What region sums up America the best? In terms of to an outsider what region would look like average America.

For some reason the foreigners I meet tend to mention Texas as their overall impression of the US the most.

The Midwest. The South has too much of a distinct culture and is practically its own country as it struggles to be respected by the rest of the nation.

Not practically. It is.

Well no it isn't. It is part of the United States of America and has been for generations.

Midwest, definitely............as someone else pointed out, the South is its own distinct culture and hell, at one time it actually was its own separate country. Only in the last few decades has the South started to become more like mainstream America because of a mass exodus to southern cities like Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston, Dallas, etc. And even then, this is only true in parts of the South that people actually want to move to. Places like Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, etc. remain very culturally southern, for better or for worse.

Midwest.

It has a little bit of every region, less influence from the west, but it is there.

True, but I'm wondering if southerners are unfamiliar with the fact that there are Midwestern states (especially Upper/Great Lakes Midwestern) that are also very distinct culturally. Not that I disagree overall.
