DescriptionUnited Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
HRM Elizabeth II, Queen

The United Kingdom is a Western European nation and member of the European Union. It consists of England, Wales and Scotland, which were unified in 1707. The United Kingdom is a parliamentary democratic government with a traditional monarchy, currently led by the House of Windsor. Wales and Scotland have devolved parliaments of their own with autonomy of governance.

Parliamentary Election results can be found in the 'parliament' containers in each Region.

The United Kingdom also rules dependencies which include: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, Pitcairn, Saint Helena and Turks and Caicos Islands. Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man are autonomous and have a special relation with the British monarch, not with the United Kingdom. The dependencies of the British Indian Ocean Territory and the South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands have no constant inhabitation.

The seat of governance is in London, England. Its currency is the British Pound Sterling (GBP). It currently is debating the abolition of the British Pound in favor of the European Union currency. The kingdom celebrates the second Saturday of June as a national holiday in commemoration of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday.

Nationa Flag Description:
The Union flag, also called the Union Jack, is a combination of the crosses of patron saints of England (St. George's cross, red cross on a white field), Scotland (St. Andrew's cross, white saltire on a blue field) and Ireland (St. Patrick's cross, red satire on a white field).
