It should be interesting, in addition for non-American quiz takers, because the cultural differences are so intriguing.
Anyway, here are my results:

The most oddly shaped nation of the eleven, The Midlands originate in Central Maryland and Pennsylvania, including Baltimore and Philadelphia, and stretch through Ohio, Indiana, and Ilinois before emptying out into Iowa. From there, it stretches south towards the Panhandle of Texas, and in the north, it wraps around Yankeedom, ending in Toronto, and Windsor, Ontario. Big cities include Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and St. Louis in the U.S. and Toronto, Canada.
This nation is the origin of the heartland culture, the middle America lifestyle that aims to benefit the middle class, but rejects top-down government intervention. It's history starts with the English quakers of Pennsylvania, but has been ethnically diverse from the beginning, harboring German and Dutch farmers. Although creating an ethnic, economical utopia was never a priority, they still side with Yankeedom on the belief that ordinary people should be the benefactors of society. Politically, this is a dramatic swing region, with battleground states such as Ohio, Indiana, and Iowa holding important votes for politicians. Usually, the more moderate politician is elected in these regions.
Opposites: Deep South, Yankeedom
Similar With: El Norte
This isn't surprising, since among my forebears are both ethnic English Quakers and German immigrants, and I was raised in the Midwest. Also, I have a strong conservative, communitarian streak that is also pro-labour (Rust Belt) and pro-agrarian. Anyway, I'd be interested in where other people get placed here!
