Contrast: City suburbia
Not like the city because it's quiet, not like suburbia because you don't feel like you're going to explode due to boredom and utter lack of greenery (lawns not withstanding)
A generally quiet region of the world many people choose to live in due to it's tranquility and closeness with nature. Sometimes refered to as and are actually similar to "the boons" and "the bush" or "the sticks".
A.K.A: Middle of Nowhere.
Canadian prairies do not count, unless you already pre-exist there, at which point you ENJOY the miles and miles of absolute nothing. (see SaskatchewanManitobaAlberta)
A good place to get away from it all. (exception: Saskatchewan)
Good examples include the cottage COUNTRY, north of Toronto or Algonquin park (for camping), also includes areas WAY north of Montreal and BC mountain ranges. Areas between Kingston and Toronto are country, werein people live quiet solitary lives with schools in of only 900 people, from K to gr.12.
What we learn from Suburbs, Country and City is that there IS NO PERFECT PLACE TO LIVE.
