The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, more commonly known as the United Kingdom or the UK is a sovereign state located off the northwestern coast of continental Europe. It is an island nation, spanning Great Britain and the north-east part of Ireland, although the whole island of Ireland was part of the United Kingdom between 1801 and 1922.

The United Kingdom is a unitary state consisting of four countries: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
It is governed by a parliamentary system with its seat of government in London, England, but with three devolved national administrations in Belfast, Northern Ireland; Cardiff, Wales and Edinburgh, Scotland. England does not have its own national administration.

The Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, of Guernsey and Jersey, are not part of the United Kingdom.
