The Local Auction Process

When I geo-target my ad to appear in Des Moines Iowa, who am I competing during the auction process? 

 

Am I competing only against bidders who also targeted Iowa? Bidders who set their targeting at a national level? World level?

 

Thanks!

Any advertiser targeting the same area, using the same targeted KW's.
