It that country as in "woods & farmland", or as in "state", or both?

Depending on the context, gwlad can be used for both:

  • Dw i'n byw yn y wlad - I live in the country(side)
  • Gwlad yw Cymru - Wales is a country

OK, thanks. I suppose I've come across specialised cases such as "Pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad" as quoted above, "Gwlad y iar" (Iceland), and the Welsh govt farming publication "Gwlad".
