The suburban area radiating outward from Washington, D.C. Low-density housing on large plots of useless land consisting of man-made ponds and neighborhoods that boast names like Fair Oaks, Cedar Lakes, Penderbrook, Willow Landing, and etc. The region has some of the best public transportation in the U.S., but the residents of the area feel too entitled to utilize it, causing some of the worst traffic in the nation. In NOVA, there are no "Main Streets" - merely 4-laned highways full of 5-minute redlights at every intersection. Aside from Arlington, the area houses mostly families or married couples. Finding an individual who is willing to have a non-hostile conversation with you in NOVA is very difficult, as the NOVA resident species is very unfriendly. Scientists have proven that NOVA is the worst place on Earth.

Ok so its funny how all these Northern Virginians can sit here and diss Southern Virginia when honestly they do not what they are talking about. Ok they claim that they have the highest Education in the state BUT! Virginia Beach, Hampton,York county,Williamsburg, and Chesapeake are considered the highest educated schools in America. Also they want to considered us Country when Virginia beach and Norfolk are the biggest cities in the state. They want to play "ohh we got fairfax" fairfax is so small they can't even convert into a city (like Norfolk became independent and became a city and Princess Anne county became Virginia beach). Another thing they want to claim is how we are all unemployed and poor when our military bases control their military bases we basically protect NoVa from terrorist since you know we are the biggest military area in the country. We do have high end government jobs here from harbors, world trade centers, and port authority. Another thing is how we are all country but their are more Native New Yorkers and northern in SoVa than there is in NoVa. Not to mention its more ghetto up there then it is down here most cities in Hampton Roads made the lowest crime before you start judging please learn the facts
NoVa really thinks that they're somebody

An Australian radio network, broadcasting in the following states:
# Nova 96.9 Sydney (96.9 MHz) - started April 2001
# Nova 93.7 Perth (93.7 MHz) - started November 2002 (first new commercial station in 22 years)
# Nova 106.9 Brisbane (106.9 MHz) - started August 2004
# Nova 91.9 Adelaide (91.9 MHz) - started August 2004 (first new commercial station in 20 years)

They play shitty pop music, which is bad most of the time. They also claim to never play more than 2 ads in a row. They make up for this by playing more 2 ads. And more and more and more.

Nova can also be an adjective for "shitty pop music".
"That's so nova!"

"Never more than 2 ads in a row here on Nova"
