The United States has an enormous GDP. Sometimes it is easy to forget just how big spending in the USA has become. To highlight the wealth found in the United States, American Enterprise Institute’s Mark Perry¬†created a map that shows which states have the same GDP as entire countries.

America’s $16.7 trillion economy is huge and while it may no longer be the largest in the world, the breakdown by state is pretty staggering.
