Map of United Kingdom

Last update August 6th, 2014



Geography

The United Kingdom (commonly known as the UK) is a twelve region nation bordering eight other states, this unusually large number of borders historically made the UK a key strategic crossroads between Europe and North America.

The resource distribution has left the eUK with a regular Weapons bonus of 60% and a food bonus of 40%.

The presence of Oil has seen the UK become a regular sparring partner with Canada who seeks to grab that resource for itself whenever the UK finds itself distracted by an invasion from a larger nation or during its periodic wars with Ireland or occasional raids from France.

The UK has been part of many military alliances, recently becoming part of the SIRIUS military alliance as approved by a national referendum in July 2014.


Due to current occupation of neighboring nations the eUK is currently bordered by Poland, Chile, Germany in place of Netherlands, Belgium, France & Denmark
