It's always my belief that, around the world, you have "big country - little country syndrome", or "big city - little city syndrome". Such a syndrome would manifest itself in this way:
- People in Melbourne know what goes on in Sydney, but people in Sydney have got no idea what goes on in Melbourne.
- People in New Zealand know what goes on in Australia, but people in Australia have got no idea what goes on in New Zealand.
- People in Australia know what goes on in the United States, but people in the United States have got no idea what goes on in Australia.
