Most people in the country where I live, farm! I couldn't tell you what all people in the actual town do. There are many jobs.

You can pretty much get what you need in the town of my area. I live on the country side, and we have a little grocery store. But if you need much more you will need to go to town. That's fine, we also have a lot of little mom-and-pop shops downtown Madison. That is were the tourists attract.
City area is fine, county areas take some time but they get here.
