47. "Exurbia"
Fabulous term! Sounds like they're living in exile, which they are, in a way.

Or how about ber-suburbia? That seems fitting to me because they built a McMansion out there. I lived in exurbia in Western Mass, but that was because I couldn't afford to live in the city where I worked. I see that a lot in the mountains out here, especially. The service workers at the resort towns (Vail, Aspen) live in mobil homes in the middle of nowhere because they can't afford to live in Vail. Now those are the people truly hurtin' with these gas prices. You only make $5-6/hr, but you're paying over $4/gal and you sure as hell can't afford a Prius. :(
