This kind of a map is prone to inaccuracies and questions of what really are useful/interesting comparisons, but well, the idea, if nothing else, is interesting: http://strangemaps.wordpress.com/2007/06/10/131-us-states-renamed-for-countries-with-similar-gdps/

What an interesting map! Cool that you looked around the strange maps site, too. Minnesota would have to be Norway...

Long pause in the discussion…
