US Map of the World

This map displays US states renamed as foreign countries with similar GDP. California, for example, is re-christened France (whose GDP is $2.15 tril), Michigan becomes Argentina, and Texas becomes Canada. As the footnotes on the map indicate, it’s not a straightforward comparison, because it doesn’t include population. But it’s a pretty darn interesting visualization nonetheless.
