Northern Virgina or "NOVA" for short is an area in the due North and North Eastern part of Commonwealth of Virginia. This area is dominated by the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William, and the city of Alexandria. In addition it contains many smaller cities which share common boarders/land with the larger counties.
In this region south and West of the Potomac River, also very far South of the Mason Dixon line, the most arrogant and staunch yuppies found in the Commonwealth if Virginia can be found. Even those considered "lower class" in this region live far better than your average person. In addition, while there are a high number of immigrants in this region, many of them prefer to be considered "Caucasian."
Northern Virginians love to play dual roles. First they claim to be "northern" which in fact they are just a step above Red Necks and one step below Hill Billies on the evolutionary chain.
Finally they all proclaim they are
from the District of Columbia or "D.C
If a Northern Virginian was dropped of on Martin Luther King Ave in SE Washington, or Suitland PKWY where D.C. and Prince Georges County Maryland boarder, said Virginian would pee his/her pants.
Most people from the "NOVA" area have never been beyond Georgetown in the District of Columbia (which ironically boarders Arlington County/Roslyn V.A.) and very few of them ever venture beyond their sheltered communities and ways of life.
