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!

A place this is often mistaken for another part of England, but is actually a country just like England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. They all make up The UK. The Welsh accent can be adorable, and if you're ever going to visit Wales (which you should) then it wouldn't harm you to learn the word 'hello' -Bore da or 'Thanks' -Diolch. It isn't vital to learn welsh before you go to Wales as many people don't speak it. Mistaking a Welsh person for an English person is like mistaking a Canadian for an American or a New Zealander for an Australian, WE GET IT ALL THE TIME, but we are used to it. The majority of Welsh people are kind hearted and talkative. While the minority are big brother wannabes :(. Welsh is compulsory in all Welsh school (I'm learning it) and Welsh is the oldest language in Europe :). We would love to have a Hetalia character.

I love being Welsh XD
Random Tourist: "Bore da. How are Welsh people so kind?"
Welsh Person "Bore da (inward jump for joy at use of Welsh). We try our best!"

Ignorant person: "You're English, I hate the English."
Me: "Actually, I'm Welsh, I come from Wales."
Ignorant Person: "Sheepshager!"

Me: *shoves already typed list of reasons why welsh people aren't sheep shagers* AND WE'RE KING OF THE SIX NATIONS TOO!

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?

A. Fuck off boyo, I'm from Wales.

The Welsh language has good swear words. Actually, those are the only Welsh words I know.

Ydy hi'n wir fod Seimon yn bwchio Dafydd?

Simon sure is shafting David.

Welsh people sing well too. I mean, you know that chick whose... young.. and she was in that movie with the singing? she was Welsh, or played a Welsh person. Her father was a drunk rock star.
Timmy: Do you like Dragons?
Sam: Why, yes I do, Timmy.
Timmy: The Welsh flag has a dragon on it, bitch!
Sam: Blow me.
