We all have a general idea as to which states contribute the most to the nation’s GDP, but this handy map offers a little more food for thought. Created by Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute, the map compares the gross domestic product of each U.S. state with the national GDP of economies abroad.

New York state, where the population amounts to about 19.75 million folks (8.406 million live in the city–btw), generated about $1.23 trillion in 2013 and consequently had a GDP roughly equivalent to Spain, where there’s about 42.3 million inhabitants. Overall, New York is the 16th biggest economy in the world—and we’ve got a pretty productive state. 

Check out how the rest of the country compares in the map above.
