I'm not sure if the question is meant seriously, but Anglicanism has
gone through a number of forms, and what it is exactly is a
hotly-debated topic (still).  Nevertheless, the thirty-nine articles
would be a good place to start looking for distinctive features:

http://anglicansonline.org/basics/thirty-nine_articles.html

Among other things, they reject purgatory, papal supremacy and any
service "in a tongue not understanded of the people".   Modern-day
partisans of the Elizabethan Book of Common Prayer may prefer to forget
the last one, but one the whole, Anglican services have been
historically somewhat simpler and more accessible than Roman services.

Cheers,
Se
