Here's a fun fact:

The English word "Wales" comes from Old English. Its original meaning was "foreigner". Funny considering the English were the actual "foreigners" on the British Isles.

I was there yesterday. Trying to cross the bridge, it was already blowing a hoolie. I drove from Wales to Torquay, the whole way in driving wind and rain, at some points I couldn't even see the road markings. Quite worrisome. I was concerned a policeman might see me weaving, as the wind buffetted the car and think I was drunk.

Wales is no more a country than Flanders or Ireland.

Thanks for making my point. Wales is an English "state" just like Delaware.

Its cute some people still think that.

  Get real; it was completely annexed in England centuries ago, and has not had an independent political, legal, or monetary system, or any system separate from England for more than 700 years. Its just another county in England, it pretty much always has been. The only thing setting it apart from any other English county being only delusions of grandeur - or in this case, delusions of adequacy.

 Funny, I thought Nevada and California each had their own independent political systems and the ability to govern themselves and their own internal affairs.
 Bet we can find a few ways that Wales differs from that model, can't we?

700 years in Europe is not very far back. There are houses older than that.

Its just another county in England, it pretty much always has been.

No, it is another country in Great Britain. England is also a country in Great Britain.

To follow the analogy, Nevada and California are both states in the USA. What you said was "Nevada is a state in California".

There is no King of England.  Hasn't been since 1707.
