The size of 15 Trillion USD

The size of 15 trillion US dollar (15 with twelve zeroes) in a denomination of 100 dollar bill each, the US owes around 17 trillion to the world today. (USA's Public debt)

If you had spent, USD 1M a day since Jesus was born in 1 BC which is two thousand and thirteen years ago, you would not have spent USD 1 trillion even by now. 

Bhutan's total GDP is USD 1.7B (nine zeroes) which would be a tiny peck in that huge mound. 

Ofcourse, most of that money that you see are all cashless. Only 3 percent of the total money supply in the World is paper currency, rest are all bank notes and credits.
