Europa (ew-roe'-pə, juˈroʊpə; Greek Ευρώπη; listen) is one of the largest regions in NationStates, with just over 250 to 300 nations to its name (and growing every single day). As a region Europa offers hospitality to any form of government, whether kingdoms, democracies, empires, or disputed territories. The region has both an impressive role-play department, and an active government as well.

There is no discrimination or rejection from the region without a significant reason. One of the only rules about acceptance into the region is regarding membership of invader regions, as Europa is vehemently against invading for no reason, although she does have a reasonable military force to defend her and her allies. Together with an active founder and delegate, this region is quite the stronghold of democracy, and a ideal region for anyone who is looking for a great time.

No one knows the exact date on which the region was created. The founder recalls that he came across the region when it had only one nation left, with no founder or delegate. When this nation ceased to exist, the region was refounded by The Europa Empire. This happened somewhere at the end of december 2003.

Nations trickled in by themselves and soon there were five of them. The founder started sending out recruitment telegrams and the region grew, raising the number to ten. The numbers went up and down for quite a while. During these first months of 2004, Orioni chose Europa as a home and replaced Freedomistic Peoples as the delegate.

May 9th was an important day for the region: the forum was created. It started with a blue-and-orange skin. At that time there were about 20 nations in Europa. On the last day of may that number had risen to 88 and this explosive growth continued: 125 at the end of July, 150 mid-August, and the 200th nation arrived on October the 8th. By the end of 2004, Europa was home to about 250 nations, making it one of the largest player-created regions in NationStates.

In 2005 the region shrunk again to about 225 nations, but the forums were full of activity. Numerous embassies were established, and experienced players from other region joined our ranks. By the end of 2005, thanks to a great effort by some honorable senators, Europa again knew a steady growth.

At the beginning of our third year 2006, the region was met with great challenges. With the first official senate elections, the region allowed even more democracy then there already was. More new members joined, attracted by the extraordinary role-playing..
