Ready... Debt... Go!

After reviewing the data provided for this challenge, we realised that it was difficult to put the massive sums of money and especially the massive amount of debt that many of the Eurozone governments have taken on into perspective.

We then started thinking wondering if we could better understand the data if we rather thought of the government of a country as a person. And instead of receiving taxes, they received a salary. And instead of spending money on the national budget, they spent their money on things that normal families buy such as houses and cars. How would this imaginary person's lifestyle for a given income compare to that of a typical person of the same income in that country?

We decided to focus on Greece since it has been the most topical of the Eurozone countries recently.
