The United European Republic is a nation formed as a successor of the EU. It is also known as the European United Republic, or EUR. The nation consists of all of Europe excluding the British Isles and the Semi-independent puppet of Ireland (which owns the whole island of Ireland). The EUR was formed in 2012 and brought about the end of the UK, with England, Scotland and Wales being formed and Ireland annexing the north. Scotland is not a part of the EUR but is a part of the Association of European Nations (consisting of Scotland, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Ukraine). The Association's nations are considered allies or even puppets of the united Europe. Wales in it's own part of the Association, known as the Semi-Associated League (or SAL). England is not associated with the EUR at all and is completely independent. Russia has stated it will join the SAL by 2025.
