* UsefulNotes/{{Britain}} -- properly, the United Kingdom -- see UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem. Joined in 1972. They wanted to join earlier, but France (specifically [[UsefulNotes/CharlesDeGaulle Charles de Gaulle]]) put the kibosh on that, one excuse being that Britain wasn't a part of Europe. [[FrenchJerk Twice]]. Known for being HeterosexualLifePartners with America and its former colonies (including a couple of minor wars they both fought in), [[ASpotOfTea tea]] and for possessing the largest [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire empire]] ever. Has quite easily the most [[UsefulNotes/WithEuropeButNotOFIt antagonistic relationship]] with the Union due to its status as an island nation and its pride for the many contributions its people have given the world such as [[UsefulNotes/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]], among other things. In 2016, it held a referendum on whether it would leave the EU. Due to how passionate many are on either side of the issue, it will be [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment best]] if the issue is not discussed further. For the record, LEAVE won, 52% to 48%. Cue OhCrap from the stock markets, Brussels, and a lot of British business. The formal exit process was initiated by the British government on 29 March 2017 and will come into force exactly two years from that date, barring a number of eventualities which are all seen as highly unlikely.

* UsefulNotes/TheCzechRepublic -- also a 2004 entry. Formerly CommieLand, when it was part of Czechoslovakia. Prefers to think of itself as "Central Europe" than "Eastern Europe". Literary greats Creator/FranzKafka, [[TheUnbearableLightnessOfBeing Milan Kundera]], and Václav Havel (who became the country's first president) are from here, although Kafka might have looked at you funny if you called him Czech (he was a German-speaking Jew). Mostly famous for its beautiful capital, Prague.

It should be noted that many aspects of a united Europe actually have little or nothing to do with the European Union itself. There are several dozen organizations and treaties that unite European countries in some way or another. While many of these are connected to the EU, like the European currency, the free trade area, Schengen area and customs union, some like the [[UsefulNotes/{{ESA}} European Space Agency]] or [[EurovisionSongContest Eurovision]] and [[UsefulNotes/EuroFooty UEFA]] are not affiliated with the EU at all. They all have different sets of members and keep expanding and changing all the time, so it can be hard to keep track of who is part of what at any given moment. The main force which holds the confederation tight together is the reliance on an European budget which can provide funding for what is needed in member states' large-scale projects, according to a very complex and convoluted regulation system.

Scotland wanted to have this status if it decided to formally become a separate country from the rest of the UK in 2014, but the EU wasn't very positive about them automatically having said status, and it has become a moot point since the referendum ended with a narrow victory for the "No" camp.

camp. However, following the Brexit vote (in which Scotland voted to remain in the EU while England and Wales voted to leave) there has been some clamoring from both Scottish [=MEPs=] and the Scottish government to either be admitted to the EU as a sovereign nation following British withdrawal or to get a say (and possible veto) in any negotiations about a British withdrawal from the EU.
