Some of the states of the United States have populations larger than many countries. Several states have populations that would put them in the top third of all countries.

I put together a list of the countries, ranked by population, but added in the 50 American states as if they were countries...[click]

I found other things intriguing about the list you posted.

California has a larger population than Canada!
Indonesia is #5! Pakistan is #7, and Bangladesh
is #8! The population of Pakistan and Bangladesh
combined is larger than the US (#4)!

Nigeria is #10. Iran has 71million citizens.

Texas has a larger population than Australia.
North Carolina has a larger population than Switzerland,
but what do we have to show for it?

Some odd equalities. In terms of population,
Minnesota = Norway and Kansas = Kuwait!

Wyoming, the US state with the lowest population
(.5m), has more people than Luxembourg.
