Rio and São Paulo background.

São Paulo was a tiny village when Rio was an Imperial Capital. São Paulo wasn´t and shouldn´t be the largest city at all, but a geographic barrier led this to happen.

Since the Rio de Janeiro countryside the terrain is hilly [some mountains reaching 2800 meters], farming was a challenge and the city and State of Rio de Janeiro had a limited economic environment to develop farming and consequently trade in its port.

Further south, São Paulo had a fertile land in its plateau: the "Terra Roxa". The state had big rivers that run from the coast to the continent [running away from the Sea due a mountain range in the Atlantic coast] and farming became a natural consequence.

Farming started slowly but the state became more competitive with time. The same mountain range that made rivers flow to the continent, made São Paulo a dry port. Goods came from the countryside through rivers or railways and were traded in São Paulo before descend to Port of Santos [800m bellow in the coast]. If these mountains didn´t exist, probably Santos would be the largest city in the country today, since the rivers would probably flow to the ocean.

Meanwhile Rio were living its "belle époque", São Paulo was attracting people from everywhere and industry was arising.

In 1930´s, 40 years after all this demographics changes started to happen, foreign and brazilian companies started moving its headquarters from Rio to São Paulo.

In 1960´s, Rio lost is capital status and São Paulo became the largest city.

To this day, these changes are perceived by the culture present in both cities.
Every city has it's cultural changes. It's unstoppable process.

Some of the cities and their rankings being included here are RIDICULOUS.

Cebu? A rival to Manila?

Who ever heard of (or who cares about) those tiny cities in Slovakia? I mean
