Santa Monica, CA
Teams: Zenit, Fulham
I like Balktika because of geography and I have visited Kaliningrad.
I think Dima speaks for everyone in wanting those teams gone because they are fake teams with no fans. They were created with corruption, have no fan base. Heck, Saturn isn't even in a city of more than 15,000. It is funded by Mafia in a corrupt town outside of Moscow, thats why its called Saturn Moscow Region. Khimki was just founded so someone (forgot who) could get RPL head coaching experience. It doesn't really deserve to be a team, but Khimki does have the best small team stadium in the RPL.
Alania and Anzhi both have passionate fan bases, and fill their stadium, or at least would in the RPL. The south seems to have more avid fans for smaller teams I think.... Amkar, KS, most of the Moscow teams, etc have empty stadiums and Rostov Kuban this year's additions seem to have better game atmospheres and fans than many of the RPL mainstays.
