Yeah, I have a coordinate system that maps an entire planet with the surface area around the same as the area of the United States.

Real world precision is actually infinite.... I assume that you mean centimeters then, since players moving in meter jumps would look a little weird. Well... cant see it being done with one variable. Oh Im sure theres a way, but I expect you''ll have to find a way to get extra space by combining two floats or something. OK I got no idea how, but thats probrably the sort of thing Id look at.

Alternatively, couldnt you section the globe into sectors, and store the players current sector, and their relative position in that sector

Oops just realised that you actually said just the UK... ah well, I still like the sector idea
