2014. 

A number of companies continued their reign in their respective home states, including Verizon in New York (up $7billion for a total of $120.55billion), General Motors in Michigan and FedEx in Tennessee.

The map, created by Broadview Networks, also showed that the West Coast's richest companies stayed exactly the same. 

Chevron in California, Nike in Oregon and Costco in Washington all held on to their top spots.

But both Chevron and fellow gas company Exxon Mobil in Texas both saw drops in their revenue. 

Chevron fell from $228.84 to $211.97 and Exxon dropped a whopping $27billion to $411.93billion.

And Sanderson Farms in Mississippi lost its spot to fellow chicken farm Koch Foods.
