In Ireland, there are legally defined areas, collectively "The
Gaeltacht", where Irish is more common. There are signs when you
enter, tax breaks, and the place name signs will all be in Irish (rather
than Irish + English). I don't think we have them mapped yet, and if
we did, we could use this format.
*But* there isn't any administrative boundaries that define them. They
are small and inside other admin boundaries. They aren't "aboriginal
areas", or "protected areas".
So if you're implementing this, I suggest looking at more than just
enclosing boundary=administrative area(s).
 Which can cause problems for tourist towns which use the English
