    How does your state compare to countries around the world?

    I found this map online that compares US states with foreign countries based on GDP (Gross Domestic Product).

    Interestingly some of the supposedly 'backward' Southern states are rated higher than the states that stereotypically look down on them.

    I'll mention no names, you know who you are...

    And the California/France correlation was not wasted on me.



    • California, it is often said, would be the world’s sixth- or seventh-largest economy if it was a separate country. Actually, that would be the eighth, according to this map, as France (with a GDP of $2,15 trillion) is #8 on the aforementioned list.
    • Texas’ economy is significantly smaller, exactly half of California’s, as its GDP compares to that of Canada (#10, $1,08 trillion).
    • Florida also does well, with its GDP comparable to Asian tiger South Korea’s (#13 at $786 billion).
    • Illinois – Mexico (GDP #14 at $741 billion)
    • New Jersey – Russia (GDP #15 at $733 billion)

    I spent a lot of time in the Phillipines when I was in the AF. Football and Jesus are not the two things that come to my mind when I think of the Phillipines. OK yah you are right, Oklahoma and the Phillipines are the only two places that I have ever been mugged.

    You are right California/France is fitting.

    Very interesting. Thanks for posting that!

    Tennessee has the same GDP as Saudi Arabia. Interesting.

    I still say, if the middle East didn't have oil, it would be the poorest region in the world. No doubt.
