The kids there think they have money, but that's only because they've only been exposed to Bawlmurr city.
Unlike HoCo and MoCo, no one really lives in McMansions and a garage of European luxury cars. Everyone is either slightly above the poverty line or just plain middle class.
When the kids grow up they get exposure to other parts of Maryland, they realize they're either really white trash or their daddy couldn't hack it in MoCo and HoCo so he settled on BalCo to avoid Bawlmer.
We might not be as rich as MoCo or HoCo but we know we're better than them.
