Necker cube.svg Tired of laughing? RationalWiki has a slightly more serious article about England.
The English, the English, the English are best
I wouldn't give tuppence for all of the rest.
—Flanders and Swann

England is a city on the island of Great Britain (There are also the countries of Wales and Scotland).

Citizens of the U.S.A., who are usually surprisingly good at world geography (with their own geography containing New England), sometimes have the tendency to confuse the concepts of England, Great Britain, and The United Kingdom. England is a nation, Great Britain is an island, and the U.K. is a state. Clear now?

It is known primarily for the invention of real football (and for being really bad at it), its remarkably shitty diverse cuisine[1] (that's French for "food"), and losing the largest empire ever assembled losing the second largest empire ever assembled, the American empire is even larger.
