Euskara is the language, the parts where it's spoken are called Euskal Herria (The current Euskal Herria is smaller than the nationalist Euskal Herria*, and the maximun Euskal Herria is bigger than the nationalist Euskal Herria. That's why I'm not that fond lately of th nationalist version.) *When they talk about independence they normally refer to Navarre, Alava, Vizcaya and San Sebastián plus a bit in what it's now France that used to be Navarre.

The problem is that Spain was never "well organized" in parts like the UK seems to be to me as a foreigner. When I look at them, I see Scotland (and it's dfferent parts), Wales, England (Northen and Southern) and even Cornwall is you don't see it as England. Maybe one could argue about details about what criteria exactly constitute these parts and what should be their correct extension.
Spanish history is more confusing. The only region well delimited seems to be Portugal. Probably Aragon (although none of the three local languages are official and only one is spoken), Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands. My guess is that the problem comes from making our particular England, Castile, lose it's identity. Calling the language "Spanish" (imagine calling English "British", the problem being that it catched on), breaking it's territory in every way possible, mixing it up with other territories (Leon), and in general a socioeconomic delay for quite a while except in the Basque zone and Catalonia. It doesn't help that the languages other than Castilian and Portuguese have had their fair share of problems, and that the population at large is a bit at a loss with their own cultures and history.
