# An overgrown Little Italy. Everybody seems to know somebody who knows somebody who is "[[TheMafia connected]]", be they a mechanic in Hoboken or a soccer mom in Parsippany. [[SleazyPolitician The politicians]] rival Third World dictators in brazen corruption. All the white people are Italian (and as of the 2010s they'll be white in name only, as they'll be slathered in fake-tan body paint), and they all know what the hottest clubs are. The men have blowouts, dress in either Armani Exchange clothing or muscle shirts, do vast quantities of steroids, drive [[CoolCar '80s IROC-Z Camaros or entry-level BMWs]], and are insanely misogynistic and homophobic. The women, known as "Jersey Girls," are all {{Hard Drinking Party Girl}}s, still have EightiesHair decades after it went out of style, wear ten pounds of makeup, and are always [[{{Stripperiffic}} dressed like they're headed to the club]]. The only radio station is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WKTU WKTU]], and they are always playing Music/LadyGaga or Cascada remixes. If a techno-sounding beat starts playing, the natural response is to start pumping one's fist in the air. And everyone speaks with an obnoxious, nasally, highly {{Flanderized}} [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents Italian-American/New York accent]].[[note]]Despite popular perceptions, New Jersey doesn't have the largest proportion or absolute numbers of Italian-Americans of all the American states; that honour goes to Rhode Island and New York respectively, according to the 2010 Census.[[/note]]
==> That's kinda nonsense, with all due respect. In terms of acting like hotshots, plenty of WASPs, Jews, Danes, Spaniards act like that in Jersey, moreso than Italians. That accent, by the way, isn't Italian.

* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', Steve uses Paramus as a fake hometown during one of his failed attempts to enlist in the army. After Bucky chastises him for illegally lying on his enlistment form, he adds "And seriously, Jersey?".

In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' it is revealed that Steve actually was sent to New Jersey for his Army basic training before the super soldier serum was administered. He regards it almost as the place where he was born, telling Natasha Romanoff that he was "made" there.

* In late 2011 a New Jersey resident created a demographic map of the state (currently at the top of this page). Thanks to Facebook and Twitter it immediately went viral and made the local papers. A couple of politicians were unhappy with the portrayal, but the vast majority of residents found it to be hilarious and pretty much dead-on, as seen [[http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/12/nj_man_puts_rednecks_hippies_a.html/ here]]
