Anything below Interstate 80 is considered Ohio's Inland Empire (with Kent and Columbus being two "islands")

Any other similar areas? (This is not as simple as saying "Any suburbia, USA" as there is actually over 2 million ppl living in the Inland Empire)

To Northern Californians, would you consider the South Bay as SF's (more progressive/ productive) "Inland Empire"?
You mean boring area that is known as a hotbed of racism, meth addiction, and boredom. Right now it would be Southern WV.

I would give it to central and eastern Suffolk County (except the Hampton's) and maybe NE Pennsylvania. It has to be an area where people commute long distances to save money on their housing. That isn't North Jersey.

I'd may add the Hudson Valley and in particular, Orange, Ulster, Dutchess and maybe Sullivan Counties.

I imagine that the Eastern Panhandle of WV and South Central PA would be DC's version of the inland empire to an extent

I guess the Pines barren could be the Philly/South Jersey version of the "Inland Empire"

True but the population in the Pine Barrens is very low and the possibility of future sprawl there is nil due to conservation laws.
