England was a country that was part of the United Kingdom.

Description and ClimateEdit

England shared land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west. The Irish Sea lies north west of England, whilst the Celtic Sea lies to the southwest. The North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south separated England from Europe. The country covered much of the central and southern part of the island of Great Britain, which lies in the North Atlantic; and includes over 100 smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly, and the Isle of Wight.

England's terrain mostly comprises low hills and plains, especially in central and southern England. However, there are uplands in the north and in the south west. The former capital of England was London.

England has a temperate maritime climate: it is mild with temperatures not much lower than 0 °C in winter and not much higher than 32 °C in summer. The weather is often damp and changeable. The coldest months are January and February, while July is normally the warmest month. Months with mild to warm weather are May, June, September and October. Rainfall is fairly even throughout the year.

HistoryEdit

The area now called England was first inhabited by modern humans during Earth’s Upper Paleolithic period, but takes its name from the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes who settled during the 5th and 6th centuries. England became a unified state in the 10th century, and since the 15th century, had a significant cultural and legal impact on the wider world. The English language, the Anglican Church, and English law – the basis for the common law legal systems of many other countries around the world – developed in England, and the country's parliamentary system of government has been widely adopted by other nations. The Industrial Revolution began in 18th-century England, transforming its society into the world's first industrialized nation.

EconomyEdit

England's economy was one of the largest in the world. England was a leader in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors and in key technical industries, particularly aerospace, the arms industry, and the manufacturing side of the software industry. London, home to the London Stock Exchange, the United Kingdom's main stock exchange and the largest in Europe, was England's financial center—100 of Europe's 500 largest corporations were based in London. London was the largest financial center in Europe.

Modern EnglandEdit

Because England was the only European Nation that managed to hang on during Earth's WWIII, it was the first to recover from its economy being in shambles and its military drained to its last resources. The English went on to settle many planets (such as Avalon, Planet, Avalon Branch and Avalon Mist etc.)
