    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a sovereign state in Europe. Lying off the north-western coast of the European mainland, it includes the island of Great Britain (the name of which is also loosely applied to the whole country), the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands.[9] Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state—the Republic of Ireland.Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea to its east, the English Channel to its south and the Celtic Sea to its south-southwest, attributing to it having the 12th longest coastline in the world. The Irish Sea lies between Great Britain and Ireland. With an area of 242,500 square kilometers (93,600 sq mi), the UK is the 78th-largest sovereign state in the world and the 11th-largest in Europe. It is also the 22nd-most populous country, with an estimated 65.1 million inhabitants.Together, this makes it the fourth most densely populated country in the European Union.

    To the north-west of France, to the east of Ireland (which it shares a land border with), to the south-east of Iceland, to the west of Denmark and on the exact opposite side of the world to a point 155 nautical miles south-south-east of New Zealand.

    Of course, what would be really useful is if somebody had come up with the idea of drawing diagrammatic representations of the world to show the relative location of landmasses, islands and countries; just imagine how useful it would be if such a thing existed...
