The temptation became too much. I had to draw it. England and his children.
It ended up looking like they’re in school, but they’re supposed to be at home doing homework. Yes, England is about to smack America in the back of the head.
Australia was a very naughty child, and England ended up sending him away, forcing him to learn to take care of himself. And it worked. Today Australia is a well adjusted man whom most people like.
America was a bit of a trouble maker too, but not as bad as Australia. Well, that was until he decided that he wanted to move out sooner than England would have liked.
Canada was adopted from France, and turned out to be one of the most polite and easy children England ever had under his care.
EDIT: Places like India and such weren’t so much England's children as his servants.

Stop reminding us that we're adopted DX

Making Canada adopted makes so much sense. We do model most things after them, even if we are occasionally ashamed at what he's known globally for. But America has that brotherly potential in him.

Australia moved out cause he wanted to, not cause England told him to. He's a free spirit maaaan

Most Australians I know jokingly thank England for sending them there to now one of the nicest countries in the world haha.

Canada, you will become that man's hat someday. Walk away while you still can.

Another way of looking at it from a sort of hindsight perspective is that Canada is the child of France and Britain. However, Britain only got guardianship over a custody lawsuit (The French and Indian War(in the US)/Intercontinental war' #
' (in Canada). This is largely based on the fact that Canada can't decide whether it's French or English.

BritishVIking, if Texas had over half the geographic area of the US, instead of just 7%, and over 80% of the population, instead of just 8%, then we might. England has dominated the UK in a way Texas has never managed to do in the US (although not from lack of trying), politically, demographically, economically, and in every other way. Yes, technically those countries would be the children of the UK, not England, but it's a pretty quibbling point for a comic, where one by necessity need to over-simplify things. That is especially true, since this comic is more about perception than reality, and the perception is more that the colonies were of England than of the UK. One can debate its accuracy, but that is reality. Plus, the UK (or listing the components) is awkward, linguistically, than using England.
Ironically, you missed Northern Ireland in your parts. Yes, Ireland didn't join the UK until after all three of the colonies were originally founded, but before two of them were independent, and before Canada was consolidated into one British holding. And actually the US was colonized before Scotland joined Great Britain (although after Wales), as it was then called. Complicated? Of course. That's my point. You're oversimplifying as much as the comic is, so why are you so angry? You want to quibble about technicalities, but yet are guilty of ignoring other technicalities. Let her call it England, it's close enough...
