The word Anglosphere describes a group of anglophone (English-speaking) nations which share historical, political, and cultural characteristics rooted in or attributed to the historical experience of the United Kingdom. The Anglosphere includes those former colonies and dominions of the UK where English is the main language and Christianity is the main religion.

The term is usually attributed to science fiction writer Neal Stephenson, used in his 1995 novel The Diamond Age.
