    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a state in Western Europe made up of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The first three are on the island of Great Britain, so that name is often used for the country as a whole. Numerous island are part of the U.K. such as the Shetlands and Orkneys. Politically neither the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea nor the Channel Islands are part of the U.K. They are Crown dependencies. See Wikipedia

    PRETTY MUCH SO. ENGLAND, WALES, SCOTLAND AND NORTHERN IRELAND FORM THE UNITED KINGDOM OR GREAT BRITIAN. BRITIAN IS JUST SHORT FOR GREAT BRITIAN.
