* AlternateHistory classic ''Literature/ForWantOfANail'' depicts this as a minor detail to its main focus (North America following a failed AmericanRevolution) when the German Empire conquers continental Europe and the Middle East during the Global War.

* The cyberpunk setting ''NeuroSpasta'' has a politically united EU, along with a coalition of Middle-Eastern states and an economic alliance of eastern Pacific nations, as the new world superpowers, having backed the correct form of sustainable energy in the wake of a global ecological catastrophe. The USA, which supported the technology that didn't become standard, has become isolationist and largely irrelevant to the world stage.

* One of the main factions in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals2013'', 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.

A recurring phenomenon in this trope, especially if the creator is British or American, is that [[UsefulNotes/WithEuropeButNotOfIt Britain]] will somehow not be part of a United Europe. [[FridgeLogic Oddly enough]], the very independent and politically neutral Switzerland, as well as Norway (neither of which are even in the EU) rarely get the same treatment. It should come as no surprise therefore that this trope varies depending on who's making the work in question. Another recurring phenomenon is that the capital of the United Europe rarely stays as Brussels, usually moving to Paris or Berlin, probably because audiences can easily recognize these landmark-heavy locations over the less-visited Brussels.

* In [[Fallout]], the European Commonwealth is clearly an analogue to the real world European Union, except it seems to be a much stronger military alliance rather than the Union's focus on economic cooperation.

* ''Franchise/CodeGeass'' has an European Union which was apparently founded after a victorious revolutionary wave swept across the continent that included Britain. In this alternate timeline, Napoleon was a victorious general but there are conflicting versions about his fate. One story says the British royal family had him assassinated as they fled to the still-loyal American colonies, while the Europeans themselves claim that he was executed by his own people in order to prevent him from establishing a dictatorship. The E.U. was also the only one out of the three original superpowers that was democratic.
