Condos vs Countries

In a condo owner association, the richer owners generally vote for improvements and repairs and the poorer owners vote against them. In a country, the richer people generally vote against improvements and repairs and the poor vote for them. Why the difference? In a condo, everyone is taxed equally. In a country, they are taxed based on income. If a condo as a whole is run down, it reflects badly on any of its owners. If an entire country is run down, it enhances the prestige of rich by contrast.
