United Kingdom

The United Kingdom of Great Britain, the UK, includes the island of Great Britain, Northern Ireland, and a number of smaller islands. The island of Great Britain is comprised of England, Wales, and Scotland. The UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea in the east, the English Channel in the south, and the Irish Sea in the west.

The UK has 14 British Overseas Territories (the British Virgin islands, the Falklands, and the like), remnants of the British Empire. At its height in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the empire encompassed almost a quarter of the world's landmass. Indeed, it was the largest empire in history.
