More generally, the term "flatlander" is sometimes used to apply generally to those viewed as "outsiders" throughout the mountainous Appalachian region of the northeastern United States. In practice it is more frequently used in good-natured contempt rather than in actual hostility (though its negative connotations certainly do appear from time to time); the borough of Mansfield, Pennsylvania contains an eatery called "Frankie Flatlander's Cafe," which does brisk business despite the proprietor's joking self-advertisement as a non-native.
