    1. The U.K is tiny compared to the U.S

    2. The U.S has many different climates (deserts,mountains,forests,tundra and grassland all in the one place) but the climate is pretty much the same all across the U.K

    3. The U.K has a monarchy but the U.S has never had a Royal family at all.

    4. They both have different education systems

    5. The U.K is made up of four countries (Scotland,England,Northern Ireland and Wales)

    6. Different festivals and holidays (Such as the diamond jubilee and other Royal holidays in the U.k and the fourth of July and Thanksgiving in the U.S)

    7. Very different accents!

    8. The U.K has more history as it has been a nation longer than the U.S

    There's probably loads more but i'm too tired to think right now! I hope i helped anyway!

    America is to the West of the Atlantic and UK is to the East of it. UK is a country in Europe. America is a continent between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. If what is meant by America is USA, then it is a country in North America. Originally colonies that went to form USA were British colonies. On attaining freedom, these colonies federated and adopted a republican constitution. UK consists of England, Scotland and a part of Ireland. UK has amonarchical form of government.

    A bit different, like different foods, like America have Hershey and Reeses, and only some shops in the UK stock them, so it's hard to find. Different shops, such as the UK has Primark, and some other shops that America doesn't and America has some the UK doesn't. Different schooling system, such as Middle School, High school, Elementary, where the UK normally only has Nursery, Primary, and Secondary. Lockers, sports teams ect. They are quite different but they are also similar. (:

    The united states of America is a young version of the united kingdom, eg the world power, strong global influence, incredibly strong military for the time, undefeatable, rich, arrogant and ignorant because they think it will last forever.

    They will eventually become like us (the uk) old and wise but with a rotting population an ever shrinking military and part of a big pensioner group just like the EU.

    Like father like son. Americas Denise is sadly inevitable.

  • The UK is the birthplace of modern liberal democracy and freedom and is ruled by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the world's greatest Head of State.

    America is a cruel tyranny based on the lie that everyone is equal, which has spent its entire history conquering and ethnically cleansing defenceless natives whilst hypocritically denouncing everyone else.

    America is a planet of its own, it has frozen over parts, warm, barren/desert like, mild and forests.

    USA has better house prices

    UK has huge taxes on petroleum

    USA has loads of tv ads

    UK once owned India


    North America


    Gambia and south Africa


    UK has better healthcare

    In my opinion i feel strangers are friendlier

    They are pretty similiar actually,

    They are both largely influential on the rest of the world

    they both get new gadgets and technology before the rest of the world (except china) (USA probably gets it a little before UK)

    Hope that helped

    In so many ways such as the weather. in america its more hot but in england it constantly rains, we do get sun but thats only for 2 months around july-august.

    also we have a lot of historical places and america doesnt. England is also mulitculutural and we dont have that much racism like u do in the amerca. In the usa however things like clothes, food, cards, houses are more cheaper and more nicer, u also have nice places as well and very good food, i luv watching man vs food. u also have more talent, good tv programmes and many more.
