Dusleida [dʉs'li:da] is an Arithide term, referring to inhabitants of an area, such as a neighbourhood, a province, a country or a whole continent, who were born outside it and do not, by birth and heritage, share the common culture of the area, even though they may be fully assimilated. This definition means that, for example, an ethnic Areth who was born and raised in Dethria and is completely alien to his native culture is still considered dusleida in Dethria, but no longer once he returns to Arithia.

The phrase may be seen as a close equivalent of the Chinese wàishěngrén (外省人), though with a slightly weaker exclusive connotation.
