I actually find it surprising that London only beats out Sweden by some 20% or so. See, Sweden has less people than London, and London is all high-infrastructure area, and a huge financial hub.

Well to be fair, that's in large (most?) part due to the financial sector that might soon be moving because of Brexit.

I guess we'll need to check back in about 5 years or so and see where the figures stand then.

London produces 22% of the UK's $2,749 trillion GDP

... which would be about $604B USD. Sweden's GDP is $570B and Belgium's is $535B:
