The Island of Great Britain

Great Britain (is not) recognized as a separate country in modern times, but rather that term politically describes the combination of England, Scotland, and Wales.

"Great Britain" is still used by some to mean the country of the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland." However, and more correctly, Great Britain is today simply the largest island within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
