A bankrupt state where folks can be classified into five groups: 1) the faggots, 2) the whores, 3) the assholes, 4) the bastards, 5) the junkies.
- Ray how come you came back from California?

- I didn't belong there.

- Are you a racist though?

- No, I just call them as I see them.

A mythical land depicted in movies, television shows, and other fictional works of the middle 20th century. Seems to have been located in upper Latin America. Was peopled by exuberant, attractive "white persons," a type thought once to have been widespread in the area.

California was consistently represented as prosperous, but this is strictly notional. Present-day inhabitants of the area have found it to be without economic resources.

Compare "Shangri-La."
He: California was so nice. Too bad it never really existed.
She: -- Are you sure?
He: ... Pretty sure.

I live in California. I don't surf, I hate rap music, I went to LA once, and it sucked, Hollywood is overrated, the weather is NOT perfect, I only went to the beach once in my life and I hated it, YES, the governor sucks, no, not all the people are "hot" (thats total bullshit. People always say the people are ALL hot whenever they write a definition about their state.), the schools were good until Arnold(governor) went and took all the money; there are hicks here, there are PLENTY of stupid people, but an equal amount of intelligent people as well, I have lived here all my life, and have only felt two earthquakes, and California isn't going to sink into the ocean anytime soon. However, if you look past all this, California really isn't all that bad of a place to live. It just takes the most shit from other states.
Just a state with lots of people and a dumb governor.
California is to the United States as Italy is to Europe.

Both have the following features:
- completely dysfunctional government
- too much debt
- declining economy
- endemic corruption
- beautiful landscapes and coastlines
- agriculture: olives, wine, citrus fruits, cheese, tomatoes
- natives feel it is important to look good
- natives drive like maniacs in heavy traffic but somehow avoid running into each other
- too many illegal immigrants
- rich people with mansions on a cliff overlooking the ocean
- earthquakes and volcanoes
- nice weather, hot in the summer, rain in the winter
- skiing in the mountains
- swarmed by tourists in the summer
- foodies
- Western movies are filmed there
Video: good looking guy or gal with a tan, wearing sunglasses and a very nice shirt, talking on cell phone while driving, says "Ciao", hangs up, changes lanes abruptly. They drive through a run down suburb populated mostly by olive-skinned people with black hair. They drive towards the mountains. The sunlight is dazzling. The landscape is hilly and dry. The car is a BMW 3-series.

Observer A: that must be Italy
Observer B: no, the buildings are new. It is California.
