The US state of New Mexico. A play on the state's official nickname, "Land of Enchantment". The reference is really to the state's high poverty rate and relative lack of economic opportunity, which renders many people unable to get up enough money to leave, even if they want to.
I'd like to move to LA or Seattle, but here in Carlsbad, I can only get a part-time dishwashing job. So I guess I'm stuck here in the Land of Entrapment.

Santa Fe, New Mexico. A play on New Mexico's state saying 'Land of Enchantment' (which is also true), because people either never leave Santa Fe or they return eventually.
Man, Santa Fe is the Land of Entrapment.' I'll never be able to move to California.
