This can be a tricky question because Great Britain is an island east of Ireland which is made up of 3 countries England Wales Scotland However the term Great Britain has been used unofficially to refer to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which makes this unofficial title technically incorrect. This is because the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland comprises 4 countries and over 100 separate islands and island groups. These 4 countries are England Scotland Wales Republic of Northern Ireland So to answer your question correctly Great Britain is an island comprising the 3 countries England, Scotland and Wales, however the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland comprises the above 3 plus the Republic of Northern Ireland. more

The 4 countries that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain are England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

3 'countries' England, Scotland and Wales make up Great Britain. Thats the big island in the British Isles - which includes Ireland, the Isle of Man and all the other islands around the coast. Technically you could call someone from Ireland 'British' as they are from the British Isles, but that term is usually only used for those from Great Britain. more

The answer is Zero! "Great Britain is no longer a country, but simply an island in the United Kingdom. Politically, "Great Britain" describes the combination of England, Scotland, and Wales, and therefore includes a number of outlying islands such as the Isle of Wight, Anglesey, the Isles of Scilly, the Hebrides, and the island groups of Orkney and Shetland, but does not include the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands. more

Three, though these countries are not technically independent countries or even autonomus regions, simply land designations: England, Scotland, and Wales. Some of my esteemed colleagues seem to be confusing Great Britain with the United Kingdom, formally known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Since Northern Ireland is geographically NOT part of the island known as Great Britain, it is not part of Great Britain per se. more
