Comprising 47 countries, islands, and other territories, Europe is the world's sixth-largest continent and — with more than 700 million inhabitants — home to approximately 12% of the total global population. Europe is bordered by numerous bodies of water, including the Mediterranean Sea, and is separated from Asia by the Caspian and Black Seas and Russia's Ural Mountains. Beginning in 1993, a series of treaties led to the expansion of the European Union as a geopolitical organization comprising more than 25 countries.
