    Does it have to do with banks?

    # of banks with capitalization over x, or something?

    But something related to the economy?

    Does it have anything to do with banks or debt?

    You were a lot closer on your first guess.

    Map tracks proper nouns, not concepts.

    It contributes towards it, yes.

    As a clarification: nocho's first guess was partially correct.

    GDP isn't being tracked in the map, not directly. What the map is tracking, the things, also count towards GDP (and significantly) but focusing on that angle isn't going to get you the answer.

    When I say partially correct, I mean this is an incomplete answer.

    Don't think I can give hints that wouldn't give it away, so I'm opening the floor.

    Answer was Forbes' top 2000 companies. Country shading reflected how many top2k companies were headquartered in each.
