Named after the Angles/Anglos at the time, which divided up the British Isle into Angle-land, Wessex, and a place for the natives. Neighbor to Wales and Scotland, and part of the United Kingdom. Once one of the greatest empires in the world, it still holds some clout. The capital is London, which is by far the worst place in it, being over crowded, about two degrees hotter than the rest of england. Known for inventing both Ping-pong and football, it was also the first country to use or even think up soap. A beautiful place, though it is, at times, a bit dreary.
It was one of the first nations to give right to former slaves, and has already had a female leader, something the rest of the world seems to completely ignore.
The English are known for being bitterly sarcastic, and are quite critical of everything.
As far as music goes, punk is ours. Many a great composer and singer has come from Angle-land. Andrew Lloyd Webber is from England, as was Shakespeare.
One of the first to reject the Catholic Church, though that was just over divorce issues.
Also known by their enemies, the French, who they will bicker with and insult until someone tries to do the same, in which case they will defend them.
The food is wonderful in England, contrary to popular belief.
The flag of England is the Saint George's Cross.
England is also not to be confused with Britain, or the United Kingdom.
"Just lie back, and think of England." A rather nice song.
Git of any particular ethnicity(Let's say American, though It could be any nationality/ethnicity/race), "Oi. You're from England. Does that mean your related to Simon Cowell/The Queen/Hugh Laurie."
Me, "One, I'm British, as I am half welsh. Two, you're America. Does that mean you are related to George Bush?"
