I didn't know until this week that Congress has its own geographic service, the Congressional Cartography Program, which generates maps upon the request of Members and staff. How cool is that? I can call some poor sap at the Library of Congress and make him compile a map for me!

If you've ever been to Chicago, you'd know how accurate Illinois-as-Mexico is.

I was surprised by some of the relabeling (Switzerland is only as productive as Georgia? Vermont is comparable with the Dominican Republic?) until I saw this post which points out these are nominal values, not per capita.

Still interesting, because it's saying the US has the economic productivity of all these countries combined.

A few years back, I remember seeing a combined ranking with GDP of nations and profits for major companies. I believe the top four were US, Japan, Wal-Mart, Canada.

The one I saw must have been total assets or something, here's the revenue/GDP list for 2007. Walmart comes in at 22, followed by car and oil companies.
