General Information on the United Kingdom
(source: www.nationmaster.com)

Summary:
United Kingdom is a country in Western Europe and member of the European Union. The main religion is christianity. The main language is English. England-Wales and Scotland merged into the United Kingdom in 1707. The country is a parliamentary democratic monarchy. Wales and Scotland are devolving into autonomy. Northern Ireland has a special status with influence of Ireland. Some of the dependencies, Guernsey, Jersey, Man are autonomous and have a special relation with the British queen, not with the Kingdom. The other dependencies, Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, Pitcairn, Saint Helena and Turks and Caicos Islands have a large degree of autonomy. The dependencies of the British Indian Ocean Territory and the South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands have no constant inhabitation.

Background:
Great Britain, the dominant industrial and maritime power of the 19th century, played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two World Wars. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation. As one of five permanent members of the UN Security Council, a founding member of NATO, and of the Commonwealth, the UK pursues a global approach to foreign policy; it currently is weighing the degree of its integration with continental Europe. A member of the EU, it chose to remain outside the European Monetary Union for the time being. Constitutional reform is also a significant issue in the UK. The Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Northern Ireland Assembly were established in 1999.
