    Clearly Europeans have too much money with how dense blue they are colored!

    Outstanding graphic, well done.

    I think it’s good for everyone that our southern neighbors have been enjoying some prosperity lately.

    In keeping with the biases of the source (National Geographic), this map is all colored in in terms of national borders. But within countries, there are wide variations in wealth between cities and rural areas.

    In India, for instance, Mumbai and Bangalore definitely are richer than the vast rural area in between, just as Shanghai and Guangzhou are richer than the interior of China. Russia, Turkey and Brazil all exhibit variations on this rich city, poor hinterland pattern.

    Out of deference for mainland China, Nat Geo seems to have colored Taiwan as lower middle income instead of its actual situation of sharing high income status with Japan and South Korea.

    This would be a better map if it just focused on population and ditched the artificial political borders.
