What is the most overstated / understated topic from or about your country.

The TED community encompasses all from around the world from Canada to Ghana, Kenya to Tuvalu. We have different strengths and weaknesses. Governments and corporations with voices try and portray the best of the country sometimes exaggerating while the main issues swept under the carpet.
But who knows their country better than the common man, and who is a better critic than an well-exposed person.
Please share on what you think is your country's best or worst ideals.
