Imagine that you have only 8 million Americans in total, of which 4 million live in New Orleans metro, 1 million live in Charleston metro, and the rest live in smaller cities and in rural areas, while everyone has the same climate and everything's within a day's drive of each other.

In this context, do you think Charleston would have anywhere near the same appeal as it does now?
