* ''[[VideoGame/{{Hearts of Iron 2}} Hearts of Iron 2]]'' mod modern day scenario has an event where the EU unites to one country as well... it also becomes a hyperpower the moment that happens since you get way more production/resources/manpower/research than anyone else...

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Europe is usually said to have two different Mega Cities: Brit Cit and Euro Cit.[[note]]Ireland could also be counted as a separate entity, but that's a whole 'nother story: [[TheThemeParkVersion it's literally a giant theme park]].[[/note]] So, the Britons are still independent, but the rest of the continent is implied to be unified in one polity.

* One of the main factions in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer2013'', with their appearance and [[ACommanderIsYou game-play style]] making them a CaptainErsatz of the first game's [[YanksWithTanks USA faction]], after [[CulturalCringe fan hatred]] saw the U.S. getting terrorized and retreating from Europe to secure the home-front in the first game's expansion pack.

Whether this is destined to be TruthInTelevision or not, as well as whether it ''ought'' to be, depends on who you ask. It remains a ''very'' contentious issue on both sides. Let's just say that the EU isn't especially popular in the UK (especially considering that the country has experienced [[http://archive.is/8VLSP an economic boom]] since the Brexit vote[[note]]YMMV on this, depending on who you ask, consdidering that the referendum result in favour of leaving was a marginal win by 52:48 for the anti-EU faction, and factoring in that some UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers with an agenda of their own are talking up slight indicators of a boom to justify their somewhat fervent pro-Brexit positions, combined with very real and noticeable drops in the value of the pound, leaves the future a lot more uncertain[[/note]]) or present-day Greece, and everywhere else the mention of it being a good/bad thing can spark a rather fierce argument down at the pub if you aren't careful. RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement may well apply.

Especially since Brexit hasn't actually ''happened'' yet, it's just been agreed to do it. It's far to early to tell what the economic impact will be once the split is actually finalized, especially since the exact details (as in, whether the EU will be willing to negotiate favorable trade deals with the UK or attempt to punish them for leaving via heavy tariffs) are still under negotiation, and there's the additional prospect that Scotland (which voted 62:38 in favor of remaining in the EU, without even a single town or county having an anti-EU majority, and already had a strong anti-UK nationalist faction) might declare independence in order to rejoin the EU and take most of the UK's oil with them.[[/note]]) or present-day Greece, and everywhere else the mention of it being a good/bad thing can spark a rather fierce argument down at the pub if you aren't careful.

The major conflict in the OVA series is between the United Republic of Europia (which is most of Western and Central Europe with its capital in Paris) vs. Euro Britannia, which remains loyal to the Holy Britannian Empire (consisting mainly of Eastern Europe and Russia, with its capital in St. Petersburg). The major battles in the series take place in Poland and Belarus, which is the front line of the European theater of war.

* WhiteWolf's ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' RPG, though set in the ''present day'', actually has EU Armed Forces, which the EU does not have although whether it should remains a matter of discussion. In all fairness, said EU Armed Forces were in a story in which the end of the world was in full swing and it is entirely possible that such a situation might cause a united response from Europe.

* A mod for ''EuropaUniversalis 3'' allows you to create the European Union by taking control of the capitals of the EU as it is right now (that is, Lisbon, Madrid, London, Paris, Rome, Berlin...). Uniting Europe is also a [[SelfImposedChallenge common goal for veteran players]].
