Since the designation of lands as continents is arbitrary, the territorial extent of Europe is largely a cultural, economic and political designation rather than a geographical one. Europe's biggest country with its largest population is UsefulNotes/{{Russia}}, which is a transcontinental state that extends from Eastern Europe all the way across North Asia to the Pacific Coast where it shares land and sea borders with Japan, China, North Korea and the United States of America. UsefulNotes/{{Turkey}} is another transcontinental state that culturally and historically has played a major role in Europe and Asia, especially in Southern Europe and Western Asia, but for cultural, nationalistic and religious reasons is generally not considered European. There are also other states that are usually considered European for cultural rather than geographical reasons (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Cyprus and Armenia), despite being in the case of the latter two geographically entirely Asian. Furthermore, there is no true continental divide between Europe and Asia (hence the "Eurasian tectonic plate"), and some even regard Europe as an Asian subcontinent with delusions of grandeur. What defines Europe is the common interconnected intricate history, where various Kingdoms and Empires were at various times colonized, conquered, occupied and settled by one or another, a common experience that they then exported to the rest of the planet. So how one defines Europe is likely to speak one's own political and social views -- for example, ''The Iron Man'' includes the line "all the countries of Europe can fit easily into Australia", which may confuse many modern readers unless they know that, to Ted Hughes, "Europe" stopped at the UsefulNotes/IronCurtain -- as much as it is a cold geographical assessment. Even areas whose "Europeanness" are unambiguous to non-Europeans, such as the [[UsefulNotes/WithEuropeButNotOfIt British Isles]], Scandinavia, Russia west of the Urals, the Caucasus, etc -- are regarded by its own residents as being apart or different from the continent. Europe is also sometimes merged with UsefulNotes/{{Asia}} as Eurasia or UsefulNotes/{{Africa}} and Asia as Afro-Eurasia, which makes geographical sense but is not quite acceptable politically.

The countries below go by the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations' definitions of the regions[[note]]Which country belongs to which region in Europe can differ heavily depending on which definition of Europe is being used. For example, Eurovoc's definition of the regions includes Andorra in Western Europe instead of Southern Europe, the British Isles in Western Europe instead of Northern Europe and former Yugoslavia & Albania in Eastern Europe instead of Southern Europe, while The World Factbook's definition includes the British Isles in Western Europe instead of Northern Europe, The Baltics in Eastern Europe instead of Northern Europe, includes Central Europe as it's own region, and splits the Iberian Peninsula and former Yugoslavia (except Slovenia, which is included in Central Europe), Albania & Turkey from the rest of Southern Europe into their own regions, Southwestern Europe and Southeastern Europe respectively, with Romania and Bulgaria also being included in the latter region instead of Eastern Europe[[/note]], which lacks Central Europe (it overlapping with Western, Southern and Eastern Europe and being an ideological region rather than a physical one) and places the countries of it into the regions they overlap with, though Central Europe has it's own page below.

[[UsefulNotes/NorthAmerica North American]] global influence surged as a result of not taking nearly as much damage as Europe and Asia did during the World Wars and having a lot more resources at the time, and North America soon replaced Europe in much of their role worldwide after World War II, with the UsefulNotes/UnitedStates in particular coming into prominence as one of the three Superpowers left after the World Wars, the others being the United Kingdom and [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet Union]]. Europe would finally find long-lasting peace after World War II with the sole exception of UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars, though would spend a lot of that peace [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar split into two halves by the United States and the Soviet Union]], with the US-allied countries forming UsefulNotes/{{NATO}} and the Soviet Union-allied countries forming the UsefulNotes/WarsawPact. The United Kingdom would soon lose it's Superpower status after the Suez Crisis of 1956, and the Soviet Union would later [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp collapse]] in [[Main/TheNineties the 90's]], dissolving the Warsaw Pact, reuniting the two halves of the continent and leaving the United States as the only remaining Superpower in the present. The history of Europe is equal parts glorious and equal parts tragic. Fittingly enough, the name "Europe" is derived from the name of the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology mythical]] [[DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal rape victim]] Europa.
