        Indiana also has Peru, Brazil, North Manchester, Warsaw, Washington, and of course we can't forget Kokomo.

          But I am not sure that is the locus of our Overlords. It was fun back then, but today, I dont know. It has no "ring" to it.

          Now, if I can only find the Bastille. Storm The Bastille! I am guessing it is in Iowa somewhere... where is that map?

            Versailles, IN is mostly white and it's family incomes would be lower-middle income, though with fairly low rates of poverty.  It has about 2,000 people;  the media market would probably be Cincinnati.  

            The rich don't seem to congregate as conveniently in Indiana as they do in the coastal cities, and we're actually not a place that the 0.01% particularly fancies to live in.  They love doing business here because we are a cheap and dirty state, but prefer the coasts and maybe Chicago to live in.  Low housing values also mean that the 10% can afford houses that would drive the coastal 1% mad with envy.
