Introduction
The United Kingdom consists of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Located off the northwestern coast of continental Europe, the country includes the island of Great Britain, the northeastern portion of the island of Ireland, and numerous smaller islands. The total area of the UK is approximately 94,000 square miles (243,600 sq km). Northern Ireland is the only portion of the UK that shares a land boundary with another country – the Republic of Ireland. The rest of the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Irish Sea, North Sea, and English Channel. The Channel Tunnel, which runs under the English Channel to connect the UK with continental Europe, is the longest underwater tunnel in the world.

Population and language
More than 63 million people live in the UK, making it the third most populous nation in the European Union and the twenty-first worldwide. It is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. The largest cities include London  (8.3 million residents), West Midlands/Birmingham (2.3 million), Manchester (2.2 million), West Yorkshire/Leeds (1.5 million), and Glasgow (1.2 million). Approximately 53 million people live in England, while 5.3 million live in Scotland, 3.1 million in Wales, and 1.8 million in Northern Ireland.

Over 92% of the population is white (of which 84% are English, 9% are Scottish, 5% are Welsh, and 3% are Northern Irish). Due to a long history of immigration, many ethnicities and nationalities are represented here, including Pakistani, Irish, Caribbean, African, Bangladeshi, and Chinese. The United Kingdom's official language is British English, while Irish, Welsh, Cornish, and Scottish Gaelic are also spoken in different regions of the country. Many residents also speak French or German. Approximately 72% of UK residents are Christian, with the next largest faiths being Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism, and Buddhism.

The United Kingdom offers a wide array of cultural, historical, and natural attractions. London, the capital city of the United Kingdom, is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations.

The western portions of the United Kingdom tend to be windy and wetter than the eastern regions. The weather changes frequently, but is not often subject to extreme temperatures.

Major industries include tourism, manufacturing (especially automotive and aerospace), pharmaceutical R&D, and agriculture. The city of London is renowned as a world financial center. The UK economy is increasingly service-oriented. Exports are valued at $479 billion USD, and imports at $639 billion USD. The nation's currency is the pound sterling (£).
