A thought that occured to me listening to the radio yesterday. They were debating if there should be a British national identity card, like in other countries. Now those against said it would be a move towards totalitarianism, where as those for it pointed towards usefulness at home and abroad, as well as a convenient nationally recognized form of ID for those who don't have a drivers licence or passport.

The visual aspects naturally include a photograph along with the national flag and the variant royal coat of arms used by the government.
The back of the card could look like this:
