Flag of Great Britain Great Britain is a formable country, and can be formed by any nation in the British culture group. Located in the British Isles, it does not exist in any start date until May 12, 1707. Due to it requiring quite a few provinces from Flag of Scotland Scotland and Flag of England England, both of which are western, decently developed countries, it is usually fairly strong when formed.

Many who play Flag of England England decide to form Flag of Great Britain Great Britain, and so it has unique late-game troop models, as well as various special missions and decisions. It does not, however, have missions for war against Flag of France France, one of the contrasts to Flag of England England, to which it is quite similar.
