Location - Northern Virgina is jagged circular area that is bordered by Potomac, Maryland and DC..OH and of course..Regular.. Virginia. Where the "Mid-Atlantic"(People who can't except the fact that they live in the south and would like to be called middle) ends. Nothern Virgina's "border" ends in Stafford County, Virginia. Which beside Spotsy, Virginia which is nicknamed "Back in the Bushes".

People - Scum of the earth to "regular" Virginia and consider Virginia to be a redneck filled confederate flag waving hick state. They refuse to be apart of Virginia and the South since most of the inhabitants are rich northern migrants who came to exploit cheap land and labor in the 70s and have spawned Nova yuppies ever since. The public schools look more like private schools. They refuse to acknowledge the fact they are below the mason-dixon line and that the area has a rich confederate history also they consider themselves superior to any and everyone.Don't bother debating anything with them, they think have an answer to everything.
They do not consider themselves to be apart of Virginia at all and you'll hear them refer to themselves as the 51st state which we proud Virginians wish would happen.
Don't expect to see the 1861 Virginia Flag on any house in Northern Virginia.
Virginan - Look ya'll give us some of southern maryland and you can stick Northern Virginia up your ass. *Virginia crowd cheers*

Marylander - Eeeaaah I guess that's a good trade, southern maryland has nothing in common with us and northern Virgina has nothing in common with you all so let's do it.

Northern Virginians - YIPPIE! *nerd cheers* WE ARE FINALLY APART OF MARYLAND!

The crown of Virginia, NOVA is the only decent place in the state. It's money is stolen and given to the rejects--I mean the rest of Virginia. Although we attend the colleges scattered around the state, we quickly return when we finish because there is no other place with great job opportunities and high salaries. We do not stop, stare, and gaze when we see people that are not white. We are not southerners, nor would you find a confederate flag anywhere in the area, we actually take offense to being called southern. Luxury is a common site and most of the time a standard. We forced Virginia to vote blue in the elections :D We are the voice of Virginia. The only other great populations are either because its the capital of the state or because we needed a place to buy beach property in our state. Other than that everyone lives in NOVA. Its the best place with the greatest things to do. I would go down there and tell it to all you Southern Virginians but:

1.) I would get no cell phone signal

2.) GPS probably hasn't been invented there yet

3.) I don't have 4 wheel drive to take dirt roads

4.) I'm not white so I would get shot
Californian: Hey you're the new guy from Virginia?
Me: Oh no, not me, I'm from Northern Virginia

A part of Virginia that is one of the richest (Great falls, Ashburn, Centreville, Chantilly,Arlington, Sterling ect) but yet over populated with illegal immigrants and Spanish and Asian gangs. Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Manassas, PWC, and even Loudon County have some of the worst illegal immigration problems in the nation. Allot of Northern VA is turning into a little Haiti or something except more like a little Honduras. There are Peruvian and el-Salvadorian places galore in NOVA. An entire part of Falls Church is all Vietnamese. A section of Alexandria City called Arlanda is known as little El-Salvador (Its on wikipedia!). Annandale has a section that is all in Korean. I can’t read that shit. It starts to make me wonder is this even America? I don’t know how this is one of the richest places when New York or New Jersey cost almost twice the cost of living it does here. And that’s a fact! Overall if you decide to come check this place out The city of Alexandria is probably the only one I would check out. And for the Centreville and Chantilly people that keep putting up this and that about there the gang capital of NOVA bullshit. Let me make this perfectly clear NOVA is soft except for Alexandria and the outskirts of Falls Church like Culmore. So shut the fuck up. And for southern Virginians that hate us for well, why? Fuck off get a life. I would much rather live here that in the seven cities or Richmond simply because there is a hell of a lot more to do here than down there. That southern hospitality talk is bullshit most people in Richmond are assholes. VA Beach is a hick town with ignorant ass people and the same crime rates as NOVA so stop acting all thug and shit. Here’s my point Alexandria 6.0 per 100,000. Virginia Beach 5.6 per 100,000. Suffolk co is one of the safest counties next to Fairfax look it up on wikipedia SO SHUT THE FUCK UP!
I live in Northern Virginia.

I used to like Northern Virginia.

Majority of these definitions of 'Northern Virginia' were artfully created by uneducated and bitter Southern Virginians. Northern Virginia (Often referred to as 'Nova') is a suburban location that is diverse in many aspects.

Fairfax County is one of the richest counties in the entire country according to the annual income made by families. Majority of those who acquire such a salary made it through college. This is a major turn-off to southerners. God forbid they speak proper English, and learn something other then how to properly lynch a "foreigner." Oh. and southern hospitality my ass, majority of them are rude, and racist. (Not to be stereotypical, but it's true).

The children of NOVA, according to these southerners, are "rich little brats." I'm sorry we have people (parents, guardians) who provide for us, and you're stuck shoveling cow shit for the rest of your life. Northern Virginians live comfortable lives; food in the stomach, house above your head, and a sexy ass car parked in the mansions garage.

Everyone has one life to live, we're just making ours worthwhile (unless you're into reincarnation; that's a completely different story).The material world can be a big part of our lives, but we still have morals, and we still have respect for others. Northern Virginians are accepting and welcoming people.

This is the land of opportunities, and while southerners are giving cows hand jobs, we're living the good life.
Southern Virginian in NOVA: TOO MANY COLORS! Time to get my rifle from back when my gramps was in the confederacy ya'll!

Northern Virginian: You're from Southern Virginia aren't you? It's okay, we understand you don't understand anything, but we'll accept you into our kind community.

Not to be confused with the rest of Virginia. More accurately considered part of D.C.

Where I live!! its really different from the rest of Virginia, not better or worse just different. nobody really considers it southern, either, but a lotta people move here from the south. sum people think n.Virginia should be its own state but i think thats stupid... a lotta people from southern (and middle maybe?) Virginia think that northern Virginia is snobby and a disgrace to their southern state of Virginia. a lotta people from northern Virginia think southern Virginia is hick and northern Virginia is better. but umm, i dont.. some people say northern Virginia is wealthy and i used to think that i guess kinda but now i go to a different school and there are sum really, really ghetto people so i dont anymore.
i love Virginia!!!...all of it!!

Region that makes southern virginia hicks envious because of its jobs, wealth, and abundance of literate adults.

Region used to describe a suburban area of DC; a region where cool people live.
