I was under the belief that the United Kingdom is a country, and England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are territories/areas/provinces/states/whatever you want to call 'em in the United Kingdom. But I'm just a stupid American, huh?

That's because America has always been a country that considers itself a melting pot of everyone in our culture and nation. Blacks, Asians, whites, Scots, Frenchies, Ruskies, etc., are all just considered "American."

And on the contrary, the individual groups of the U.K. all absolutely insist that they are all very, very different and distinct peoples when on the grand scheme of things, they're all pretty similar.

Yet when outsiders look in and say, "You guys all seem the same to me," instead of saying that you're all "U.K.'ers" or something silly like that, they simply say, "English." Which then leads to all kinds of butthurt about how your grandfathers couldn't get along and share some little island.

to clarify,

wales is a COUNTRY
scotland is a COUNTRY
England is a COUNTRY
Ireland is a COUNTRY

together, they make the United Kingdom, a group of countries who (except for ireland maybe) are basically alied together.

Scotland is Not a country, because to be a country, you have to meet all of eight criteria. Scotland does not meet two of them:

1.Has sovereignty. No other State (not as the State as in the US but a state as a territory) should have power over the country's territory.
No. The United Kingdom Parliament definitely has power over Scotland's territory.
2.Has external recognition. A country has been "voted into the club" by other countries.
No. Scotland does not have external recognition nor does Scotland have its own embassies in other independent countries.

Also this goes for Whales,England,And Northern Ireland.

Fixed. American schools aren't so bad after all.

Oh, and I think you missed his point. Being from the same region, all of you that dwell in and around the United Kingdom have similar physical qualities. The United Kingdom "countries" don't consist of different peoples.

Like Spain and Mexico for instance. A Spaniard's skin color is generally lighter than a Mexican's, even though they derive from the same ancestor. 2 people that should be similar, yet are not.

Even Asia shows these characteristics. Koreans, Japanese, and Chinese all are physically different (I hear they're eyes slant differently, not to sound racist or anything).

If UK'ers show these differences, they are incredibly minuscule. So yeah, you're not that different from each other.

I'm an American. But a LOT of my family comes from Scotland (clan Lindsay), and even *I* get defensive when people say my ancestors are British. Scotland, Ireland, and Wales are NOT part of the United Kingdom because they originally wanted to be. They are part of the United Kingdom because England was bigger and more powerful, and basically told these other countries that, "We'll stop killing you if you join our alliance."

Scotland and France were joined in 'The Auld Alliance', which was basically them against England. Scotland did a pretty good job holding their own (see Bannockburn) and was well on the way to earning its independence. I mean, this was one of the only countries (along with Ireland) to regularly win battles with Viking invaders. However, the Scots were too busy warring among the clans for rights to the throne to unify against the English. Once the Scottish throne and the English throne became linked through marriage, many Scottish kings decided they wanted to stay in the big city of London and enjoy what it had to offer, and turned their backs of Scotland. And while they did this, the English parliament enacted laws basically turning Scotland into a territory.

And that, in a nutshell, is the history of my people.

That is also why I don't like people to say I'm British. I'm Scottish, God damn it, and proud of it.

Also, we used to kick your asses in football every time, until you started spending enormous amounts of money to hire foreigners. So there.
