I guess we can see this potentially happen in Australia.

on a micro level, it would be like Cincinnati taking over Columbus or Cleveland maybe?
I thought it already happened: Melbourne used to be the top city in Australia, and now Sydney is. Melbourne hosted the Summer Olympics first, and was the national capital, etc.
