England is just England, a small country on the island of Britain.

Americans often use England, Britain, Great Britain, and United Kingdom all interchangeably. However, Britain is the island upon which England stands, along with Wales and Scotland. Great Britain refers to the the island of Britain or to the combined countries of England, Scotland and Wales. United Kingdom refers to the fact that a single king or queen is regent over England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland; the full term is United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
