The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly referred to as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a country in Western Europe. In the 21st century, it consisted of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and its capital city was London. Little is known about the nation in the 31st century, but it was a participant in the 3004 Earth Olympiad [4ACV13] and it is a member of the United Nations. [3ACV18]
In an alternate timeline, Great Britain had won the American Revolutionary War in 1775 and rules all of North America (now called West Britannia) in the 31st century. [6ACV23]
- Big Ben used to be part of the Houses of Parliament which was located in the United Kingdom's capital city of London but in the 27th century the supervillain governor of New New York stole it and had it transported to Monument Beach.
- In "That Darn Katz!", after the stop of the Earth's rotation, Big Ben was pulled to Paris, France, replacing the Eiffel Tower. After the original Big Ben was stolen by the supervillain governor, the English must have made a replica.
- It is possible that the United Kingdom itself no longer exists as a nation state. This is supported by the fact they are represented in the United Nations as 'Great Britain' and the monarch now uses the title the 'Queen of England'.
