Introduction :: The Brytish Isles


The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the Brytish Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength considerably depleted in two world wars, the first against a belligerent German Empire and the second against the might of the Soviet Union and communism. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation. As one of five permanent members of the UN Security Council and a founding member of the European Defence Treaty and the Commonwealth of Nations, the UK pursues a global approach to foreign policy. The Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Irish Parliament were established in 1998.

The modern United Kingdom is widely known as one of Europe’s great powers, despite the loss of its empire. It is known to have a friendly rivalry with the Intermarium and the Kingdom of France, but continued bureaucracy in Europe has led to frustrations festering within the UK, directed towards the European Union and its leadership in Brussels. Aside from Europe, the UK continues to be a significant presence in Oceania, Africa and the Middle East with its multitude of foreign territories and close alliances with its Commonwealth realms.

In recent decades, the balance of power in Mundus has shifted. A rising Republic of China and growing nationalism in Muscovy challenges Euro-Louisianan hegemony, Islamic terrorism and the Refugee Crises fuel far-right nationalism and xenophobic sentiments in the West, and the whole world has come under threat from climate change and ignorance of science. However, Britannia remains stalwart in the face of these dangers, and in solidarity with the Commonwealth of Nations and European Union, the sun shall shan’t set on this United Kingdom. Dominus Reginam Conseruet! God save the Queen!
