Are they really good role-models for the US?

Varifrank: Useless Information Department
Question #1: Which has the greater population?

A - Canada
B - Australia
C - State of California

Question #2: Which has the greater GDP?

A - Canada
B - Australia
C - State of California

Question #3: Which has the bigger military?

A - Canada
B - Australia
C - State of California

UPDATE: Yes, It's California. California now surpasses Canada and Australia in Population ( California Population - 38 million, Canada 33 million and Australia with 21 million) and GDP.( Australia 718 billion, Canada 1.1 trillion and California $1.7 trillion) California also has more military strengh as measured in manpower and budget. The one area that both Australia and Canada have more military presence than California is the sea. Both Canada and Australia maintain Naval craft, while California has few aside from "Fish and Game" assets.
They are great places - well I have never been to Australia, but I am sure it is great. Spent very many family vacations Canada.

The point is they are much smaller than the US. As such, they aren't necessarily the best role-models for policy issues.
