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.

Beginning in 1993, a series of treaties led to the expansion of the European Union as a geopolitical organization comprising more than 25 countries.
