About The United Kingdom
The United Kingdom, sometimes (erroneously) called Great Britain or even just England is actually made up of four countries: England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Together, they have a population of around 66 million. The influence of Great Britain has made a worldwide impact, with the British Empire being the largest of all time. While the vast majority of former colonies have since gained independence, there are still a number of overseas territories that continue to be governed by the UK. The United Kingdom today is known for its historic castles, its contribution to modern rock music, its tea culture, and more.
