20. Yes! real rural!
I live in a country "village" of maybe 2000 people, within walking distance of a small grocery, a few shops, restaurants, and the post office. The population of the entire county is only 65,000. My commute is usually across the house, and I try to have three "no drive" days each week. My "farm" is only 1/4 acre, which is a size I can maintain myself. The raised beds with drip irrigation have various vegetables, and I have planted fruit trees instead of shade trees. There is no lawn.

Some of us have chosen the simple life.
