The city of Sugarland, Texas has about 80,000 people living in it. It is located in Fort Bend County and is a suburb of Houston. The city has received numerous high rankings in 'best place to live' lists by various publications. Sugarland is also one of the wealthiest cities in America (and thus, the world). Many residents work in Oil and commute to Houston. Sugarland would seem familiar to people living in Plano or Allen, Texas, Scottsdale or Glendale, Arizona, Edmond, Oklahoma or Henderson, Nevada. It is a typical wealthy--albeit hot--sunbelt suburb. I lived in Sugarland for a while as a kid and remembered it being quite, diverse (especially a lot of Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern people) and somewhat ... boring. But overall it was a nice place. Sunbelt suburbs have always interested me as they are very similar across the Southwest and California.
