This is Hope, Indiana, located off of Indiana 9, a major north south highway in the state serving many small towns like Hope, Shelbyville, Greenfield, and then serves bigger cities like Anderson, and Marion further north. In real life, Hope has around 2,100 people. Hope has historically prided itself in not investing in fast food restaurants, and in the 1960's or 70's, Hope was sponsored in an Arby's commercial sense Arby's was the only chain restaurant in the town. Now a days, Subway is the only one. My Sim City version of Hope has around 12,000 people as just about every sim commutes to the farms. Schaeffer Lake is on the south east side of Hope, (not in the picture) and is a popular recreation area.
