The United Kingdoms of Grand Britannia, New Britannia, or the Homeland as referred to by its natives, is a federal parliamentary absolute monarchy composed of 20 constituent kingdoms and 1 federal district situated in the northern half of the Lyonesse continent. Grand Britannia serves as the dominant state of the Holy Britannian Empire, a commonwealth between numerous territories and 15 member states, of which Grand Britannia directly borders 2; the Commonwealth of Alestria to the north, and the Commonwealth of Andalus to the south. Additionally to these land borders, the Homeland has coastlines on the Ceres Ocean to the east, and the Cascade Ocean to the west, while also holding a significant portion of the Lancaster Sea in the southeast, and sharing the Sunleth Archipelago with the Commonwealth of Selvaria. At 10,264,902.00 km2 of land area and a population of more than 500 million, Grand Britannia is the second largest state in the Holy Britannian Empire, and the state with the largest population. It is considered a mostly homogeneous state when compared to its other members, and holds one of the most diverse flora and fauna of all the Holy Empire.

Driven out of their homelands after a brutal conflict that crippled the Empire, the remnants of the Britannian Aristocracy and Royal Family evacuated to their colonial holdings in the Lyonesse Continent in 1825, where another prolonged civil war had left parts of the colonies devastated. On the brink of collapse, and with the death of their monarch, Queen Elizabeth III, the nation rallied under the leadership of the newly self-declared Emperor, Richard von Britannia, whom reforms the nation under the ideology of Nationalist Darwinism, establishing sweeping reforms across the Empire and raising the morale of the crippled nation. Fueled by a new nationalistic zeal of growth, Grand Britannia began expanding across the continent, subjugating much of the native states that resided around its borders, as well as beginning to once again exert its force abroad. Although this expansionist phase known as the Second Imperial Age met a major roadblock with a bloody civil war across the continent, the Holy Empire managed to recover within a decade.

By early 1900s it exerted its direct or indirect political and economic influence across all of Lyonesse, and by 1910 the once powerful Anglican Church ceased to have influence over the state as Emperor Darius li Britannia declared the separation of church and state, no longer seeing the need for Emperor Richard's Inquisition and religious control of the education system for sociopolitical control; however, the effects of these are still strongly felt well into contemporary times.

Grand Britannia is a developed country and has the largest economy of all the Holy Britannian Empire in both real and nominal GDP, accounting for 8.6% of the combined GDP of the Empire, fueled by its preferential trade system with its commonwealth, an abundance of natural resources, and high worker participation and productivity. The economy of the Homeland is considered post-industrial, focusing on services rather than manufacturing, typically outsourcing to its other commonwealth members; however still retains a significant industrial output. It's capital city, Pendragon, serves as the capital city of all the Holy Britannian Empire, where current reigning monarch, Her Imperial Majesty Nunnally vi Britannia resides; and her Head of Government and Prime Minister, Pegasus zi Britannia, provides the leadership for Her Majesty's government.

Etymology

The Oxford Accords of 1505 specifically declared that the Kingdoms of Albion, Cumbria, and Gaels would be "United under the name of the United Kingdom of Britannia", these same accords also used the names of "The United Kingdom", or sometimes simply "Britannia" in reference to the new state. These terms are also found during the 1607's Act of Union between Britannia and the Kingdom of Hibernia. Britannia was widely used in popular speak in reference to the United Kingdoms since it's adoption, although official documents of the era retain "The United Kingdoms" as the official name of the state.

After the defeat at Edinburgh and the subsequent collapse of the Tudor Dynasty over the Britannian Empire, Queen Elizabeth III leaves Richard von Britannia as her sole heir to the throne, whom sees the colonies where the surviving royalty of the nation escape as "Britannian Holyland", subsequently declaring himself the new Emperor of "The Holy Britannian Empire", which would "see itself brought back to glory by the will of God". The Provisional Parliament of 1808 promptly passed the State and Royal Titles Act, which adopts the name of 'The Holy Empire of Britannia" as the new and official name for the state.

Britannian is the most used and factually correct adjective used for the purposes of referring to things and people belonging to the nation. The term is tied with citizenship and matters of nationality by both the government and the people of Britannia.
