The comparison has been made because both Georgia and Italy are said to be technologically and culturally 50 years behind the times. They are not all high tech, advanced, and futuristic like "Japanifornia".

Nothing about this post makes any sense.

Sydney might also share some sprawl like similarities. Toronto as an urbanized area is more dense than Sydney or Atlanta.

Fulton county in Georgia is actually almost exactly the same land area as the city of Brisbane, Brisbane has about 100, 000 more people.

Though more than half Brisbane city is either national park or land set aside for the airport. No idea about Fulton county.

You're overreaching with this poll. Need to suggest lower tier cities for matches with Atlanta. I would say Seville, maybe Milan (Milan is still a tier above Atlanta), Hamburg, Manchester. Frankfurt, although a tier above Atlanta might be a decent match as far as downtowns go.

That's why in this poll I included the smaller cities in their respective countries for most of the larger cities. For example, if Fukuoka is the most similar, then that counts as a vote for Tokyo.

Hopefully none of them. The world only needs one Atlanta.

There has to be at least one city in the world that looks like Atlanta.

What's wrong with Atlanta? I live here and don't wish I lived anywhere else, besides Tokyo. That's how I view the world, there's Atlanta and there's Tokyo, and then there's everywhere else (many cities I enjoy visiting but don't care to live in).
