With a cosmopolitan population of over 65 million , and a relatively small land area of just 243,000 sq km, nothing is ever too far away in this ancient land full of history. Its overall population density is one of the highest in the world. Almost one-third of the population lives in England's prosperous and fertile southeast and is predominantly urban and suburban--with about 8 million in the capital of London, which remains the largest city in Europe.
The United Kingdom is ethnically diverse, both as a result of its history and the reach of what was the British Empire, and as a result of its membership and proximity to Europe. Britain was the world's first industrialised country. Its economy remains one of the largest, but it has for many years been based on service industries rather than on manufacturing. Despite being a major member of the EU, the country is not part of the euro zone, with the currency remaining the British Pound.
