** Australia also has the ''Deep North''. The term is sometimes used for Queensland, which actually has a history of plantations (sugarcane rather than cotton) staffed by labourers some of whom were forcibly abducted from across the sea (the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Sea_Islander South Sea Islanders]]), as well as the second most rural population of any Australian state. In this sense, it is somewhat similar to Alabama. Its education system has been described as [[http://www.abc.net.au/religion/articles/2012/10/22/3615647.htm "the least secular in the country".]] Pauline Hanson, a politician whose short career was based on campaigning on such issues as the 'danger' Australia would be 'swamped by Asians', was more popular in Queensland than anywhere else. For these reasons and others, Queensland is often stereotyped as redneck.

And during the 1970s and 1980s, Queensland was ruled with an iron fist by state premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, who eventually stepped down in the wake of a massive corruption scandal. For these reasons and others, Queensland is often stereotyped as redneck.

* Britain's favourite black American, Reginald D Hunter, was sent back to his homeland by the BBC to present a series making sense of the Deep South states for British viewers. Reginald, from Georgia, accomplished this with style and insight in ''Reginald D. Hunter's Songs of the South''.

The highest figure of authority down there is the reverend of the local evangelical congregation (usually either Baptist or Pentecostal), leading to the zone being often called the "Bible belt"; And unlike the rest of the country, the MoralGuardians and the CulturePolice are ''actually'' supported and respected. So ''don't'' complain about the military, ''don't'' admit that you think ''QueerAsFolk'' was groundbreaking, ''don't'' try to explain how [[UsefulNotes/NeoPaganism Paganism]] has nothing to do with devil worship, and ''don't'' go out to the secluded farm house when your car breaks down in the rain... Unless the [[SacredHospitality Southern Hospitality]] is being played up, that is.

* An episode of ''Series/CriminalMinds'' ZigZagged this. The episode centred on a feud between two stereotypical West Virginia hillbilly clans, who shot at federal agents and insisted on referring to JJ as "Mrs" rather than "Agent Jureau". The BAU come to the conclusoon that the two are making crystal meth and the rivalry has spiralled into a drug war. Subverted when it turned out they were both making clean, efficient, bio-fuels. Then it went right back to playing it straight when [[spoiler:the matriarch of one clan and the patriarch of the other are revealed to be brother and sister, and the VillainOfTheWeek is their inbred son who was raised in the backwoods by a CrazySurvivalist]].
