Virtue comes from the country - British gentry, the American West, the Australian Outback etc. The very concept of 'noble' comes from the Roman Equate/Equestrian 'owner of a horse'.
I couldn't care what some (not you) Newtown hipster, Prius driving, fairy boy pleb thinks of them, those people never make hiring positions.
Suggest you brush up on your history. The equites were actually rich non-nobles who bought horses to distinguish themselves from the plebs on the battlefield. Basically, your typical ancient nouveau riches trying to buy their way into nobility (or occasionally marry into it, as they did with Caesar's family IIRC). Don't start me with virtue and the American west... You sound like a Levis commercial. Wounded Knee ring a bell for you? Probably not...
Anyway, aside from the historical inaccuracies your version of what constitutes virtue is based on a set of myths. Saying all country people are virtuous is akin to saying all country people are inbred. I'm sure in some cases one or the other is true.
