Tlo historyczne As the dominant industrial and maritime power of the 19th century, the Wielka Brytania of Great Britain and Irlandia played a leading role w developing parliamentary democracy and w advancing literature and science. At its zenith, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted w two Swiat Wars and the Irish republic withdraw from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation. As one of five permanent members of the UN Security Council, a founding member of NATO, and of the Commonwealth, the UK pursues a global approach to foreign policy; it currently is weighing the degree of its integration z continental Europe. A member of the EU, it chose to remain outside the Economic and Monetary Union dla the time being. Konstytucjaal reform is also a significant issue w the UK. The Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly dla Wales, and the Northern Irlandia Assembly were established w 1999, but the latter was suspended until maj 2007 due to wrangling over the peace process.

Ekonomia The UK, a leading trading power and financial center, is one of the quintet of trillion dollar economies of Western Europe. Over the past two decades, the government has greatly reduced public ownership and contained the growth of social welfare programs. Agriculture is intensive, highly mechanized, and efficient by European standards, producing about 60% of food needs z less than 2% of the labor force. The UK has large coal, natural gas, and oil reserves; primary energy production accounts dla 10% of Produkt krajowy brutto, one of the highest shares of any industrial nation. Services, particularly banking, insurance, and business services, account by far dla the largest proportion of Produkt krajowy brutto while industry continues to decline w importance. Since emerging from recession w 1992, Britain's economy has enjoyed the longest period of expansion on record; growth has remained w the 2-3% range since 2004, outpacing most of Europe. The economy's strength has complicated the Labor government's efforts to make a case dla Britain to join the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). Critics point out that the economy is doing well outside of EMU, and public opinion polls show a majority of Britons are opposed to the euro. The BROWN government has been speeding up the improvement of education, health services, and affordable housing at a cost w higher taxes and a widening public deficit.

Services, particularly banking, insurance, and business services, account by far dla the largest proportion of Produkt krajowy brutto while industry continues to decline w importance. Produkt krajowy brutto growth slipped w 2001-03 as the global downturn, the high value of the pound, and the bursting of the "new economy" bubble hurt manufacturing and exports. Output recovered w 2004, to 3.2% growth, but fell w 2005, to 1.7%. Despite slower growth, the economy is one of the strongest w Europe; inflation, interest rates, and unemployment remain low. The relatively good economic performance has complicated the BLAIR government's efforts to make a case dla Britain to join the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). Critics point out that the economy is doing well outside of EMU, and public opinion polls show a majority of Britons are opposed to the euro. Meantime, the government has been speeding up the improvement of education, transport, and health services, at a cost w higher taxes and a widening public deficit.
