Canadians think well of themselves

From the Reputation Institute comes this chart showing the national self-image, defined as trust and admiration, in each of 21 countries. Amazingly, given the amount of grousing about the country going to hell in a handcart, Canadians seem to be pretty proud of their hunk of turf, coming in just behind Oz.

I'm wondering what is happening in the U.S., famed for pride in country and enthusiastic flag-waving, but ranked well down the list. Also note that the Japanese are in a major funk, approaching seppuku territory.
