A rugged, mountainous landmass joined to western england with high levels of rainfall all year round. Summer is very short and temperatures rarely reach over 66 degrees F. Winters are harsh and many welsh people exhibit vulgar lesions and cracked skin during this season. It is the time when welsh women are most ready to mate.

Over centuries of industrialisation, and and a lack of ambition/education for its inhabitants; Wales has become a sort of no go area for investment and development. Once famous for coal mining, slate, granite etc practically all of those industries no longer exist, only remains of excavation and mining give a clue to its industrial past... oh and the huge holes dug into the landscape, fetid and rotten, the rust of a thousand moons etc.

The general populace are often very simple in their behavioural and thought patterns and an attitude of intolerance, bitterness and violence are the most common character traits of the typical "welshman". The welsh are particularly bitter toward the english and envy any form of affluence or snobbery. Indeed wages in Wales are much lower than most other parts of great britain and the number of unskilled workers or those claiming some form of benefit are also higher than other parts of britain on average.

In summary, do not visit the towns/cities. In particular cardiff, newport, swansea, llanelli.

The only place really of any interest to those with a liking of scenery and tranquility is west wales, where few council estates exist and the population is mostly well off english retiree's.

Wales in summary; a graveyard of ambition, where people's daily routine consists of earning minimum wage, then spending it on the weekend on cheap alcohol and distasteful female/woolen company. For the unemployes or over 40's days are spent in the local pub then on some low quality turkish food and then possibly beating someone up in the evening.
"I've heard Wales is a dreadful neanderthal infested pit, roasted for a thousand years in rotting pig vomit and then baked in the deserts of egypt for a million millenia then submerged under terrential rain for the remainder of eternity..."

A place of ancient Celtic culture that was flourishing long before the English even existed. Much of the culture is long lost but there is wealth of mystery, richness, beauty and fame connected to Wales that most people have no idea about.
To look beyond the sheep jokes, daffodils and rugby and it is important to recognise it was one of the first literary cultures on Earth. Celtic way of life was overflowing with poetry and great legends some little known and some world famous and more often than not, very wrongly, attributed these days to England.
They lived, on the whole peacefully, believing in nature, song, literature, dance... basically life just being fun. It was actually one of the first nations where women were treated in many ways equally to men! They even lived at peace with the Romans after the Roman invasion into Britain developing a sophisticated, ahead of its time nation!
Unfortunately the English (at that point Normans, Germans, French) i.e. the Anglo Saxons came to Britain and ruined most of it.

Wales has so much to be remembered for, namely some of the greatest legends, such as that of King Arthur and his round table which yes, was Celtic (WELSH) legend - though it is thought much of the legends are based on true figures. Though nowadays people tend to think King Arthur was English when what he did was in fact fight the Anglo-Saxons, he was in fact half-Celtic, half Roman.
Wales has many other great stories, A welsh Indian tribe existed in America long before Columbus ever arrived, thus proving that the Welsh were in fact the first to sail to America. In fact on the American declaration of independance 13 of the 17 signatures are signed by Welsh men, and America was very nearly going to be a Welsh speaking country!
A land with stories of great people, Owain Glynd, Aneurin Bevan, Richard Burton, Dylan Thomas, David lloyd George, JPR Williams!, Roald Dahl... the list is endless...Many great singers, actors, artists and writers have come from the small country of Wales (can't forget Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Anthony Hopkins for modern legends, even Kylie who is half Welsh!)
Not to forget it is a country of great beauty, much of the countryside breathtaking but unseen by many.
It is a nation, of what i have seen, (and that is much!), of polite, kind, talented people. This is of course a generalisation but i do not know how Cardiff can be accused of being violent fans when England are world-renowned for the behaviour of their football fans!!
There is a national Eisteddfod each year bringing together talent from all over Wales, yet the contest is not publicised or known to many outside Wales... a great shame.
I could go on and on, Wales is far too over stereotyped and it is by people that have no idea about the truth at the core of this remarkable country.
WALES rules so do not knock it until you have been there (preferably further than the South East) and KNOW about its history!

We gave you coal during the age of Steam.
We give you lamb (Which we thoughtfully leave unmolested, contrary to popular but increasingly tired belief)
We created the legend of King Arthur, only for you to take it and pass it off as your own creation.
We were living here and speaking our language when you were still somewhere in Scandinavia.
We were one of the first people to put poetry and music together.

So please, if you're going to disrespect us, do it properly.

Surely the country that gave the World the likes of Shakespeare, can muster up a more scathing attack than ones involving common farmyard animals?

The very fact that the Welsh are, for the most part, respected in other countries where the English are not - In my mind speaks volumes.

a country next to england that often gets forgotten.
and when it is remembered people living there are called 'sheepshaggers'.
just thought i remind people that we do have our own language. and wales is very different england.
national anthem of wales

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Tros ryddid gollasant eu gwaed.

Gwlad, Gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra môr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Country to the west of England that English people often forget exists.
Wales rhymes with whales.

A country with some of the best pubs in the World. Don't pick a fight in Wales because they will knock your teeth out.
Wales rocks.
No one shags sheep and not everyone is called Gwenyth.
Visit Wales!
