I quoted some sections of the book "Tragedy of the Korosko" by Arthur Conan Doyle on my site a while back. The pertinent sections were all about the thankless, hated task of being the guys that the world turns to when they need their problems fixed, the guys everyone expects to deal with trouble spots and bring prosperity and liberty to the darkest parts of the planet.

Back then, of course, it was the British Empire.
