Arrogance and ignorance having a direct correlation with the land area of a country? What herb have  ...

Small country size significantly increases natural exposure to and exchange with other Peoples and vice versa for bigger countries.
You'd have a hard time remaining ignorant of and arrogant towards other places and peoples in somewhere like Luxembourg compared to in a large country.

What about a small pacific country? It is isolated from other countries and would be far more insular than Australia which receives huge numbers of tourists and immigrants every year.

You have a germ of an idea there but there seem to be too many other factors at play here for that theory to stand up on its own. Good effort though.

You are bringing in other factors that sure make an influence too, but under ceteris paribus assumption the correlation shows significant.

could be interesting, but you can just compare it under ceteris paribus yourself.
Compare similar Groups, Americans with European counterparts, in Europe Brits with Channel Islanders (Just wanted to write Irish, but then again the blood-alcohol level also makes a difference) Francophone Swiss with their French Counterparts, South Germans with Austrians and Swiss, Northern ones to the Dutch, Ucraine with Russia.

I'd say in general high transaction costs of exchange with other Peoples, which increase with insular location, Mounainous location, and of course, size of the own place.

I'd like to see a study done with people in the same legal jurisdiction (a country for example) but made more or less isolated by geographic, economic or other variables.
