Commonwealth of Nations (British Commonwealth of Nations)
members who share a common commitment to promoting human rights, democracy and economic development; all members accept the British monarch as the symbolic head of the Commonwealth; all but one, Mozambique, were once associated in some constitutional way with either the former British Empire or with another member country. The association was formerly known as the British Commonwealth of Nations, but today is referred to simply as the Commonwealth. English is the official language of many members of the Commonwealth. About 1.7 billion people live in the 54 independent nations (1/3 of the people on Earth) and the more than 20 dependencies that make up the Commonwealth. Commonwealth members share many customs and traditions as a result of their association with Britain. Many have parliamentary systems of government based on the British and/or American model and their judicial and educational institutions are often similar. Almost all members of the Commonwealth were once ruled by Britain as part of the British Empire. Some of them were largely settled by people of the United Kingdom. Others, such as India and Nigeria, were areas where British administrators governed a large non British population. The Statute of Westminster, enacted by the British Parliament in 1931, officially proclaimed the Commonwealth a free association of self-governing dominions. As such, they became independent states, some of which later formed into independent nations..comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
