If The Uk, Canada, Australia And New Zealand Were A Single Country

Recommended Posts

Found the attached elsewhere on the interweb:

UK Canada Australia New Zealand Total World Ranking

population 65,111,143 36,286,378 24,155,300 4,569,678 130,122,499 10th

GDP (USD) 2,849,000,000,000 1,548,000,000,000 1,620,000,000,000 173,200,000,000 6,190,200,000,000 3rd

GDP per capita 43,756 42,661 67,066 37,902 47,572 17th

land area (km^2) 243,610 9,985,000 7,692,000 268,021 18,188,631 1st

nobel prizes 125 23 12 3 163 2nd

nobel prizes per 10M capita 19 6 5 7 13 14th

2012 summer Olypmic gold medals 29 1 8 9 47 1st

2014 winter Olypmic gold medals 1 10 0 0 11 2nd

A few things that surprised me:

- The total land area is only a bit more than Russia.

- How far up the stand alone table for Nobel prizes per capita the UK is - 9th.

- How well the combined total does across the summer and winter Olympics.

edit: OK, I give up trying to add an attachment or format this as a table!

I'm in favour of a "commonwealth!" of countries with a similar history!

Scotland would still be ruled by a party that wanted independence.

Edit to say: Good point, though, TBC.

As would Quebec! Actually, I take that back, the Liberals beat the Parti Québécois in 2014 - possible lessons there for wee Krankie.

I agree, better for countries that generally like each other to work together as equals than, well, the alternative.

Even Canada can join!

One forgets the US 'influence' in the breaking up of the Empire post-WW2. Partly it was financial - the UK was broke - but the US played a huge part in wanting to take over as top dog.

I was shocked myself the other day to see Australia's population was 25 million. I'm sure when I did my working visa thing in the 80s it was 15m which was less than the population of jakarta. 25m is beginning to sound like a serious country.

problem sorted.

we do a land exchange/people swap with the quebecois, so they can all move to england,harmonise with scotland and be run by the EU(civil law)

the english can all move to canada and be governed under english common law(basically US constitution)...means we can also bury the hatchet with uncle sam for the war that shouldn't have happened 200 or so years ago

.

likewise with NI...the unionists can move to canada,and let ireland unify and join fully with the EU.

no more IRA is one of the bonuses.

of course the downside of staying in the EU is that the judicial system is completely the opposite to ours, and you will already be guilty of something,and will spend years in jail trying to prove your innocence before you are released...at least in theory that is how the civil (napoleonic)system works.

If you want proof of that, then just read up on charles de gaulle,he basically confirmed the difference and that's why we are not suitable for their project.
