GDP equivalents map

Here's a fun little map: each state is labeled with the name of a country with equivalent GDP. From strange maps via Sullivan.

One interesting thought this map provokes is that Iran, the latest uber-bogey man of the neocon warmongers, has an economy similar in size to that of Alabama. I think that gives some much needed perspective.
