The economy of the United States is the world's largest national economy. Its nominal GDP was estimated to be $14.3 trillion in 2009, approximately a quarter of nominal global GDP.

  • This is crazy!!! Some big countries there...or so I thought before seeing this illustration
  • Wow, Texas matches up with Russia. Crazy.
  • Totally puts things into perspective.
