Here we have a image of Europe or more specifically the European Union (EU). The EU is an economic and political Union with at the moment 28 memeber states, soon to be 27 with the United Kingdom about to leave.

For a very good explanation of this go to the Wikipedia page, go here for a great EU Map and this has a great map of Europe. Go here if you want to get a great Map of Europe Mug
