Bryniau Gwyrdd (often abreviated as 'Bry-gwy) is a territory located in the Empire of Aenopia comprising of a house and a garden.

Etymology

The name Bryniau Gwyrdd means 'Green Hills' in Welsh referring to the local Shropshire Hills Area of Natural Beauty located in the United Kingdom within a close proximity to Bryniau Gwyrdd. Bryniau Gwyrdd is informally known as 'Bry-gwy' due to its complicated and often difficult to pronounce name, and is often referred as such as an alternative.

"Gwyrddi" is the official demonym used to describe something belonging to or originating from Bryniau Gwyrdd, this is also the demonym for an individual from Bryniau Gwyrdd. Technically, "Bryniau Gwyrdd" can refer to the entire territory, or to the infrastructure of the area; there is a small distinction between the subjects.

Geography

Bryniau Gwyrdd is mostly flat and features a large grassy field at the southern end of the territory. About 30% of the territory is taken up by the city of New Tenby whilst the northern side features a drive. Unlike other Aenopian territories, Bryniau Gwyrdd does not feature a large forested area, however features a small cluster of trees on the eastern side.

Bryniau formerly featured a small pond at the extreme south of the territory, however this has since disappeared in the past decade. The original basin still remains however and is referred to as the 'Bry-Gwy Trench'.

Culture

Aenopian culture primarily follows the basic principles of the Western culture due to its geographical location in the world and subsequently, its population. Some Christian holidays which have become embedded into Western society (Christmas, Easter, etc.) are recognised and celebrated by the population as National Holidays. Bryniau Gwyrdd also adheres to these principles as a territory of Aenopia.

Languages

English is the most commonly spoken language in Aenopia and the only language used on a daily basis for communication; it is the only language used for government and diplomatic business, although Welsh is rarely used for more ceremonial occasions and is featured as a secondary language on numerous Aenopian documents and treaties. Aenopia also ceremoniously recognises French and Welsh as a national language, with the latter being recognised as a primary language of the territory of Brynaiu Gwyrdd. Welsh has been adopted as the official symbolic language of Bryniau Gwyrdd and can be found in signs around the territory, primarily due to its close proximity to the Welsh border.
