West European?! You're a Brit! My grandmother would be spinning in her grave.

Australia has the same GDP as Florida? The last time I was down there, all I saw were oranges and old people.

Australia is actually a bit bigger

Australia
Population 19,855,288 (2006)
GDP (2007) - $762.887 billion

Florida
18,328,340 (2008 est.)
GDP -$713.5 billion
