Great Britain

Great Britain, nineteenth-century maritime power and industrial, has played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and literature and science. At the height of his power, the British empire rule the one-quarter of Earth's surface. In the first half of the twentieth century the power of Britain seriously eroded the two world wars. In the second half of the century colonial empire collapsed and the United Kingdom has undergone transformation into a prosperous, modern state. Currently the UK is considering to what extent to integrate with the mainland. The UK is a member of the European Union, but decided not to join the European Monetary Union. Important for the country's constitutional reform. In 1999 in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland regional parliamentary assemblies built with different permissions.
