n.Gloss: a nickname, often derogatory, for Dearborn, Michigan, which has a large population of Muslims. Note: The “-stan” and “-istan” suffixes are often informally affixed to place names in the Anglophone world to indicate in a negative way that the place is somehow connected to or affiliated with Islam, Muslims, Arabs, or the Middle East. «Sharia is just around the corner. Dearbornistan is right in our midst. They want to kill us. It’s in the koran.» —“Re: Good Bye Europe” by Rocksand Usenet: cakewalk.coffeehouse Aug. 5, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
