    Well? As far as I understand the best thing we have going for us is the city of London, but since those guys are experts in dodging tax (usually in a legal manner ofc) I just don't understand what we have to offer the world in general.

    Yeah! **** the cities, I would never live in one!
    Our countryside is some of the best in Europe, with some superbly preserved national parks.

    Don't forget the education system too.

    The Ruling of the Waves.
    The navy is a joke (the people in it aren't, just to clarify) and the merchant marine is smaller than that of countries like Denmark and Singapore.
