The latest GDP numbers from the World Bank were released February 1, 2017, and this visualization from HowMuch.net breaks them down to show each country's relative share of the global economy.
The full circle, known as a Voronoi Diagram, represents the entirety of the world's $74 trillion global economy in nominal terms. Meanwhile, each country’s segment is sized accordingly to their percentage of global GDP output. Continents are also grouped together and sorted by color.
Despite the discussions and focus on emerging economies in various forums, the four biggest economies in South America (Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Colombia) produce only about 4% of global GDP, while Africa’s three biggest economies (South Africa, Egypt and Nigeria) produce no more than 1.5%.
