Max ... are you just reaaaallllllyyyyy stupid? You spelt Ireland Island - more than once! If you're British you should be ashamed of yourself - everyone knows how to spell Ireland from when they're about 6 years old.

United Kingdom - The bigger island on the right (Including England, Wales and Scotland) AND Northern Island (a small section of the smaller island on the left). It also includes all of the much much smaller islands that are scattered around the the bigger island.
Great Britain - The bigger island on it's own (England, Wales and Scotland) plus all of the much much smaller islands that are scattered around Great Britain. It does not include Northern Island.

George from Leeds, I doubt very much that you are an expert on anything with terrible spelling like that.

I feel the previous comments on Northern Ireland are an over simplification,as a large percentage in the north feel a much greater affinity with the Irish Republic than with "England" or the UK.The government of Northern Ireland was a legacy situation,owing to any local powers being removed during the "troubles".There is now an Assembly-how well it functions I am not aware,but do know that some amenities are still duplicated for religious reasons.

@ Meeka: The size of the UK is 241,590 sq km (or 150,117 sq miles) as stated by this website. In comparison to the the US States, I'd say they we are around the same size as Montana that is about 236,647 sq km (or 147,046 sq miles)or California, which is about 263,460 sq km (163,707 sq miles). The USA is a total of 5,692,959 sq km (3,537,441 sq miles). As you can imagine, it can feel like were pretty crowded here ;-). if i wanted i would calculate out the number of ppl to one sq km of land....I'll leave that to someone else.....hope that helps somewhat.
