1. Britain as a powerful country
In the 1920s
, the British Empire
was large and powerful and 25% of the world's population
lived under British rule and more than a quarter of the land in the world
belonged to Britain.
The Commonwealth is an association of countries that were once part of the British Empire and that still have political and other links with each other.
The British Commonwealth of Nations was created in 1931 by the Statute of Westminster, based on decisions made at the 1926 Imperial Conference.
Since 1949, it has been known simply as the Commonwealth and is an association of 53 independent nations plus several British dependencies such as Bermuda, the Falkland Islands and Gibraltar. Al
