    Polandball Wiki

    The British Empire-icon.png British Empireball was a form of the UK-icon.png UKball as an empireball. It likes to take over every country. The British Empire has invaded 75% all of all countries on Earth-icon.png Earthball owning 25% of the total world.

    History

    The foundations of British Empireball were laid when Kingdom of England-icon.png Kingdom of Englandball and Kingdom of Scotland-icon.png Kingdom of Scotlandball were seperate kingdomballs. In 1496, King Henry VII of Englandball, following the success of Spanish Empire-icon.png Spanish Empireball and Kingdom of Portugal-icon.png Portugese Empireball in overseas exploration, commisioned John Cabot to lead a voyage to discover a route to Asia via the North Atlantic. Five years later after the European Discovery of America, but it made landfall on the coast of Newfoundlandball, and, mistakenly beliving that it had reached Asia, there was no attempt to found a colony. Cabot led another voyage to the Americas the following year but nothing was ever heard of its ships again.

    After Scotland-icon.png Scotlandball went almost bankrupt after trying to establish a colony in Spanish Panama-icon.png Spanish Panamaball's clay, England-icon.png Englandball offered Scotland-icon.png Scotlandball a union and created the Kingdom of Great Britain. Throughout the ages, more colonies were established, One of the most famous ones being Virginia-icon.png Jamestownball (Virginia), or the Lost Colony-icon.png lost colonyball. One of its most prized possessions was USA-icon.png USAball who at the time was known as ColAmerica-icon.png Thirteen Coloniesball. Unfortunately for the British Empire-icon.png Crown, Thirteen Coloniesball would revolt, and Britain would lose the colony.

    Britan also had colonies in North America, and British Australia-icon.png British Australiaball, but later made a colony in India-icon.png Indiaball, (who was named British Raj-icon.png British Rajball or British India at the time) British Raj-icon.png British Rajball Brought the crown tea, and the crown loved it. British Empireball made more and more colonies in Asia, such as British Hong Kong-icon.png British Hong Kongball, British Singapore-icon.png British Tringapore, British Malaya-icon.png British Malayaball, and British Ceylon-icon.png British Ceylonball.

     It only made colonies where it could get good things, for example, it had a lot of colonies in the Caribbean because it could get sugar in those places that can increase its economy, while only having a British Guyana-icon.pngBritish Honduras-icon.pngfew in South and Central America, because the land didn't bring Britain many good things that attracted him to build more colonies. It later made even more colonies in Union of South Africa-icon.pngBritish Kenya-icon.pngKingdom of Egypt-icon.pngBritish Nigeria-icon.png Africa.

    It got what it wanted in the Scramble for Africa, but then the colonies fought to end British rule. Revolution after the revolution, Britain lost most of its colonies until it had nothing more than an island in South America, who fights with Argentina-icon.png Argentinaball over its other Falklands-icon.png colony.

    The British empire supposedly was thought to end in 1922 when Ireland-icon.png Irelandball gained Independence, but it actually didn't, since it still had colonies outside of Europe. In 1941, the Japanese Empire kidnapped British Hong Kong-icon.png British Hong Kongball, British Singapore-icon.png British Tringapore, British Malaya-icon.png British Malayaball and more, which triggered the British. 4 years later, they surrendered and the empire once again controls its colonies again. In 1997, the empire died when British Hong Kong-icon.png Hong Kongball was stolen taken by China-icon.png Chinaball, who claimed it to be a "handover" Though the empire has supposedly died, the sun will rise again on the British Empire when the UK successfully gain full control of Hong Kong.

    Colonies

    It used to own

    Present day:

    And some colonies that are now part of these countries:

    Relations

    Friends

    • Portuguese Empire-icon.png Portuguese Empireball - Gee, have we STILL been friends since the 14th century? You REALLY are a good and loyal friend, sticking by my side from the Middle Ages to the Modern Era, where China-icon.png THEY ended our empires.
    • France-icon.png Franceball - You were a real bulldog during those wars we had, but I forgive you... We became allies in World War I and World War II.
    • Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball - I still don't really like the lad that much because the expeditioners kept trying to take my colonies back then! Well at least we're fine now, and I liberated most of the Dutch clay from Nazi occupation.
    • Kingdom of Hawaii-icon.png Kingdom of Hawaiiball - Rough start, I tampered with them a lil' and they ended up killing mah explorer. But eventually, I gave them emperor a British America-icon.png pretty cool flag and they liked it. Now I helped them civilize and they doin really good! Sorry bout' 1843, bud!

    Complicated

    • CSA-icon.png CSAball - We were good friends actually, I bought cotton from him, we shared the same Anthem that was next to Bonnie Blue Flag and Dixie, I wanted to help it out, but it had slavery and I was only going to help it if it ended slavery, but it did not, and I did not wanna help a slave lover.
    • Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball - It was my rival right before the war, I even allied to Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japan to be "less scared from it". But even if so, the way Communism-icon.png tankies rose up and killed your precious monarchy was unfair.
    • Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssiniaball - Also a rougher start. Wanted me to do a "crusade" against Islam, but was pissed and arrested the poor UK-icon.png minorities in its clay when I declined the offer. We went to war some time, but relations started to improve since we were against Fascist Italy-icon.png pizza eater and those Derg-icon.png commies that ruined ye legacy. You're pretty hard and resistant, but I ain't giving back that stuff I took, so frick off.

    Enemies

    Over its existence, the British Empire-icon.png empire had made a lot of enemies or rivals.
