Live long and prosper, um?

I came upon a couple of illustrations in the Bangor Daily News recently that show how this State measures up to a certain foreign country.  Each State is represented so we all can see how our State measures up.
The first illustration shows the average lifespan of people who live in each state compared to one country or another in the rest of the world.  This map was compiled by Atlantic writer Olga Khazan.

The second map, compiled by Redditor Phaenthi  illustrates the "gross domestic product" of each state and is compared again to a foreign country.

Hey!  I have to think of these things you know!
