These are people who were not born in California but instead move there and try to pass themselves off as natives. They are easily spotted by their weird hemp jewelry, Ugg boots in winter, and use of the term "Cali". Transplants lack wry Californian wit evident in true natives, who mock them in hushed tones.
Everyone who lives in California is super wealthy. Californians have all met tons of movie stars. Californians have never seen snow (however, many Californians believe that 56 degrees Fahrenheit is "cold").
