The United Kingdom of Great Britain officially came into existence in 1903 when the British government recognised the Irish Dominion as a self-governing member of the British Domions akin to their Canadian or Australian cousins.
For history of this nation prior to 1911 see here.
During what has been styled as the Edwardian Age Britain's influence on its dominions is at its xenith with territories such as New Zealand, New Foundland and South Africa calling for closer union with the United Kingdom. The current liberal government has begun consultation on social issues regarding the rights of workers and women's sufferage although the Prime Minister has remarked that the King influences matters too much. Despite their disagreements the King and his first minister have a unique relationship and shared goal; an inclusive but prosperous Empire.
