    That’s a very specific measure! I’d guess around $150?

      $150? It’s more than that.

      Remember, we’re giving you credit if you get it within $20,000. The scale can be considered a clue.

  2. Old Bill says:

    I’m estimating the GDP at 500 billion (5 * 10^11) and with an area of 7.7 million square km (7.7 * 10^6) the GDP per sq. km is $65000.

  3. Nathan says:

    I found a reference to a GDP of around 1.2 trillion, which would make the per square km GDP around $155,000.

      That’s about it. Certainly within the margin of error.

      A lot of it depends on the exchange rate from USD.
