hey, I'm not sure about this but should United Kingdom, Great Britain (Britain), England be handled separately ? I don't know either what the Japanese goes by.
So far Spanish and Catalan say England; French, Italian, Polish and English stand with Great-Britain or Britain; and Chinese ones have United Kingdom.

Both 英国 and イギリス refer to the United Kingdom (the state).

I believe, that the term “Britain” may actually refer to either the state of the United Kingdom (of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) or the island of Great Britain.

See for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britain

Britain refers to the island. Northern Ireland is not located in Britain but in Ireland which is yet another very distinct island if you look on a map... Hence the difference between the UK and Britain.
