The United Kingdom has historically been one of the most powerful states on Earth, at one point being the seat of power of the British Empire, a state whose territories spanned globally. The United Kingdom formed from a monarchy and throughout the centuries slowly became a representative Parliamentary monarchy.
The United Kingdom was the first country to industrialize and undergo rapid industrialization, introducing mass production and steam power.
The earliest stages of the Revelation of Wizardkind began in England due to this. Wizards have had a greater presence in the UK historically, and the United Kingdom was one of the first states to adopt measures to regulate magic users and protect them. During World War I however, it drafted wizards into the Royal military, and the horrors of war dealt a great blow to the magical British population.
During World War II, the UK suffered heavy bombing from the Luftwaffe of Nazi Germany. Magical warfare and sustained siege from the Third Reich resulted in many cities on the island being heavily damaged, necessitating extensive reconstruction after the war. It was one of the key members of the Allies.
During the Type-III Awakening Incident, the United Kingdom was one of the most influential countries in the fight against the Parahuman Uprising, leading the charge in mobilizing military forces to retake affected regions of Europe and even other continents and restore order.
