Pronunciations for the Five Nations – Keith

Keith answers the following question:

Could we get a walkthrough on how to pronounce each of the Five Nations? Karrnath seems pretty straightforward, but I’ve heard Cyre half a dozen ways (I’m partial to “sigh-err” myself) and Breland seems to have an emphasis problem (is it BREE-land or Brehl-und?)
