Just to be annoying. The 13 colonies that made up the area the British Empire controlled in North America was never part of Britain. As Britain is the name of the island England, Scotland and Wales is on. 

^this is one of the reasons we called it off between us, we didn't even know who you were any more

:) ... I love to be annoying as well :) ... Britain in this content is not a full name of the island, but rather a widely accepted short name for the British Empire ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Empire )

To be fair though it was operated by the British, and of course infamously taxed.

They was paying less tax in the 13 colonies than the people in the UK was paying. The American colonist paid roughly just under 2 shillings per annum in tax. As the average Briton paid 26 shillings and four pence per annum. It cost Britain more to send ship and soldiers there to protect the 13 colonies from the French and fight the Indian war that would happen now and then, than they was making. Also with the strain of the 7 years war costing Britain lots of money. Also the wars in India fighting the Mughal Empire who was getting help from the French. Who we was also fighting, along with Russia, Spain, Sweden and Austria (seven years war).
