List of Countries in Europe

Europe

Europe is marked by a great density of independent territories, fruit of the historical relations of disputes by the power.

The Europe is a continent located in three different hemispheres: the Northern, Western and Eastern. It is located to the west of Asia, to the North of Africa, to the east of the Atlantic Ocean and to the south of the Arctic Ocean. The societies that inhabited this continent were the main responsible for the colonization of most of the other territories of the planet, being therefore denominated like “center of the world”, although, in cartographic terms, this expression is considered erroneous.

Europe has a total of 50 countries, two of which are also part of Asia: Turkey and Russia. Despite this large number of countries, its area is small, with about 10,180.00 km². If we do not count on Russia, where most of its territory is located in Asia, its space decreases to a smaller area than Brazil, yet has many more countries than Brazil has in states.

This great concentration of small territories is explained by the historical relations of instability that marked the region. As it was in Europe itself that the idea of the modern state was first established, it was there also that the different nations first began their struggles for the constitution of their own states. This struggle, it is worth remembering, is still present in many places, especially Spain, where Catalans, Basques, Navarrese and other peoples seek to form their own countries, which would further increase the number of States in this continent.

In spite of this widespread fragmentation, Europe has, curiously enough, an opposite effect of integration thanks to the formation and expansion of the European Union. This economic bloc, in addition to being responsible for the use of the euro in most of its member countries, has virtually eliminated the borders between its territories, although this has caused reactions in parts of the population, which are becoming increasingly embedded in Xenophobic thoughts (of aversion to foreigners).

The European population, in recent data, is approximately 740 million inhabitants. Demographically, the continent is characterized by internal migratory flows (thanks to the existence of the European Union) and, mainly, external ones, with many foreigners coming from underdeveloped or developing countries. On the other hand, the average age in the population has been rising significantly, thanks to the extremely low birth and death rates recorded over the last 20 years.

The hydrography of Europe is marked by the presence of some important rivers, such as the Danube, the Rhine, the Volga, the Seine, the Elbe, the Tagus and many others. The types of vegetation exist are the Tundra, the Boreal Forest, the Temperate Forest, the Steppes and the Mediterranean Vegetation.

Economically, Europe, after the end of World War II, began a process of recovery, again relying on very strong international powers, especially Germany, the United Kingdom and France. In addition, the world’s most advanced economic bloc, the European Union, provides greater trade integration within the continent. Despite this, these nations have suffered intensely from a strong economic crisis, responsible for the exponential increase in the rates of misery and unemployment, whose effects can still be felt nowadays.

Despite the narrow territorial dimensions, Europe is one of the most important continents in the world, because it is in it that the values that are currently spread throughout the world via Globalization have been constituted. In addition, despite the strengthening in the last decades of the United States, Japan and the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India and China), Europe configures itself with one of the protagonists in the international Geopolitics and Economy.
