From 2008 (before economic downturn but still applies): The name of a country which has a GDP equal to that of the corresponding State is shown on this map. Just gives you an idea of how massive the US GDP is.

Jedi do battle at Louvre Star Wars exhibit
AFP – The Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo… Chewbacca.
Home to some of the greatest works of Western art, Paris is now playing host to an exhibit light-years away from the French capital’s traditional fare — hundreds of toys from the last 35 years of the Star Wars saga. Until March 17, Les Arts Decoratifs museum in a wing of the Louvre is hosting epic Jedi battles, stormtroopers on the hunt for droids and grooving aliens at the planet Tatooine’s Mos Eisley Cantina. It may seem an usual subject for a museum that also displays Art Nouveau furniture and Lalique glassware, but Dorothee Charles, the curator of its toy department, said there is a place for Star Wars toys in the annals of art.
“Star Wars was a revolution in the toy industry…. This is the story of the graphic evolution of how a universe is presented,” she told AFP as gangs of excited children — and quite a few nostalgic adults — buzzed around the opening of the exhibit this week.

And finally, we have a new member of the family (not ours, my in-laws). Introducing Harley.
