Most live in Wales, UK. with a small diaspora in Patagonia, Argentina an other countries.

What are their lives like?
The lives of the welsh are generally more impoverished than those of their English cousins. However, strong national identity prevents them slipping into destitution.

What are their beliefs?
Once a proud Evangelical nation, they have in recent times lost their faith to the wave of commercialism that has over taken many "Western" countries.
