More recently, the nation was involved in both World Wars, and has an arsenal of nuclear weapons. Politically, the most notable event of recent times is the 2016 referendum which decided that the United Kingdom would leave the European Union. The United Kingdom’s geography is rather varied; from flat plains in the east to a generally hilly landscape in much of centre, and rugged fells and mountains in the north. the UK’s economy is highly centred on its service sector; much of its past manufacturing strength has been diminished by global competitors. However, the automotive industry remains significant, as does aerospace production. Culturally, the United Kingdom is unique and has been globally influential; various sports such as football originated in the country, while literary figures such as William Shakespeare have had immeasurable impacts on what is now a global language.
