    The US is in deep multi-trillion dollar debt, and so are many European countries.

    Are there any countries in the world who have an economic surplus ?

    Germany has had a surplus for some years,e.g. €12 bn in 2018 but it doesn't mean anything. Having said that, there's a difference between a budget deficit and national debt that you seem to have in mind if I understand your first sentence right.

    Norway is the only country of note that I know has a budget surplus of any size...now TRADE surplus is a different matter.
