Are you under the impression that the whole of North Carolina is like some undeveloped 3rd world country, except in the triangle??

The most urbanized part of the state is by far the Piedmont area of the state which runs essentially the length of I-85. This is where roughly 60% of the state's population resides and most of the larger cities.

Actually, Oklahoma is a good choice - low unemployment, good cost of living...

With the Base Realignment & Closure plans (known as "BRAC"), Fayetteville and the surrounding areas are expecting a boom within the next couple of years.

I have got your point but no, I am not accenting that NC areas are like "...some undeveloped 3rd world country, except in the triangle. " I am trying to get some clear picture about place where I am living right now, and as far as I am new here (NC), I am looking some place to apply my dream... which is going to be an embodiment of some new era cultured place to visit at least once before you die...

I heard about I-85, and even was makie some trip along this HW, but I thought they 60% of population are settled accasuanly?
Sorry if I was unclear that was asking just about NC.

2 LRoyal10900:
Is there any document(link) in regards of Fayetteville area expectations?

Is North-East region of Raleigh has some movement to get some highest level of development?

English is not your first language is it?

IF I understand your question right this is what I can tell you:
The Charlotte metro region has the largest population in NC with Raleigh and it's metro being second and Wilmington being third.

Raleigh in particular has a very educated work force - a concentration of phD's not seen in many other areas of the country thanks to all the companies and research going on in Research Triangle Park. Charlotte is a very white collar business town. Both cities are highly "developed". There are pro sports teams (NFL, NBA, hockey, AAA baseball) and some of the best colleges and hospitals in the country in both regions. I am not sure what your area of expertise is so I cannot suggest the best place for you to seek employment. Just be assured there is a lot of "developed country" here - you should plan a visit!
