It's a term used by blog commenters in the U.S. to mock their fellow Americans, particularly Southern conservatives with limited information. http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/murica. (End of pedantic footnote)

"Southern conservatives with limited information." That's the most politically correct expression for rednecks I've ever seen. Many rural southerners who never did, now say 'Murica instead of America with pride, especially my relatives in the military. ( It's not pronounced in the Hispanic way, but rather Mur'-ic-uh.)

Maybe just "Llobregat" for the "L'Hospitalet de Llobregat"

No way... "Llobregat" is the name of the river that runs through not only l'Hospitalet, but many more cities called "XXXXXX de Llobregat". So in no way "Llobregat" can be enough to identify l'Hospitalet. No one ever calls it "Llobregat".

Are you serious? They were joking- their name is even "yankee"! "murica" is short for "america". It's a pretty well known joke, usually used in the context of the dystopian level of patriotism that america is known for

Llobregat is the river that goes through L'Hospitalet and it sounds weird because L'Hospitalet is written in Catalan. So is like saying London of Thames- L'Hospitalet de Llobregat
