So somehow close but different.
Yes to all of that

Where you are born is a random cartographic accident based on where your mother happened to go into labor and other people decided to draw random lines across the globe.
What is there to be proud about?

Also America is the only country I know that is both insanely proud of 'being American' but everybody will also immediately obsessively tell you where their ancestors come from.
