It is an unjustified superiority complex about a race based on historical events that no living generation accomplished;When people from a country- based on the historical achievements of their culture- act like they still deserve respect for things people did in generations that aren't even living anymore.
" Greeks have one of the worst cases of historplex ever. All they ever do is bemoan about how they invented astronomy, philosophy, etc. What the hell have they done in the past.. I don't know 1000 years?"
