Pennsylvania. The nice part of Pennsylvania. Far removed from the drug and gang violence of Philadelphia and the wrenching rust belt desperation of Pittsburgh, the area, when depicted on a map resembles the capital letter 'T'. The term most likely originated in the soulless suburbs of Northern New Jersey, upon which point usage spread to Central and South Jersey and ultimately, the white ghettos of South Philadelphia, and that city's affluent suburbs.
Ted: 'Youre from Philly?'
Tip: 'No, Pennsylvania.'
Ted: 'Oh. What's the difference?'
Tip: 'We aren't rude or obnoxious'

The Capitol of Pennsyltucky is Camp Hill- we invade Harrisburg at dawn.

I'm headed up the Northeast Extension into Pennsyltucky.

Rural parts of Pennsylvania with large concentrations of country folk, noted for interest in Hunting, Country Music, NASCAR, trailer life, Wal-Mart and working at the plant. Often spotted wearing camouflage with full grown beards or unkept caveman appearance driving pickup trucks with gun racks. Note: PA has the largest Rural population of any state, not everyone who lives or is from these regions is a red neck, hick or country bumpkin and most who don't dislike the reference "Pennsyltuckey" and find it insulting.
The Film "Deliverance" well not that extreme all the time in Pennsyltucky

The large section of the middle of Pennsylvania where more cars are seen on lawns than the roads. Cousin sex is acceptable, and New Jersey license plates are generally despised.

**Note: The greater Harrisburg-York-Carlise region does not follow the general definition for Pennsyltucky. People there are civilized and own homes instead of trailers, yet don't carry the asshole persona you might find in Philadelphia. However, even here Jersey is despised. New Jersey sucks.
I drove 50 miles outside of Harrisburg, and some guy in Pennsyltucky made me squeal like a pig.

refers to a stretch of land (mostly in the Apalachian Mountains) ranging from Kentucky through West Virginia and into Pennsylvania where double wides, stock cars, and pick up trucks dominate....

Often referred to or directed towards the state of Pennsylvania however the second syllable "tucky" or "tuckey" can also be applied to any state name, akin to the stereotype that Kentucky is full of red necks and backwoods Bubbas though anyone with common sense and is well traveled know they exist in all 50 states in some shape or form.
Travel the 50 states and look around and you will see Pennsyltucky in everystate.

What the "civilized" folks (big city assholes who think they're better than "hicks" just because they have gangs, drugs, and a high crime rate) call the rural areas of Pennsylvania. People living in these rural areas are stereotyped as being "uneducated", while that is often untrue. Another common misconception is that people from rural areas often marry members of their own families.
I'm sick of choking on city air. Let's go up to Pennsyltucky.

The region of the United States stretching from northern Pennsylvania, south through the center of Pennsylvania, west into West Virginia and finally into Kentucky. Pennsyltucky is a continuous region bound together by similar demographics and geography. At about two-hundred miles wide and nearly a thousand miles long, Pennsyltucky composes a large area of the
eastern United States. Generally, the region does not include urban areas, with Philadelphia and Pittsburgh most commonly cited as excluded. Everyone's welcome though!
Pennsyltuckian: "Let's drive across Pennsyltucky, there's a bluegrass festival in Louisville this weekend!"
Non-pennsyltuckian: "What?" "Yuck!" or "I don't know, is it safe?" or "Is there any good shopping on the way?"
Pennsyltuckian: "..."
