The Economist: Florida = Netherlands

If Florida were an independent country, its economy would be one of the twenty largest in the world, according to a new report by the Economist. The state's gross domestic product of $737.04 billion places it closest to the Netherlands, the 16th largest economy in the world with a GDP of $796.65 billion.

Population comparisons aren't as glamorous for the Sunshine State. Our population of 18.80 million compares most closely to Angola's 17.31 million, according to the same study.
