Great Britain? Or the United Kingdom? There is “No such

Great Britain is/was the term used for the island containing
the contiguous nations of England, Scotland and Wales.

Great Britain is only used to distinguish Britain from
Brittania Minor, or Brittany, in France.

The term "Great Britain" was officially used only
after King James I (who was also James VI of Scotland) acceded to the throne of
England and Wales in 1603, styling/calling himself King of Great Britain,
although legislative union between Scotland and England did not take place

Man). It has no legal significance.

The Channel Islands, which include the independent States of
Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, are the only remaining components of the
"Duchy of Normandy" which still belong to the English Crown.

Where a "nation" is defined as "a
body of people marked off by common descent, language, culture or historical
tradition" [Chambers Everyday Dictionary] (English-England) England is and
