Reddit user Phanethi created this map to show what countries most closely resemble each state’s 2012 GDP (Gross Domestic Product), regardless of population.

It’s no surprise that California, New York and Texas have the largest GDPs in the country because they also contain the US’s largest economies.

California had a GDP of about $2 trillion in 2012, which trumps Canada’s $1.82 trillion.

Illinois chalks most of its $695 billion to private industries and manufacturing, a number comparable to Saudi Arabia’s oil-driven $711 billion.

Arguably the most unexpected revelation is Indiana’s $298 billion topping Israel’s $241 billion.

Colorado’s GDP will undoubtedly establish itself as one of the most productive should the state maintain its status as the cannabis capitol of the US.
