Something That's Been Bugging Me

All the (UK) press coverage of the impending Californian electoral debacle says that California has the fifth biggest economy in the world (or would, if it were an independent nation). But the UK is the fourth largest economy in the world, and France is fifth, and there's barely a gnat's whisker of difference between them. So does California really squeeze into the tiny gap, or are the journos all just copying someone else's mistake?
