Infographic: U.S. States vs. World Economies

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.

So, what happens when you break out the economic stats amongst individual states? The Economist created a map that matches each state with a national economy of comparable size as measured by gross domestic product in 2009.

Can't help wondering what would happen if the countries listed found themselves next to the neighbours shown in the above map. Political chaos? New alliances? Certainly many coastal cities would be surprised to find themselves landlocked LOL!
