That part of the southeastern United States comprising the states of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina.

Also an archetypal realm in American mythology, a faraway place inhabited by hillbillies (either funny or menacing), aristocratic plantation owners, kindly old tale-spinning African-Americans, hot-blooded rebels, corrupt and sadistic lawmen, alluring females, gallant and charming males, and Bible-beating fundamentalists.

     Contary to HCl's sheltered belief, the Deep South is a rapidly modernizing place. People are still ignorant, have a thick accent and are superficial, but very few own trailers. We also have cablemodem/DSL connections, computer stores and sushi bars everywhere, more skimmies than any other region in the U.S. and last but not least, hot boiled peanuts.

     Seriously though, metropolitan areas are concentrated and have a tight infrastructure, people are either hyper-religious (usually baptist) or full-blown atheists out of disgust. Once one moves out of these areas there are mostly trees, one or two hick-towns every twenty or so miles... It's mostly a place of crass contrast, extreme poverty literally borders the business district by one block in my city.
