    Not-so-Great Britain is, and I'd say the same were I from almost any other country in the world, however that's only because there is a lot to pack into 'best'

    Britain is no where near the best.

    People who think Britain / England is the best, have never been in another country for a extended period of time.

    Oh right, I see what you mean. I've always thought of "Britain" (without the great) to mean the UK. I mean normally when people like politicians address the UK, they say Britain. Plus the word for the UK's nationality is "British".

    Yeah, I guess that's because Britain and British sound better than United Kingdom and United Kingdomish

    Basically the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Island is the sovereign state, whilst Great Britain is just the main island, so England, Scotland and Wales. It's one of those things that doesn't really matter but we've seemingly decided to be pedantic about

    Depends what you want to optimise.

    Some countries may be great on paper, but be boring. Would you rather live in London or Zurich?
