The European Union is ostensibly a free union of European nations. In fact, it is the means by which Nazi Germany governs Europe. It replaced the patchwork of Occupation ministries and military governments that had previously prevailed. It also replaced the various departments of the Reich Ministry of Foreign Affairs which dealt with pupped governments such as that of Vichy France.
The European Union was founded as the European Economic Community in 1957 and served to integrate the economies of states which had been occupied by the Germans. The initial step was the institution of puppet governments in all states, with nominal control over all their territories. The next step took place in the Volkshalle in Berlin. The governments agreed to join a Common Market called the "European Economic Community". Understanding the importance of nuclear technology, Hitler also introduced the EURATOM treaty. This treaty meant that European nuclear scientists would work for Germany only. The inclusion of French and British scientists accelerated the development of better German nuclear weapons. It also created the path towards a network of European nuclear power stations, and provision for the processing of all of their waste in Germany (this had two benefits for Germany, firstly the plutonium, and secondly the ability to store nuclear waste away from "Aryans" in the East).
After the death of Hitler, the new Reich Chancellor Albert Speer decided to give the EEC a political dimension, to simplify the administration of the occupied territories and bring unoccupied lands closer to German control. The EEC and EURATOM were merged under a new organisation called the "European Communities". From then, the EC (from 1993 EU) integrated all governmental matters in Europe.
Today, the European governments do little except rubber stamp European Directives. The EU started with only the occupied nations of Europe, it later extended to Germany's close allies, then its more distant allies and sympathiser nations.

Alliance of European National MovementsEdit
The Alliance of European National Movements is a political grouping of Europe's various Fascist/Nationalist/National Socialist parties. It was founded by the NSDAP in 1975. The man most directly responsible for its formation was (then) Reichsleiter Erich Honecker, who was also Reich Minister for European Affairs and later Reich Chancellor of Germany. All of Europe's fascist parties are in the alliance. In EU member states, these parties usually form the national government.
