Sid Meier's Civilization V/England

From StrategyWiki, the video game walkthrough and strategy guide wiki

England is the largest political entity on the islands of Great Britain, having a legendary navy that helped spread their influence across the world. It is led by Elizabeth I, the queen that helped restore the nation after the rule of King Henry VIII. The English civilization likes water, and the more bodies of water the map has, the better they can perform. Its unique units help it dominate sea and land, but can also be used to defend your empire in a peaceful game.
