The United Kingdom is a west European country.

History[edit | edit source]

Omnics were treated as second-class citizens in the U.K.

Much of modern England was built on the backs of omnic laborers. However, they are denied the basic rights that humans have. King's Row has become a fulcrum of omnic agitation, along with their human sympathizers.[1] Omnics have (or had) to undergo mandatory registration.[2]

The country's crown jewels were stolen by Junkrat and Roadhog.[3]

In light of Overwatch vigilante activities at a museum, Downing Street added its voice to the international condemnation of the unauthorized action.[4]

During the winter holiday season after Overwatch's recall, England was hit with a massive winter snowstorm, creating a white Christmas.[5]
