The cities have high paying jobs that require advanced skills and hard education while the countryside have unemployment and dependance on handouts from the rich cityfolk. The city progress while rular areas regress. Smart kids can't wait to move from the countryside to the city where they can develop and challenge their inteligence. The citydweller needs strong social skills to make it in a quickly changing enviroment where he meets new people all the time, perhaps the most important form of intelligence for pack animals like humans. The social skills of a rural person who never meets new people stagnate. This doesn't prove much about the intelligence of the individual of course but I think it proves that cityfolks are generaly less lazy and try to use their brains full potential.
