If any single nation can be said to have ushered in the modern age, then the Kingdom of Britannia is surely it. It was here, in the mid-seventeenth century that the first modern industrialisation began; spurred on, as with so many other advances, by the throes of a war. It was here, also, that ships were first built of iron, that the steam engine was first perfected; that the railway was pioneered. Almost every technological advance that the world now takes for granted has its root somewhere in Britannia’s recent history.
