OK, let me help you feel better about yourself.
Your region is the most prestigious in the country, and your city is the best in the world, you have the most intelligent people, the richest people, the crème of the crop. No other region, city, town can even compete with your area. it must be nice being you. Congratulations.

Feel better now??
