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!

Might as well be considered seperate from Southern Virginia. One day it'll happen, I'm sure. There's a totally different attitude up here in the north. I won't be as arrogant to say we're better though. NoVAns are always amused by visitors to the state who are in awe of the DC sights, and in my case, of Potomac Mills Mall. NoVAns tend to take a lot of our amazing resources for granted, unfortunately. We refuse to call our part of the state "southern, or respond without putting the "northern" in front of Virginia.
Person: So where do you live?
NoVAn: *NORTHERN* Virginia. Not the south. No.

NoVAn: Mehr. *has seen the Wash Memorial 50 times*

A region that should be an independent state. Home to the worst drivers anywhere. Mostly rich areas.

The best place to live. Period. If you're not from northern virginia you're not worth talking to. If you're from Alexandria then I love you!
