The states people fly-over when flying from New York to California. They represent the Mid-West and Southern states which are deemed "redneck" states.

These states lack culture and are crawling with uneducated white trash. They tend to show contempt towards the coastal cities, mainly because their own ignorance and low-class lifestyles hold them back from reaching any educational or capitalistic achievements, and thus blame the coastal cities for their own demise. Tourists tend to avoid these states, as there is nothing to do there and they do no contribute to American culture, as do the east and west coasts.
John: People in fly-over states are stuck in their own hell. No Ivy League schools, no exciting cities, and awful weather.

Joe: Yeah, there's nothing to do there. God bless the coastal cities!
