Pride and prejudice

According to this Japanese government survey in the Japan Times, 91.2% of young American adults are proud to be American, 84.1 percent of similarly young Britons are proud to be British, 81.7% of youthful Japanese feel the same way, followed by 78.0% of South Koreans and 77.1% of the French.

When nearly one out of four South Koreans doesn't feel proud to be South Korean, I wonder how valid or universal the Korea Pride™ meme really is. (And ditto with the Japanese and the French).
