In 1707, Great Britain and Wales joined Scotland under one government. This nation was called Great Britain. Its people were the British. By the mid-1700's, Great Britain had 13 colonies in North America.
There were three regions within the colonies: the New England Colonies, the Middle Colonies, and the Southern Colonies. The regions had distinct geographic features, including land forms, natural resources, and climate. Their economies were based on local products and services. An economy is the way in which people use resources to produce, sell, or trade goods and services to meet their needs and wants. Some colonies had governments that were more democratic than others.
