GDP: The World VS US States

Strange Maps has a comparison of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) between US States and foreign countries.

That is to say, the states in the map have been renamed with a country whose GDP as a nation corresponds to the GDP of the state!

It does not take population into account--put another way, it is NOT a per capita representation of wealth.

Coalition, smoalition...we don' need no stinkin' badges!!
