A unit of measurement, eg, "an area the size of Wales". Interchangeable with other units like the Rhode Island, the Greenland and the Texas. Most commonly used in news broadcasts and radio shows. 'The Wales' is not to be confused with the country Wales (part of the UK), with which it has nothing in common.
A lump of ice the size of Wales has broked off Antarctica.
