According to the 2010 national census Springfield, Missouri is a town with a population of 159,498 which makes it a relatively larger town in south west Missouri which is an area of the state that is predominantly dotted by towns with populations less than 10,000.
Anyone who lives in Springfield can tell you that many of the residents lack two brain cells to rub together. Springfield has been considered one of the worst places to raise a family due to it's unusual high crime rate for a town of it's size.
Typical residents of Springfield are ill tempered, narrow minded and defiantly judgmental of those who don't fit their skewed perception of "normal" which is a bearded redneck the shoots a gun and thumps a bible and has a domineering over weight girl friend that bosses him around.
There has been a long time feud between the lower class, thuggish north side residents and the snobbish, upper class south side residents. Although the south side has less crime and has far better public schools with students that out achieve most of the north side students academically it still seems ridiculous to ethnically divide a town that takes less than 30 minutes to drive from one end of town to the other.

Person 2: Yes, he seems pretty dumb.
Person 1: He told me he's from Springfield, Missouri.
