If a fifth region is to be added I think the opportunity to identify this location should not be wasted in a mere geographical context. I say the region should be an esoteric astral physical dimension that contains non-physical attributes along the lines of Valhalla or Springfield. Here thoughts and deeds can be nutured and diembodied souls and inhabitants can live in isolated protection. We could also send the Green Bay Packers and people from Boise there too.

Or the Minnesota Vikings - they don't know where they belong, and seem kind of lost. Packers pretty much have it all together.

Which is why they should be the first ones there. That way they can show others how to achieve their level of consciousnesses... And, the rest of the NFL would have a chance this season as well.

I wish we could remove the mid-atlantic region and just go by northeast/southeast.

I agree. The midatlantic term is the most controversial term used to describe NC through NYC depending on the person. I notice people tend to use it in traditionally southern states (VA, NC) when they want to seem more modern to seperate themselves from the south. I think the term should be eliminated or an official definition should be added that removes the chosen states completely from the northeast or southeast region (no overlap).

Where would you draw the dividing line?

Most in NC don't use the mid-Atlantic term; it's pretty rare than and even when it is used, it's more of a strict geographic reference. It's much more common in Virginia and Maryland. These days, I tend to think of it mostly as a reference to areas with something of a south/north hybrid (roughly northern Virginia up through Maryland, maybe southern Delaware) while also recognizing the historic meaning of the term.

This... even in the south you have the upper south, deep south, gulf coast. Midwest you have Upper midwest, lower midwest, plains. NE you have midatlantic/appalachians/new england. West you have the mountain regions, pac nw, california.
All of these areas are pretty different...
NC is NOT mid atlantic, no way. It's definitely the south and bordering the deep south.
