And the region between Columbia and Charleston is pretty much empty. There's really nothing between these two cities.
Thats not true. The outer suburbs of the Charleston metro area are maybe 30 minutes from the outer suburbs of the Columbia metro. Columbia sprawls even closer to Charlotte.

The three metropolises alone have almost 4 million people. Add in the exurban communities in between and you have almost 5 million people...the size of metro Atlanta! That's no small potato.

Are you serious? What are the outer suburbs you are referring to? Or perhaps you drive much faster than I do? Orangeburg isn't a suburb of either city and quite a lot of rural land separates Orangeburg from Columbia and Charleston.

Last time I checked an area like metro Atlanta wasn't comparable to the BosWash Corridor (like 70M people). You can't be serious with this thread.

More like from St. Matthews to Harleyville. Orangeburg is just a smaller city that bridges the gap between metro Columbia and metro Charleston.

Not even. SD-Sea is nearly a 1,300 mile stretch, as opposed to the 440 mile stretch between DC and Boston.
