Great Britain and Northern Ireland, also known as the UK, is an independent island country somewhere off the coast of Europe. It consists of four countries, and is completely surrounded by large bodies of water such as the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea, the English Channel, and the Irish Sea. One of the islands is also connected to France.
The UK is a democracy ruled over by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. She has domain over fourteen overseas territories, meaning it is the largest empire in history. The UK has the fifth or sixth largest and most successful economies in the world. However, it has suffered through two world wars, leading to a decline in success throughout the 20th century.
The UK is a lovely place to visit, with plentiful rainfall that makes the vegetation lush and green. It rarely sees sun or snow.
The United Kingdom is a strong country, with heavy influence in places such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa, and the United States of America.
