The Commonwealth of Nations is, for all intents and purposes, the successor to the British Empire. It comprises over 50 nations across all continents and is a promoter for world peace and prosperity. The head of the Commonwealth is Queen Elizabeth II, which, to apply to be a member, you have to recognize. So, don't expect the USA to be joining anytime soon!
