    I found this article today online and thought it interesting.
    But I realize this is someone else's opinion and graph.

    Good Graph Friday: Why California is Italy


    If California were its own country, its economy would be equivalent to that of Italy.
    Texas would be Russia. Alaska, you have a lot in common with Oman – economically speaking, anyway. New York, your nearest economic equivalent is Australia.
    Using economic data from 2009, The Economist put together this fascinating map comparing the Gross Domestic Product and population of each state to the most similar country. Click around to find out more about your state's international equivalent.

    Not sure how useful it is, but its interesting for sure.

    TN - GDP of Finland, and population of Laos

    Reading the comments I thought this one was funny "I would have thought California to be more like Greece....bankrupt."
