Commonwealth

 Here is the definition of Commonwealth as per Wikipedia "Commonwealth is a Traditional English term for a political community. Historically it has sometimes been synonymous with republicanism."

In my Words "Commonwealth is a group of countries and states which are directly or indirectly ruled by the British government and British Army."
In the present time, a group of these countries is Commonwealth. In earlier centuries, Britain is the most powerful country of the world by his army power. And he ruled on many countries in 15th to 19th centuries. And in present time almost all countries are independent and these countries are now a democracy.

There are 53 countries which are known by the name of commonwealth countries. And the all countries are ruled by the British umpire. In present time, many countries have more power and growth than Britain.
