Well, there are many Californias, as we know. This map is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but actually somewhat useful at the same time. I would call everything north of the line from the top of the Bay Area to the knee of the dog-leg "the State of Jefferson." That's one part of the state where the social vibe along the coast and in the interior isn't all that different.

curious to see where "L.A. Land" ends and the others begin. Where would Palmdale, Riverside, and Santa Barbara fit in? IMO, they would all fall outside of L.A. Land, but the map looks like it includes all those cities.

Agreed. The real tough part is determing whether Santa Barbara is Central Coast or part of "LA Land"...

on that map, SB would be in LA Land. It looks like the cut off is around S.L.O.

SB is definitely part of the Central Coast. Inland Empire, Central Valley, Sierra Nevada, and Semi-Arid North could all very well be part of No Man's Land.

Well, the use of the terms, "LA-land," and "Marijuana Coast" pretty much tells you it is a joke.

Breaking down California into regions involves a lot of geographic and economic knowledge. The average person breaks down regions into what they think are areas with similar characteristics.

Probably the best maps I've seen that break down regions somewhat accurately are the following:

KC6ZLV, uh if you were addressing me I was just placating it further. Perhaps an "LOL" or "LMAO" would help indicate that, though I just found it amusing ergo no internet slang. :\ <----- see, i cans too.
