People from the midwest. Incorrectly stereotyped as:
Conservative (in actuality, the midwest is very balanced between liberal and conservative)
Stupid (Some of the best public education in the nation is in the midwest)

Correctly stereotyped as:

These people are some of the nicest you'll find anywhere. They aren't as interested in materialism and greed as others in America. Very good work ethic.
East Coaster: You midwesterners are stupid hicks, fuck-bag.
Midwesterner: I'm sorry you think that. Would you like to come in for some dinner?
East Coaster: I feel really guilty for being so mean and making such horrible generalizations about such a nice person.

Get the Midwesterners mug.
People in the "heartland" area of America who are known for their cultural isolation and close-mindedness. Though they are a hard-working and sharp-minded folk, they have the tendency to look down upon you and derive pleasure from making you feel inadequate and stupid when you have essentially done nothing wrong, but rather merely spoken or acted in a way that is outside their limited, and to an extent ignorant, cultural understanding of the world. Confident and arrogant in their efficient way of life, they shudder when confronted with considerable or subversive cultural elements from outside their known world, and often reject them for the threat they pose to their identity and sense of empowerment.
Have you ever been to Chicago and spoken to Midwesterners? A lot of them are more shockingly ignorant than they may ever realize.

The Midwestern special is when you marry your high school sweetheart from the small Midwestern town you grew up in, only for the relationship to dimish more and more over time until it ends in a divorce.
Guy 1: Bro did you hear about Gus and Abbey?

Guy 2: You mean those two high-school sweethearts that got married after high school? They didn't get a serving of the Midwestern Special did they bro?
Guy 1: Bro they did.
Guy 2: That sucks to hear.
Guy 3: Smeh

Khakis, shirt, and tie, but no jacket. It's what guys from the Midwest think is "dressing up," but fail to realize they look like Mormons.
Dude, Austin's going with the Midwestern Tuxedo tonight. Classic Austin.

Get the Midwestern Tuxedo mug.
A no-win situation in which no action is taken because all parties defer to the others. Like a Mexican standoff but with toxic niceness instead of guns.
Every driver at the 4-way stop waved the others along but no one would go since it was a midwestern standoff.
