The U.K. has produced many of the world’s great writers, including William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Robert Burns. J.K. Rowling, the writer of the Harry Potter books, is British.

The United Kingdom has been a leading trading nation for more than 500 years. In the 19th century, British industry helped make the country the most powerful nation in the world.
