Who knows?

Do you know about Cornish nationalism? British politics was my field in grad school (when I became a Badger), and it turns out, much to everyone's surprise, there's a serious but very small Cornish nationalist movement, about reviving the language and even trying to bring back the Stannery Parliament from the Middle Ages as a devolved assembly, like the Welsh Assembly and the Scottish Parliament, for the Southwest (Cornwall & Devon). The party is called Mebyon Kernow, which means about the same thing as Plaid Cymru does on the other side of the water.

Definitely worth keeping an eye on, as they scored 1.7% of the vote in Cornwall in the last British parliamentary election. 

All of which leads me to yet another Greyhawk question: Is Onnwall named after the fair land of (very few of) our ancestor's birth? I certainly treat it my game as being Cornish -- tin, pirates, etc.

The old Celtic areas of the UK still have some nationalistic movements in them indeed.

There were lots of Cornishmen in the lead mining area of southern Wisconsin, and that is indeed where the term "Badger State" came from.
There are no actual badgers here.

My grandmother told me how the miners would take their pasties into the mine for lunch, warming them under their arm...

Yes, Onwall was inspired by Cornwall, Land's End and all that good stuff 

Cheerio,
