A fictitious place at the networking group of a North American Fortune 500 company.
So called because it is occupied by team members of the network operations group in the middle of other team members and is about the same effective distance to the network operations team as countries ending in -stan (Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan etc) are to the headquarters of said company.
It might also be of interest that Netopistan is not a known google search result. According to Google there is no Netopistan, which is curious.
Edward is now in Netopsistan.
