Intersting. When I tried it earlier (hours after it was announced) I could
only get U.S. States and Canadian provinces. It was somewhat uninteresting
because of social, cultural, racial, and political uniformity. I wonder if
they scale the bars based on population size or some other factor. I  only
spent a couple of minutes with the tool and then thought: *aha*!    That's 
just what Noticedtrends has been preaching about and longing for. I didn't
realise that somebody else had beat me to it...

Best wishes,
