They’re those corners of the world that you just can’t get out of your mind. Places so special, or just plain weird, that they take on their own personalities. National Geographic scoured the United States to include just such places in its new Zip USA series.

First up is a little spot in Texas called Mentone. With no drinking water and a population of 15, it’s just short of a ghost town. But a desert full of oil ranks those folks among the highest per capita income earners in the country. Mentone lacks the finer things in life, like a grocery store or movie theater, but it has got its own zip code.

Other zips in the works range from the pop-inspired to the stuff of legends. Nominate your own choice and tell us why it’s special. We are looking at the best nominations for coverage in the magazine. And since the series is going global, international postal codes are eligible, too.

After nominating your own special corner of the world, check out our first pick—a little place in Texas called Mentone.
