I don't exactly see the areas in Britain as Kingdoms, more like counties. But WAIT! America has those! Meh, same reasons for both sides, Combined Areas and a single ruler.

Apart from South America, I don't see any other country in the world that shares the same name. :U

It's called America as a whole, don't forget. Or Torndao Alley. =I
