I live in a small town in central texas - very frugal! When we made 90K a year we were the envy of our friends but I felt poor cause I moved from Buffalo NY where 90k a year is just above food stamp level it seemed!
But here we got a 1700 sq foot house for 108K - it would have cost two or three times that in NY! gas is cheaper, food is chaper, garage sales all year long and pecan trees that drop more nuts than we can eat every year!
Now that I am self employed I pay myself half that and we get by just fine. I will give myself a raise when the business is established enough to support it.
But to answer your question (cause I think I veered off course) the median of about 35K is riches down here!

In my area of VA the median household income is $32,000. I would consider good money in this area to be around $75,000.
