The European Union (EU) is a political and economic union of 28 member states that are located primarily in Europe. It has an area of 4,475,757 km2 (1,728,099 sq mi) and an estimated population of about 513 million. The EU has developed an internal single market through a standardised system of laws that apply in all member states in those matters, and only those matters, where members have agreed to act as one. EU policies aim to ensure the free movement of people, goods, services and capital within the internal market, enact legislation in justice and home affairs and maintain common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries and regional development. For travel within the Schengen Area, passport controls have been abolished. A monetary union was established in 1999 and came into full force in 2002 and is composed of 19 EU member states which use the euro currency.
The EU and European citizenship were established when the Maastricht Treaty came into force in 1993. The EU traces its origins to the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) and the European Economic Community (EEC), established, respectively, by the 1951 Treaty of Paris and 1957 Treaty of Rome. The original members of what came to be known as the European Communities were the Inner Six: Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and West Germany. The Communities and its successors have grown in size by the accession of new member states and in power by the addition of policy areas to its remit. The latest major amendment to the constitutional basis of the EU, the Treaty of Lisbon, came into force in 2009.

Covering 7.3% of the world population, the EU in 2017 generated a nominal gross domestic product (GDP) of 19.670 trillion US dollars, constituting approximately 24.6% of global nominal GDP. Additionally, all 28 EU countries have a very high Human Development Index, according to the United Nations Development Programme. In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Through the Common Foreign and Security Policy, the EU has developed a role in external relations and defence. The union maintains permanent diplomatic missions throughout the world and represents itself at the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the G7 and the G20. Because of its global influence, the European Union has been described as an emerging superpower.

EU is the European Union, a cooperation between most European countries.

It was originally founded after WWII as a peace initiative. The idea was that with close cooperation between countries, military conflicts would be made impossible.
The EU had 15 member states before 2004.

European Union.
An immoral, corrupt and socially corrosive construct. Its origins lie in a deep and bitter mistrust of accountable democracy. Its aim is the destruction of the nation state. The terrible price the world is already paying for this project can be seen in the decimation of fish stocks due to the lunacy of the common fisheries policy, the ruination of developing world economies by EU trade tarifs, and the insanity of the common agricultural policy. "The Project" now exists as an answer to a question that is no longer being asked. Instead it continues, merely to provide a sinecure for every third rate politico and careerist bureaucrat who fancies an easy life with high earnings, a big fat pension and no chance of ever being held accountable for their actions.

EU: see also underperforming, unaccountable, unelected, unwanted and unsustainable.
