A set of four cities on the Mississippi River including Davenport and Bettendorf of Iowa, and Moline and Rock Island of Illinois. It is debatable whether or not East Moline of Illinois is included. It is well known for being the headquarters of John Deere, Whitey's Ice Cream, the only place where the Miss. runs East-West, and an interesting flavor of both states.

Redneck-ville located in the northwestern section, on the Mississippi River, of Illinois. Consists of 5 differint cities (ignore the "quad" part), of Moline, Rock Island, East Moline, Illinois, & Davenport, Bettendorf, Iowa. People from this part of the U.S. have much better values and morals than other big-city folk, like, say, New Yorkers.
Quad Cities? Oh, the one place I most likely won't get pick-pocketed and turn out to be a Democrat!
