Several suburban neighborhoods outside of Baton Rouge, La incorporated in 2005 and named the new town Central City. Now that is one of the most boring names ever. It sounds like a soap opera or comic book town.

So you live in a village? I believe that's the only thing smaller than a town in Illinois.
