Jack: How's the world been treating you?

Peterson: Outstanding! I couldn't ask for more.

I really don't understand the meaning of both sentences. Please help. Thanks 😊.

    What is the context please? Is this conversation set out in something you are reading? These are indeed basically formulaic greetings (as user105719 says) but the idiom is a bit strange to my ears and the enthusiasm of the response seems to go beyond mere formula. I’d expect a response more like, “Fine thanks” – Orbital Aussie Jan 24 at 12:01
