It is a poor reflection upon our society that we now hope for one that forces everybody to be the same. Humanity is defined by our differences, without them, we would just be monotone blobs. Think of the similarity in the fact that we are different instead of the fact that someone else is evil or "racist" because they are different.

In terms of diversity, South America is likely to eventually outcompete all other areas in terms of species number, as more studying happens there. Currently, I'd say South America.

I was going to do that since there are cool species, but we're talking about the best species here lol I mean there are some really cool species in North America, don't get me wrong, but australia has so many awesome species. evidence: coolcolj's journals.

Technically Asia is more diverse but they don't have some dope genera's, so imo Aus will be the best.

I Voted south america because Australia lacks many things, such as fungus growers and army ants (they have a few aenictus species but that's it). Also South America isn't just the rainforest, there is also the deserts of patagonia which have stuff like pogonomyrmex and small honeypots like brachymyrmex giardi.

Australia has large honeypots, but I'm not sure any of them are able to be legally kept.
