In Quebec, there are many actuarial programs with a lot of students entering the market with 3-4 exams, and I feel actuaries are underpaid there in general...
Some of them should move to towns with fewer actuaries. The market has spoken.

I'm betting on Hamilton, Bermuda for this one - assuming the minimum is not really low.

In the town I live in, one of every 1700 residents is a working actuary.

Yep, got to put that defined minimum in there . . . .

She lives in a town with a population of 1700.

I would also vote for Hamilton, Bermuda. Where even the folks in customs know all about actuaries.

Just FYI, there is a life/health group of companies in Orlando and a re-insurer, as well.

Also, some consultants.

Why?

Des Moines wouldn't be bad. Good Pay, nice area, cheap cost of living? I don't see the basis to your argument.

Des Moines is a great place to live. A decent size urban area with a great small town feel. Just hold your nose when the wind blows from the east.

Disclaimer: My knowledge of Des Moines is now almost 15 years old. They may have shut down the rendering plant by now.
