An old (but not ancient), diverse (mongrel) country in the British isles, which like everywhere else in the world has both a glorious history(industrialisation, first real democracy, first country to seperate church and state,ending atlantic slave trade, darwin,newton etc) and a shamefull history (the empire, suppresion of wales,scotland+ireland,starting the atlantic slave trade,not declaring war on hitler about 7 years earlier.)

and like everywhere else the population largley consists of relatively open minded friendly enough people trying to carry on with their lives and enjoy themselves, but gets let down by some narrowminded bastards i.e chavs who thankfully are seen by the majority for what they are i.e scum of the earth.

. english people drink ludicrous amounts of tea, which is fine as it can help (slightly) prevent various cancers forming
.the only english people who drink warm beer are alcoholics who go to "real ale festivals".
.english did indeed invent a lot of sports, and it's perfectly true that english teams rarely win, this is generally not due to crapness, but more to do with the modern english nation not caring too much about winning,we view taking part and enjoyement being what counts, this viewpoint is translated in the national teams performances.
.english people are slightly racist towards french people and vice versa, this is merely a neighbourly thing, when push comes to shove we love our european friends.
.the english monarchy are inbred,stupid+a drain on taxes, but on the other hand, all capitalist countries have a slight class system, we just give ours titles, also the royal family generate enourmous amounts of tourism+therefore money,only my gran watches the queens speech at christmas. so its win win
.english people dont think of all americans are fat,stupid,lazy etc, america is still seen as a great place to visit,and a source of some great music and ideas eg. jazz, blues, rock+roll, hip hop, the hippy peace movement, bill hicks; we merely worry that the far right christians (who we hate) seem to be gaining political power+control over the nation e.g. george w bush, the temporary banning of teaching darwinism in certain schools,the (generally) complacent tv media owned by business men with an agenda. etc etc.
.england is not plagued by chavs, and every western country+im assuming all countries, have a section of then allienated youth which frustrated with their social situation tend towards violance and drug addiction ALL countries have chavs of one description or another.
.england gave the world monty pythons flying circus and reddwarf.
.make no mistake england is not bush's biatch, blair is, we the english people do not agree with the illegal occupation of iraq+the obvious thieving of oil that is happening there.
.english people despise blair, but the other choices at previous elections have been sub standard untill now.
.many other people have posted increadibly rude and racist definitions about england, fuck you! you either never came here, went to a shitty area if you did, or are mentally disadvantaged, grow up.
.All in all a nice place so long as you don't mind the rain.

A member nation of the United Kingdom. It is part of an island nation in western Europe, which invented football (which we have mixed results in) Rugby (same again) and many other handy things.

Together with Scotish enlghtenment (mainly based in Edinburgh) Welsh raw materials, Irish manpower. The English played a huge part in turning Great Britain into the first truly industrialised nation.

It also (again with the aid of the other home nations) formed the largest empire the world had yet seen. Strangely the English attempts at Empire had been successful but not greatly so, while the Scots had failed in panama. When the two combined however things really took off (strange)

The English also proved themselves to be a strong fighting nation both on sea and land and contrary to popular myth were equal to the other home nation regiments. For some reason many seem to believe that a race of people that sailed across the North sea and took over much of the fertile land of Great Britain and then fought virtualy non stop with Europe, should be considered pansies.

The English are now a hugely mixed group, however as they consider and take pride in their mixed basterdised background (creating a better stronger gene pool) this has had no real negative consequences unless a group is clearly segregating themselves (hence the dislike of the muslim veil)

The English relationship with the rest of the U.K. has been tense for many years in the past due mainly to the constant wars between themselves with no clear outcome other than pointless arguements over things that happened in the middle ages.

The main cause for dislike now is not so much cultural differences (as there are none to speak of other than accents)it is more of a dislike based on news reports wanting to create hatred. Football and Rugby matches that are treated like wars (its only a sodding game)and a sense of calling yoursef different for the sake of wanting to be different. This has been fueled by a largely pointless and over nostalgic view of the past in many celtic countries which now believe they can improve themselves by dressing stupidly and speaking languages that are basically defunct. rather like the Italians reverting to Latin on a whim or the English learning Anglo Saxon.
England perform on average on their own. United with the other nations of Britain. THEY ROCK!

England is an alright country, depending on what part of England you're from it's a nice place to live. Many of Englands sterotypes are untrue or are untrue now for example bad teeth I've never met anyone in real life with black teeth and I've lived in England my whole life. I'm not saying England is the best country in the world because I don't think it is but i don't think it's as bad as most of these definitions are making out.
England is a fun place to live you know!!

England the greatest place on Earth

A decent place. No more, no less. England varies depending mostly on what city you stay in. Yes, we have a problem with immigration, chavs, an underachieving football team, but we're not full of tea drinkers, with awful teeth/food either.

As the author of #1 stated, we have an unhealthy relationship with the other nations in the U.K, due to things that happened centuries ago, and sports games, but none of us really took off until we combined. My wife is Welsh, and I love her with all my heart.

Simply put, we are just an alright country.
In England, you are sure to have both good and bad experiences.
