Here we have found another U.S. map about renaming states names to other countries with similar GDPs.
The map is created using data in 2012. In 2012, California, the largest state economy in U.S., was the 9th largest economy in the world, which was just slightly below Italy’s GDP in the same year. So you can see that California is renamed as “Italy” in this map. Furthermore, Texas is renamed as “Australia”, which is the world’s 13th largest country by GDP.
You can check out the map to see which country produced similar GDP as your state in 2012.
Here is a similar map using data in 2007 that you may compare the differences between two maps.
Please note that economy atmosphere in both the U.S. and the globe were different in 2007 & 2012 that we could not simply comment if the economy in specific state was good or bad just based on the map as further study and comparison are needed.
Feel free to share your views toward these maps or tell us if you have amazed by the maps.
