Just a quick little (Keep in mind ASB) fantasy map i decided to do. And so just as a warning, i gave little thought on the exact details... lol
It takes place during the aftermath of a huge economic collapse, around 2040, and this basically culminates into a 20th Century Great Depression. This map is a snapshot of its size during the initial years of the recovery period.
Dark Blue: The European Union (as of 2050)
Medium Blue: potential EU membership candidates
Light blue: EU administrated Territory
The details I'll post latter, but to try and answer the most apparent potential questions:
1) The United Kingdom did vote to successfully leave the European Union upon a decent recovery from the economic crash. Mainly due in part to their confidence in the mainland European economic community being shaken.
2) If anyone pays attention to the flag, and counts the additions to the actual map, no I am not one short (Last time i counted) on purpose. Germany and Austria, in light of the massive economic downturn, merged! (yah yah, a little bit of a personal cliché, and unfeasible, but eh).
3)Yes, that is the Union State between the Russian Federation and Belarus.
4)No, at this point in time it is not a single political body, merely an economic union like today, although its on the fast track to political union.
Other than that, and until i update the info, feel free to ask questions, and I'm open to Input!
