I recognise that we're all human and subject to a whole lot of nasty shit, and if my nation had been the most powerful in the world - it would be just as corrupt and pathetically distasteful as yours is. It's the nature of power and human beings when mixed.
So, how about being a bit of a grown-up and stop being proud of corruption, greed and incompetence?
