The state we live in. Sometimes we hate it, sometimes we love it. Statistically, it sucks.
Where we live (in the upstate), yes, it is populated by hicks who tote guns, stack junk cars by the hundreds in their front yards, and give 10% of their income to their local baptist church to get the preacher a new gas-guzzling SUV.
The lowcountry, however, is quite charming, from what we've seen.
