A Great country that seems to have lost it's way. Those who knock our football team, dental service, abuse of our language etc...You're right. What you forget though, is that we have practically NO English players in our team,most of our dental and medical staff are from the East and before we had 24/7 access to foreign crap on telly, we all spoke nicely. Our National Health and Benefits systems are in melt-down because if you come here, we give you the same rights as us. What other country does that?! We go out of our way to "embrace" the world and allow tens of millions of people to come to OUR country. The only uneducated members of our country are either foreign imports or today's youth who spend their lives watching U.S talk-shows and listening to U.S influenced (c)rap music.
No one asks you to come here and we certainly don't want you to stay. We DON'T kill our own people, we DON'T enforce our will on others, we DON'T go to places we don't like. Finally, we don't all live for bloody football.

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.
england doesn't equal britain

A country that has invented more international sports than any other nation. The list includes golf, tennis, darts, boxing, football (soccer), rugby union, rugby league and cricket. Although Americans don't play the last three sports, pretty much everyone else in the world does.

Other sports invented by England include; bobsleighing (believe it or not!), badminton, bowls, canoeing, snooker, croquet, curling, rowing, skiing (amazingly), squash, table tennis, yachting, weight lifting, archery and horse racing.

Perhaps the only three main games played on a global scale that are missing from the list are chess (accredited to India), hockey/ice hockey (Ireland) and Poker...not invented by Americans, but by the French.

At time of writing, England is home to the most prestigious tennis tournament(Wimbledon), the second best test cricket team in the world, the Rugby Union World Cup winners, one of the favourites for Germany 2006 Football World Cup plus the wealthiest and arguably best Football league in the world.
American jock: "what the hell's 'soccer' anyway? I mean, like, who actually plays that?"
England football hooligan: "it's the most viewed sport in the world mate. The World cup gets over 900 million more viewers than the superbowl. Enuf said."

<noun> Geography;

The largest and most populous country in Great Britain, the largest island of an archapelago located 20 miles to the North-West of the European continent. England has borders with Scotland and Wales; Elsewhere, it is mainly bounded by the North sea and the English Channel.
It's capital city is London, which is also it's main economical and governmental heart. The government itself is known as a parliamentary democracy consisting of political parties whose members are elected into 'seats' in the House of Commons. Each member represents a constituency (usually a city or group of towns) and if elected is then known as an MP or Member of Parliament.
The Monarchy of England is symbolic and plays no powerful role in the political system, although they are the rulers of the State, and the Commonwealth by name.
London is also the capital city of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with it's members: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (in order of land mass).
Britain had the largest empire ever known, covering just under one third of the Earth's surface, on which "the sun never set."

==> The name 'England' derives from "Angle-Land" from the Anglo-Saxons who settled here in the 4th-8th centuries A.D. Which also explains foreign names for our country, e.g. "Angleterre" in French.

England is a quaint land surrounded by Scotland, Wales and Ireland (Northern and the Republic of), who make up the United Kingdom, or UK, as well as a few small Islands nobody cares about.
Except the Isle of Mann. People care about that because of the TT motorbike race.
Other than that, they have a history of being one of the most powerful countries in the world. The Monarchy of England is the most famous in the world, and it is that Monarchy which almost lead them, and the rest of the British Empire, to take over the world.

These days England models itself on America a lot. It's rather disgusting. Everyone also thinks of the English as either really cool, those would be Anglophiles, or someone to hate, predominantly Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
People from England do not all talk like Queen Elizabeth II or Sir Ian McKellen. Sadly, the Men are not all gay. Sadly, the Women are not all prudes. Sadly, we do not all refer to ourselves in the third person. Sadly, we are not all funny. And contrary to popular belief we do not try to quash Ireland's, Scotland's or Wales' culture. We are who we are.
"Say, you're from England aren't you?"
"Yes."
"Why don't you say one and crap?"
"... Because I'm not a posh twat?"

"I'm Scottish. I wear a kilt. Got a problem with that, English man?"
"Why, no, I haven't. Why would you ask me such a thing? I'm just someone who happens to be from England."

England is a country that is hated, and subject to being "slagged off" on a regular basis by countries such as Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We are NOT to be confused as Britain, that is also Wales and Scotland. A country full of proud inhabitants and a rich history. We invented Football and Rugby, the worlds two favourite sports. America developed their version of "Football," by mixing the two sports. We gave to the world; The Car, The TV, Mobile and various other world changing objects. We also hold some of the worlds greatest bands; Led Zepplin, Oasis, The Beetles, Arctic Monkeys and various others. Countries hate us for things that happened before they were born, or for things that 60+ million people had no control over, and we are quickly stereotyped as being "Stuck up."
"I hate the England."
"Why?"
"Because they invaded us centuries ago."

"English are all stuck up bastards."
