Around the world in 52 states

I love maps. One good map can keep me amused for hours. A whole blog full of them is my perfect time-waster.

Here's a good one: an economic map that dramatically illustrates the size and market of the US relative to other countries by comparing states to countries of roughly similar income:

Click on the map to go to the larger map at the site, Strange Maps. You'll never guess which 'state' New Zealand matches.

DC. ha, how appropriate.

What a great map though!

Would also like to see a list comparing corporations to nations. That is also sobering.

Such shows how awfully parochial and straw brained all those US haters are.
