          Commonwealth leaders are meeting in London. Here are seven things about this club of nations that you might not know.


          1- It’s home to almost one-third of the world’s population


          About 2.4 billion people - out of 7.4 billion globally - live in the Commonwealth’s 53 countries. And most of them are under the age of 30.


          2 - Some members were never part of the British Empire


          Rwanda and Mozambique became members in 2009 and 1995 respectively, and neither has a British colonial past or constitutional link.


          3 - The Queen is head of state in only 16 of the countries


          Most of the Commonwealth states are republics and six - Lesotho, Swaziland, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia, Samoa and Tonga - have their own monarch.


          4- It’s rather big


          The Commonwealth makes up a quarter of the world’s land mass.


          The giant of the group is Canada, the world’s second largest country. India and Australia are huge too. But many of the states are small - like the Pacific island nations of Nauru, Samoa, Tuvalu and Vanuatu, and Dominica and Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean.


          5- It changed its name


          The modern Commonwealth was formed in 1949, after "British" was dropped from the name and allegiance to the Crown was removed from its statute. Only two people have been head of the organisation - King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II. But it’s not a hereditary role, although the Prince of Wales is widely expected to take it up when he becomes king.

          當“英國的”從該名字中被刪除并且對王室的效忠被從其法規中刪除之后,現代英聯邦于1949年成立。只有兩個人是該組織的負責人 - 喬治六世國王和伊麗莎白女王二世。但這不是一個世襲的角色,雖然普遍猜測認為,當威爾斯王子成為國王后,他會接管負責人角色。

          6- The UK still has the biggest Commonwealth economy… just

          6 -英國仍然是英聯邦的最大經濟體......只不過

          India could claim number one spot soon - possibly as early as this year.


          The combined GDP of the 53 countries is USD 10tn. That’s nearly as big as China’s (USD 11tn) but some way behind that of the United States, on USD 19tn .


          7- There’s more than one commonwealth


          Don’t forget the International Organisation of La Francophonie - a group of French-speaking countries. And there’s the Commonwealth of Independent States, which was set up in 1991 by former members of the Soviet Union.

          不要忘記法語國家組織La Francophonie - 一個說法語的國家組合。獨立國家聯邦也存在,這是由前蘇聯成員于1991年成立的。
