RE: United Kingdom
Economy = Strong, however a worry about inflation [Currently at 4.5% per year btw] - and that its in early stages of rising.

Government = Democracy talk about boring laws and stuff in the houes of parliment, atm, Labour are in power (ruled by tony blair).

Land = Well, service sector is more popular then the manufacturing industry and primary industry, thats all went to the far east in the past 10 years. Not many farming industries or mining left now. Most business are services, rather then make stuff.

We have a minimum wage that you must be paid, which works out at 4.30 an hour [as of a few weeks time]. Meaning in some parts the standard of living is high.

We have a north/south divide, for example... if you living in london you will get paid 12.30 per hour for a job, you will get paid around 5.90 for the same job in the far north. Sounds unfair, bu in the north the standard of lving is alot less and cheaper.
