Llamedos is a hilly and permanently rainy country on the main continent. It is the home of druidism and druidical music and lots and lots of cold, exceptionally wet rain (It even has rain mines). It is also home to some dwarf clans, who mine coal in it's hills. Famous inhabitants include: Rhys Rhysson, who would become Low King of the dwarfs Imp y Celyn, a.k.a. Buddy, lead singer and guitarist of The Band With Rocks In, during the Music With Rocks In fever in Ankh-Morpork (see Soul Music), and Sgt. Dai Dickins, a stalwart in the Glorious Revolution (see Night Watch.) Evangelist and explorer Llamedos Jones, reputed to have discovered the Brown Islands, was also a native. The main town would appear to be Pant-y-Girdl.
The odd tendency of local placenames to spell strange things backwards in Morporkian does not arise from any jocular attitude on the part of the Llamedosians. They are known as a rather dour and humorless group.
The Prince of Llamedos is, historically, the courtesy title given to the eldest son and heir to the throne of Ankh-Morpork and may derive from a time when Llamedos was part of the Ankhian Empire. The current (undeclared) Prince is Carrot Ironfoundersson. It nominally at least provides one Army regiment: the 35th Llamedosian Foot. Their last stand at Lawke's Drain is a battle honour the nation remains quietly proud of.
According to Raising Steam, Llamedos, and Pant-y-Girdl, are on the coast of the Rim Ocean. however, the The Discworld Mapp places the country well inland: the only way Llamedos could have a coast and a seaport is if Hergen, otherwise in the way, is moved up or down the coast a bit. Or Hergen is a western province of Llamedos.
Llamedos and its inhabitants closely resemble Wales and the Welsh.
