It is well known that many {{MisanthropeSupreme}}s and {{CrazySurvivalist}}s gravitate towards [[CaptainObvious less populated areas because there are fewer people to bother them]], although this is more of a Western trope than Eastern. Similarly, some famous serial killers have chosen to make their homes in rural areas because there are fewer witnesses.
