You're right MouseZ, my apologies, I was just having a bit of fun.
Interstate rivalry in Australia is always subject for some good hearted stirring.
It's the old state rivalry thing up here. Those in Victoria (known as Mexicans cos they're south of the border) bag out those in New South Wales (known as Cockroaches, no idea why!) and then Queensland (known as Cane Toads as that's where the cane toad problem originated) pick on NSW and Vic. NSW and QLD are old rivals from way back and to make matters worst there's this thing known as State Of Origin. It's a series of 3 football games only played between NSW and QLD and far out, the old interstate rivalry really gets fired up around State of Origin time. You either support the Maroons (QLD) or the Blues (NSW) and if you support one or the other you're generally a die hard fan. I don't watch football so it doesn't worry me but State of Origin nights are usually fairly big nights in front of the TV from what I've seen.... kind of like the Super Bowl in the USA.
Queenslanders are easy to pick with the way they speak, for some reason the word 'aye' gets put on the end of nearly every sentence whether it's question or not and yes, they speak a bit slower than some.
The Northern Territory and QLD are currently in a 'croc off' ie a competition to find the biggest croc. QLD think they've got it but they fail to realise that their biggest croc was actually imported from the NT so technically we still have that title!
I don't know what other state rivalries there are. I know Tasmania gets picked on a bit but it's all good fun. When the chips are down the country puts differences aside and really pulls together to support each other such as during the floods in Queensland at the start of the year and the Black Saturday fires in Victoria back in 2009.
Canada? One country I would love to visit one day. Love the accents over there too.
