A slang name for the town of Oroville, CA; Often used by the more fortunate residents when describing the less than desirable aspects of the area: high unemployment, considerable lower-middle class population, conservative politics, scarcity of culture, abundance of roadside fast food strips, etc. Historically, Oroville has roots linking it to California's Gold Rush era. Its name is coined from the Spanish word for gold ("oro") and a truncated, slang diminutive for village (-ville), thus inspiring its local promotional tagline, "The City of Gold."
