States of USA renamed as countries with similar GDP

by Roman on January 25, 2009

Everyone knows that the US is a rich and a large country – but to get a feeling of its true economic power one should compare it to other countries of the world. Here is a map of the US with state names replaced by country names with similar gross domestic product (GDP) .

States of USA renamed as countries with similar GDP

Explained as simple as possible – GDP is a measure of how much money a country makes or how rich a country is.

Pretty neat comparison as it puts things in perspective for those of us in the US. Thanks for the info!

What strikes me is the small size of Russia!

I thought it was interesting that Egypt was so weak. I’ve seen this before and thought it was really interesting. Good stuff! Keep up the good posts.

I’m surprised that any state is as rich as Saudi Arabia!

Hmm, what is the source of this image – in order to verify the GDP amounts, etc. Interesting. Good that Canada’s not on there – we definitely have a bigger GDP than just one state.

and it doesn’t take into account the fact that some states went bankrupt basically over the course of this meltdown – like California. They’re in so much debt it’s beyond sad.

It also doesn’t take into account, I bet, the fact that some of these countries’ actual wealth comes from foreign depositors, places such as Switzerland and Luxembourg.

There are all kinds of ways to measure GDP.

I agree with you – this map has a number of mistakes! It even doesn’t have a year – so it could be from 1980 or from 2000.
Too bad I have no idea where I originally discovered it.

I sent you a perfect, no-mistake map of the USA with GDP of other countries, Roman. Change it. It’s the real one.

I’m surprised California isn’t Mexico.

Hey Roman November 27, 2009 at 3:30 am

Where is Singapore??? Is it equivalent to 2 or less or more of the states???

Roman November 27, 2009 at 8:06 am

Singapore is not on the map, but if it were it would be about the same size as Egypt is!

Hey Roman December 7, 2009 at 11:06 pm

Thanks for the info, Roman! Anyway, you look cute with that thing on your head.
