It's bigger by a long shot. Look at the Northern parts of Canada, it's very wide and vast.
I checked the interbebz and it said Canada was slightly smaller. But check out the size of Australia on it. And the NL is not that big....

Total area taken up it is larger than the USA, but total actual land area (remove lakes) and the USA is larger - a lot of lakes in central and northern Canada. Well, according to Wiki, but either way, it's closer than what I thought.

That makes no sense - the size of Ukraine is 604,000 SKM - Ireland is 70,000 SKM - but that map has Ireland as bigger.

It's a GDP map.

So Ireland's GDP is the equivalent of a bunch of Las Vegas casinos?

According to a guy Billy Connolly once met, if you were to tip Norway up on it's southern most point, and topple it over, it would reach... Morocco!

But not Moroco.

If you overlaid Chile on the west coast of North America, not only would it be delicious but it would reach from southeastern Alaska to the tip of the Baja Peninsula.

Ireland's GDP is over 200 Billion in Dollars, sorry Hellraiser.

Nevada would be closer to half that.

That French rugby map is awesome. Reminds me of Asterix in Britain. Wish they could do one for the British Isles clubs.

Ouch, it has nothing to do with size, but compares the GDP of US states with GDP numbers of other countries.
