The inland empire (inland southern california), or "IE" as locals call it, spans riverside and san bernardino counties, and parts of LA and SD counties. This is the region of California that any travel agencies or colleges just don't want the rest of the world to know about. The culture there condones and encourages racism, sexism, and every kind of bigotry. Education is not viewed as something to expand knowledge, but rather to get money to buy another raised up truck. If you have ever watched "Idiocracy" by Mike Judge, this region would strike home in a frighteningly accurate way. People there are just as belligerent as they are stupid and unwelcoming to new people and ideas. Also, this region is home to "bros" and "bro hos". Looking up those as well will give you a much better idea about the IE too. All in all, living here, you'll get every drawback of big city living, but none of the advantages. If you live there, for the love of God, GET OUT.
"Man, I'm tired of driving through the Inland Empire surrounded by SUV's covered in 'not of this world' and 'real men love jesus' and ' W 04' stickers that keep cutting me off or won't let me change lanes. Oh, and I could do without the smog and 110 degree heat in the summer."

Acually a very nice place Ive lived here all my life,It is far enough from La that you dont have all the congestion,and is also closest place to all the ski resorts,the three highest mountains in southern california are all in the IE.Its also the closest to the desert (techniqually palm springs is in the IE)and is only an hour a way from the beach and LA and its the closest to the river and Las Vegas.The reason IT is not as devoloped in some places is because alot of the people here like the small town feel to alot of the cities here.Also mostly only San bernardino has some bad parts in it the rest of the IE like Yucaipa,Redlands,Oak glen,East highland,cherry valley,Loma Linda,Grand Terrace,Beumont have very low crime rates (check the stats).Yeah alot of the kids drive lifted trucks and ride dirtbikes,but alot of those kids work and buy there own vehicles,unlike orange county where every kid has a lowered 2 door lexus or bmw with a loud ass annoying exuast that there parents buy for them.And since they drive those cars they all think there jeff gordon and peel out every corner and race any other car with just as annoying weak little exuast,so you cant say shit about someone in a truck driving worse.I only know because I stay out here in the OC a few days a week to visit some family.Alot of the suburbs in the Inland Empire have areas that are as nice as the nicest places in Orange county easily but most people never see those parts because they only drive through the IE on the freeway,The IE also has two of the best hospitals in the country Loma Linda University and ST.Bernadine.
The Inland Empire is the center of everything in southern california.

The IE is the closest region to all major things in southern california

The ghetto of Southern California. Famous for meth labs, bros and bro hoes raised trucks, and miles of dirt yards, rabid dogs, chain-link fences, and El Caminos on cinder blocks. The further you go down the 101, the worse it gets.
"Dude, I met this bro ho from the Inland Empire the other day. She was such a skank."

"Never go to the Inland Empire. Unless you want to get shot."

A very diverse region which covers part of L.A county all the way to the San Bernardino County. Cities include Riverside, San bernardino, Rialto, Colton, Parts of L.A , Fontana, etc.
The Inland Empire is fun. I personally live here and enjoy it. There is everything here from rich white people to Ghetto people. The ghetto people are mostly in San Bernardino , Rialto.The hogher clas live in cities such as Redlands, Higland(westpart,the east side of higland is ghetto)and parts of riverside and Colton. People like to party and smoke weed.
I'm from the Inland Empire (909).

Attention LA and OC: Avoid the IE. This is no place for a worldly sophisticate such as yourself. You do not want to spend your weekends clogging our freeways with your exodus back to your rich white friends and Antarctic/Borneoan fusion cuisine. Not that the IE isn't entirely white - of course it is! People of other ethnicities don't move here to escape perceived racism and economic segregation in LA. That's not something that resulted in a major news story or anything like folk is as lilypure as Ol' Alabammy. You can't find decent Mexican food here because Mexican immigrants and their descendants don't live here. Well, they do sometimes manage to sneak around our rabid dog patrols, but they aren't located in convenient enclaves where the nouveau riche descendants of Okies can slum it and brag about their courageous cultural enrichment in the barrio. In the IE, those people aren't just your ordinary neighbors...nope, because it's nothing but toothless peckerwoods around here. And boy, does it get HOT! Summer is hot, which is like totally weird and you can't be expected to suffer discomfort and where are you supposed to yogasurf?? And your friends can't call you in Riverslime because they keep dialing '909' and the call won't go through for some reason. So just turn your Land Rover around and keep spewing your pollutants in your own overpopulated backyard...all of your filth eventually gets blown here anyway.
"The Inland Empire housing market is rebounding, so slumlord leeches from LA and OC should look elsewhere in their quest to keep up with the Kardashians."
