Devolved country within the United Kingdom of which no one outside the U.K has ever heard of.
Invaded, conquered & then promptly forgotten about by the English around 700 years ago the Welsh maintain a strong and very one sided rivalry with the their Anglo-Saxon neighbours. The English, to busy maintaining their rivalry with the French take very little notice of this.
Like many countries with a relatively small population and large agricultural base( i.e New Zealand, Australia, Scotland) the people of Wales are the targets, and original victims, of the epithet 'sheep shagger'.
Wales seems to produce an above average output of very attrative ladies (Catherine Zeta Jones,Charlotte Church, inumerable Big Brother contestants) which has been specualted to be the product of either a healthy rural diet, good clean valley air or that they simply evolved this way as the only means of tempting welsh men away from their sheep.
Wales allegedly has it's own language but that fact that it sounds like a horse coughing up phlegm and and all the words contain more vowels than constantants have led many to beleive they're simply taking the piss.
Main exports: Sheep, coal, socalism, Big Brother contestants, pop bands, rugby.
Q. Excuse me, are you English?
