Indian States Are Massive

Some Maps I made in the last few days:

When comparing economic and social data we generally compare like political types: we compare Brazil to China or Texas and California, or even Shanghai and Lagos. (See 19.20.21 for an example of interesting comparisons of megacities). However, in the case of such a populous nation such as India, more insights may be gleaned by comparing individual states such as Karnataka with entire nation states such as France. As this chart shows the population and land area of these two political entities are very similar even if they have very different governance structure.
