In this region south and West of the Potomac River, also very far South of the Mason Dixon line, the most arrogant and staunch yuppies found in the Commonwealth if Virginia can be found. Even those considered "lower class" in this region live far better than your average person. In addition, while there are a high number of immigrants in this region, many of them prefer to be considered "Caucasian."
Northern Virginians love to play dual roles. First they claim to be "northern" which in fact they are just a step above Red Necks and one step below Hill Billies on the evolutionary chain.
Finally they all proclaim they are
from the District of Columbia or "D.C
If a Northern Virginian was dropped of on Martin Luther King Ave in SE Washington, or Suitland PKWY where D.C. and Prince Georges County Maryland boarder, said Virginian would pee his/her pants.
Most people from the "NOVA" area have never been beyond Georgetown in the District of Columbia (which ironically boarders Arlington County/Roslyn V.A.) and very few of them ever venture beyond their sheltered communities and ways of life.

Some immature Northern Virginians condescend to Southern Virginians and whine about their tax dollars going to the south. Some immature Southern Virginians complain about how arrogant, bratty, and stupid they like to imagine Northern Virginians are. Most people in both regions are normal, perfectly nice people who know better than to define themselves by the patch of geography they happen to live on.
Bob: Hi, I'm from Southern Virginia.
Alice: Uh oh... you're not an illiterate, racist redneck, are you?
Bob: Um, no. You're not a shallow, soulless trust-fund brat, are you?
Alice: Not really. Hey, do you want to go make fun of Californians instead?
Bob: Yeah, I can't stand those guys!
I'm moving to Northern Virginia.
Northern Virginia has thirty mile back ups.
Yes, Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties are now technically in Northern Virginia as of mid 2007. If you have a problem with it, move away.
