Alternate Future EU Map by Muzik-Maniac Alternate Future EU Map by Muzik-Maniac
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.

Key:
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! :)

Neat map. But the EU itself ~having~ a future is looking like alternate history at this point.

I wonder now that the EF now has Turkey, will they re-name Istanbul, Neo-Constantinople?

Who cares if Morocco is not in Europe. French Guyana is in South America and is in the EU, being a technically a province of France, and yes they do use the Euro. Iceland is not really in Europe, is it? You can argue that Turkey is partly in Europe, and as far as I am concerned very welcome to lots of very industrious and highly developed nice Turkish people. But Georgia, Armenia? No not in Europe. Mind you I welcome them. And Tunisia. And in fact pretty much all of northern Africa. Why stop there? Keep adding countries. Nothing like economics for countries to change their human rights policies, and become proper functioning democracies. Carrot and stick. What about Russia. Surely they deserve to be part of the big project? They do not want to join us yet, but would not all of us feel much happier as a globe spanning union of countries? And after having lots of holidays over here will not loads of Russians want to be part of that same project?

How is that Morocco is in the EU, and yet it is not in Europe? I do support Turkey becoming a EU member in the future, Turkey has good tourism and will help EU by this. Wouldn't Scotland if votes to leave the UK join the EU?
I would have to say Serbia will not be allowed to join EU, since they genocide the Albanians in Kosovo. 
But I would agree of Kosovo getting EU membership rather or not Spain, Slovakia and Greece likes it or not.

That my opinion for Kosovo.

Hm, Turkey? No thanks! They don't belong to Europe, so why the fuck should they join, they are completely different nation! .... I guess this never happens, since everybody in the EU has been against this so far ... and it's gonna remain so I think.

Part of Turkey is in Europe you know. It seams to me that it's the Greeks that are the most apposed to Turkeys entry into the Union & not "everyone" as you say. It seams that the parties that are most apposed to Turkeys entry are apposed based on racist Ideas & not geographical or Governmental Issues.

Are you kidding? The Turks have created the only successful democracy in the Muslim world. Islamic Fundamentals burn effigies of their Founding father Mustafa Kemal Atatürk because he had the audacity to build a Turkish democracy. Notice a Democratic them here?

Yeah that was a good wikipedia research ;)
calm down, the EU wont exist much longer than the next few years ... in times of financial crisis this discussion is actually pointless.

Not Wikipedia, actually it was several collage level geography & political science classes but the result is the same.:shrug: I think the EU is stronger than the crisis but we shall see.

Um where are you from... Your profile says Germany. Ya your country has absolutely NO room to talk about treating ethnic minority well (IE Jews & Turks etc.). Not any more than my country does (IE blacks). More than that religious based & thus Muslim based political parties were banned In Turkey until just recently. Do you know anything about Turkey, or is everything you about it purely hearsay? I thought us Americans were supposed to be the uninformed ones, but you sir take the cake!!!

No wonder. It's just the old cliche of those countries being in the EU, I guess.
