How about mapping BGP info to Per Capita Income. I imagine you might
see a better correlation there.
actually, you don't.
also note that it's not the same kind of metric,
because there is no 'whole pie' to cut up --
you're dealing with per-country means.
also note that per capita income really isn't
wildly different in the US versus other
Internet-using countries --
but brad obliged you anyway, capita income is in here:
i'm not gonna add it to the real page because
the type of metric is fundamentally different
enough to be confusing, and it doesn't add
any additional insight.

Subject: bgp geopolitical analysis (warning: zero operational content.
one of caida's elves (brad) did a cool
visualization of demographic measures of
Internet resources, stratified by continent with
substratification by country (with help of
CIA factbook, RouteViews, and NetGeo).
measures: geographic area, human population, GDP, phones-in-use,
ASes, ISPs, prefixes, addresses....
nothing overwhelmingly surprising here
but compelling nonetheless
(yes, it turns out data can be both)
things are not what they seem to be,
nor are they otherwise.
