A fairly small continent to the west of Asia
, and the only one whose first and last letters start with a vowel other than 'A'. Where most of the 'classy' (or bloody) civilizations started and known for countries with colourful histories like England
etc. A good percent of Americans hate the Europeans and the most Europeans (ever polite) have made a big deal over reciprocating these feelings a million times over and hating the Americans back. The Americans who like Europe have something coming to them still have something coming to them because a good percentage of the Europeans hate you anyway.
