    I live in the Midwest, but I'm a southerner by birth, with deep family roots in Alabama.

    I'm also sure if Long Islanders had their way they'd be a separate state.

    Hell, if you just cut Brooklyn off it'd be the third-largest city in the country, or something like that.

    Most populous state in the union. Boring.

    Aw, c'mon, it's the Pacific NW (Wash, Oreg, Idaho) not west coast - we don't identify with California.

    Pride resident of the "other Washington."

    While we're at it, can we ship the bay area off to go with Oregon and Washington?

    Born and raised in Chicago, lived in Florida for a decade (NOT A FLORIDIAN OR A SOUTHERN [face_plain]) and now I live in Washington, DC. I still have a pretty solid Chicago accent and if the city wasn't in such economic and social shambles I would move back in a heartbeat.

    Minus a fabulous four months, I've lived in the Midwest my whole life (yes, despite the username :p )

    Apparently I'm alone here in Appalachia. Though I wouldn't quite say that I identify with all aspects of West Virginian culture.

    Southwest. I don't actually live there; most of my family does, though, and I love the people and scenery. Proposed to my wife on top of Sandia Peak; 10,500 feet above sea level. :)

    Corn-fed Mid-Western Beer-drinkin' Wisconsinite here. We loves our cheese, our footballs, our fast cars, and our upping of old census threads.

    Born, raised, and despite its many faults, I still love it here in Southern California.

    Are you referring to problems, or the actual faults?

    I'm South Western. Even though I was born in CA, I spent most of my life in NM. It is a beautiful place despite all its misgivings. I now live in Wisconsin which is nice too, but it has a totally different culture.

    Born and raised in Southern California, at one point resided and visited all over the country and the world and I will tell you this from the bottom of my heart with all the sincerity in the world, "THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME"

    I was born a southerner, raised in small town Illinois but I adopted Chicago as my home. And then moved to the suburbs. Suburbia is transdimensional. All places at once. And nowhere.

    I'm only half-American, so this probably only counts as half an answer.

    My American side is Californian; my family is from there, I've visited my grandparents there ever since I was a baby, but I've lived in Colorado for four years, and visited for another four years. While I do feel a sense of nostalgia and even home-iness in California, I honestly feel more comfortable and at home in Colorado, and REALLY love it there. I don't, however, feel a sense of belonging in either - that's my European side taking over :D

    Midwestern/pacific NW

    I use both for whenever they give me an advantage.
