Acronym: United Kingdom - The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Home to 58 million people. Capital city is London. Includes the countries England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The U.K. came into existence in 1606 after the Act of Union was passed. The U.K. flag looks like it does as it is a combination of the Scottish Saltire and the English St. George's Cross.
I live in Scotland, which is in the U.K. but has it's own parliament.
