|United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland|
This mod requires Brave New World. It does not replace Elizabeth's England.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a sovereign state in Europe. Lying off the north-western coast of the European mainland, the country includes the island of Great Britain—a term also applied loosely to refer to the whole country—the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands.Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state (the Republic of Ireland).Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to its west and north, the North Sea to its east and the English Channel to its south. The Irish Sea lies between Great Britain and Ireland. The UK has an area of 93,800 square miles (243,000 km2), making it the 80th-largest sovereign state in the world and the 11th-largest in Europe.
Winston Churchill, whose full name was, "Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill," was undoubtedly one of the most important people of the twentieth century. At various times a soldier, journalist, author, and politician, during his long life Churchill was known for both his intellectual brilliance and his outspoken support for what were often unpopular opinions. At various times he was either the most beloved or the most hated man in Britain. In the years since his death Churchill's reputation has grown to semi-legendary proportions.
A descendant of the famous English general the Duke of Marlborough, Churchill was born in 1874 at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. After a mediocre performance at the public school Harrow, Churchill joined the army, where he freely used his family connections to get assigned to several colonial wars, narrowly escaping death on a number of occasions - and by all accounts having a ripping good time while doing so. During this period Churchill became a very popular wartime journalist, writing numerous columns and several best-selling books about his experiences. Churchill's maneuvering and flagrant self-promotion alienated his fellow officers and essentially ended any chance of high promotion in the Army; however he was able to parlay his popularity to gain a seat in Parliament.
After being voted out of office Churchill wrote a history of the Second World War, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953. In 1965 Churchill suffered a stroke and passed away at the age of 90. Churchill's death was mourned across the globe, and his funeral was attended by an enormous number of foreign dignitaries. His reputation has only grown in the years since his death, and today Churchill is possibly the most popular and revered figure in all of English history.
Dawn of Man
Most heroic and brave, cautionary and noble, Sir Winston Churchill; Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, champion of the British Empire, and Defender of the Crown, we humbly welcome you. As Prime Minister of Great Britain during her darkest hours, you led the United Kingdom as it stood alone amidst the ravaging storm of the Nazi war machine, and you would triumph against Germany's bloody endeavour to hegemonise the European continent. A reputed artist, writer, historian, orator and statesman, you were a man beyond your time, and you fought tirelessly for the right of the British Empire to retain its dignity and nobility, refusing to stand by as its glorious legacy was sold into history at the hands of your successors. Although worn by age and war, as a devoted man of God and King and Country, you have stood the test of time as Britain's greatest politician.
Honoured Prime Minister, your empire has been scattered, and this union of realms has fallen into disarray. But Britannia's call still resounds in the distant, green hills, and her people need only a hero to echo it. Can you protect the heritage of your empire and restore the balance of power in this world? Can you re-ignite the fires which once spurred the lone, British Isles to bring enlightenment across this barbarous world? Can you build a civilisation that will stand the test of time?
Introduction: "Come on, come on. Introduce yourself. Don't just stand there with that hapless stare. Do you know who I am? I am His Majesty's confidant; Winston Churchill. Sir, Winston Churchill."
Introduction: "Yes, yes, come on. I don't have all day standing around waiting for you to introduce yourself. I'll go first then, shall I? Right. I am Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of His Majesty's Government of this United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland."
Defeat: "Oh, so you believe this to be a victory? Well, I'll remind you what you have just done here today. You have destroyed the British Empire, and with it, ripped the carpet from the floorboards of this earth."
United Kingdom (Churchill)
The United Kingdom has the potential to be a powerful late-game Domination Civ. Pledge to Protect at least 10 City-States for a large Production boost towards Naval and Air Units. This is useful in the early game for making Cargo Ships and Triremes to protect them. The Production from Maritime Buildings is a minor encouragement to invest in them earlier. Assemble a fleet of Frigates after Navigation - you can use these to start world conquest, or wait until Replaceable Parts to upgrade them to Dreadnoughts. Once in the Modern Era, your Production from Pledges affects Air Units too, build plenty of Bombers with some hardy Spitfires for anti-Air support. Cheap, powerful Battleships, Submarines and Bombers ought to be enough to civilise the world - just make sure you have plenty of Oil.
