More information about Final Jeopardy:

The real Arcadia is in southwestern Greece, just under 100 miles from Athens. Its mountainous areas and small population led to the province’s name being used in poetry to describe a utopian vision of an unspoiled wilderness area. In 21st century popular culture, it appeared in the title of the television series “Joan of Arcadia”, when a fictional Arcadia, Maryland was created.
