Slang term for the city of Spokane Washington. The name has come about because the city and region of Spokane has the highest populace of Eastern European immigrants. The delightful and intriguing cultural background of the former Soviet-bloc people has lent to the name "Spokanistan" (as in Kazahstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, etc).
Come to Spokanistan. It is nice!

Filthy town in eastern Washington with its unmaintained roads, poorly maintained buildings, crime, vagrants, drugs , prostitutes, foreigners and oppressive law enforcement. By no means is it a comparable to southern California crapholes like Compton, Los Angles, Pomona, Rialto, Victorville or San Bernardino but it is by far the armpit of the inland northwest.
Ok kids keep your heads down and the windows up we’re comin into Spokanistan . Stick and move! Get what we need and lets get the hell back across the border.
