Which country does each Indian state compare with?

We know that we add an Australia every month to our population.

We know that each state of India is big enough to be a separate country by itself. Like each vertical in an Infosys or TCS could be a respectable-sized company itself.

But The Economist has done a great job bringing such comparisons alive. We know now that Maharashtra's GDP is as much as Singapore; its per capita GDP compares well with Sr Lanka's and its population with Mexico. Karnataka's GDP is as big as Coratia's; per capita GDP as much as the Phillipines and population as much as Italy's.

Enjoy this interactive map and gain insight into relative size of India's states and other countries.
