I was going to suggest Federal Commonwealth of United Kingdoms, but then we'd be sued by the clothing company.
Reminds me of a debate which we had at Party Conference in 1997 when we were thinking of a new name for the Young Conservatives, and eventually decided on the ineffably naff 'Conservative Futures'. I suggested at the time that Future Conservatives United Kingdom would be the most eye-catching in terms of acromymns, but was over-ruled by a lot of young fogeys who think that politics should not be funny.
My other half also once suggested to an Amnesty International beatnik at university - all magic beads and dreadlocks - who was trying to raise money for 'political prisoners' at Guantanamo and elsewhere, that she should establish the "Campaign for Liberation and Integration of Terrorist Organisations and their Rehabilitation Into Society". This, unsurprisingly, was also rejected out of hand. Shame, as they could have printed the most eye-catching t-shirts.
