So here is an interesting concept: the map of the US was taken and states renamed for countries that has roughly the same GDP. The original website I saw it on is here.
It's an odd comparison, and I think it helps to show how a) disproportionate wealth in the US is, and b) how our "poverty" in the US doesn't even touch the rest of the world... (though I will admit the map gives no thought to population - but it is still interesting).

If you want a list of where each state sits and what the GDP is for country/state let me know and I can e-mail it to you.
