Ah, my bad on TV culture.

In terms of similarity to Yankeedom....
a fondness for social engineering (maybe), strong belief in cultural conformity 9maybe but we won't admit it), remake the world in its own image.


are about the only bits I see as UK also.

Left coast
This skinny nation hugs the Pacific Ocean, starting south of San Francisco, winding its way through Portland, Seattle and Vancouver BC and finishing in the fjords of Southwestern Alaska.
Settled by both New Englanders and Appalachian midwesterners, the Left Coast's culture reflects the hybridity that results from the unique combination. Although both groups of settlers inhabit different parts of this nation (New Englanders generally lived in the cities and towns while Appalachian midwesterners inhabited the more rural areas) their cultures combined to create a Left Coast culture that mixes Appalachian self-expression with Yankeedom utopianism. The Summer of Love, conceived in San Francisco, is the most prominent example of the value of self-expression combined with the desire to serve the common good of humanity. This region clashes exclusively with the Far West, and gets along brilliantly with Yankeedom. Predictably, the region is a Democratic stronghold in elections.

Opposites: Far West, Deep South,
Similar with: Yankeedom, New Netherlands, Greater Appalachia
