1 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Of course France is famously known for its gastronomy, but that is just the visible part of the iceberg. With more than 84 millions of tourists in 2015 is the most visited country in the world with USA and Spain. And it is also ranked number 6 in terms of GDP. Is in the top 5 or healthcare and the top 1 in Europe for its number of diverse cultures and origins.

Amazing country, simply beautiful, very open minded. Don't listen to the stereotypes, all my encounters with French people were always really pleasant, I mean you'll have the equivalent of rednecks everywhere, France too, but I've never met any.

France is the most visiting country on earth, a lot of variety for landscape, the best food ever and the French way of life is very famous.

A lot of people call it England but the country is actually called United Kingdom. - cosmo

England contributed more to the world than any other county. Don't know why it is listed as United Kingdom.

Britain is the most famous country in the world forget Europe.

From the most inventions of any nation, to producing world class art, literature, music, film, education, etc, etc, the UK has given so much.

The UK also embraces change more than almost any country - look at fashion trends started here first - the mini skirt etc...

An open, friendly, welcoming people of creativity, hard work and with that British sense of fair play.

Yes, it is not perfect - but where is? - the British are self depracating too - not often found elsewhere.

In balance, for it's size it punches well above its weight and offers almost everything.

A fine place with fine people.
