A soveriegn state, not a country. It is made up of England and Scotland (which are countries), Wales (a principality) and Northern Ireland (a province). Ireland doesnt exist, there are only the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Britain is not the same thing; it's real name is Great Britain, and it's the island on which Wales, England and Scotland are found. When King James inherited the English crown, which already owned that of Wales, Great Britain became a monarchy, hence the british empire-not the empire of the UK. The union jack is not the flag of Great Britain, it is a modified version which encorporates Northern Ireland, making it the flag of the UK.
the uk isnt a fucking country
