Re: not the only country to have developed and scrapped an orbital launch system.

Perhaps "developed and scrapped, without an intention for any replacement", then?

More than that. UK just shot a single successful launch - Prospero into orbit, with a radio and a tape loop just to test the launch system.

Totally incomparable with Apollo and the Shuttle program, which conducted a series of launches to useful space payload missions over a number of years, or in the case of shuttle decades.
