Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Europe is a continent on Earth, linked to Asia and seperated from Africa by a inland sea.

Countries that make up Europe include...

Europe is mostly continental, with the exception of the United Kingdom which is composed of islands.

Geography

Europe has a temperate to cold climate suitable for humans. Like the rest of the world, Europe also experienced several Ice Ages from the distant past to even the year 5000. (DW: The Ice Warriors, The Talons of Weng-Chiang)

Famous natural beauties in Europe include the Switza, the Rhine, the Danube, and the Black Forest. (MA: Managra)

Politics

Europe was also home to many early Earth empires. These include the Roman Empire, the French Empire, the British Empire, and the Soviet Union.

Europe was involved in both World War I and World War II, both events being inadvertantly caused by the Nemesis statue passing above Earth. (DW: Silver Nemesis) Events in the wars include:

  • The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914 which helped spark the Great War.
  • Adolf Hitler annexed Autria in 1938 to the German Reich.
  • D-Day occurs and the Allies win World War II in 1945.

During the later 21st century, after other wars had been fought, most of Europe was reorganized into the Eurozone and was left only to fight with the United States of America. (EDA: Trading Futures)

By 2118, both Europe (whether it was no longer the "Eurozone" or not is unknown) and America used Africa to grow food for their populations. (NSA: The Art of Destruction)

In 12005, Europe may have been the home of the New Roman Empire. (DW: The End of the World)

Fallout

Up to date as of February 01, 2010
(Redirected to European Commonwealth article)

From The Vault

Destroyed Reichstag in Germany, aftermath of the Resource Wars.

The European Commonwealth is the Fallout universe's equivalent of the real-world European Union, which has integrated into a single state-like entity (although it is not known which European states were its members; the only confirmed member was the United Kingdom).

In 2052, Europe was heavily dependent on oil imports from the petroleum-rich states of the Middle East and responded to rapidly rising oil prices that were damaging its economy with military action, starting the terrible global conflicts that later historians simply lumped together as the Resource Wars.

The outcome of this conflict suggests that unlike today's EU, the European Commonwealth possessed a unified military. Some time after the war ended, as the Middle Eastern oil fields went dry in 2060, the European Commonwealth dissolved into quarreling, bickering nation-states fighting over the last remaining resources on earth.

Contents

Real world European treaties

Real world counterparts to the European Commonwealth that originated during the Cold War era are the various European economic communities:

  • the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC), established by the Treaty of Paris of 1951, was declared to be "a first step in the federation of Europe"; the founding member states of the ECSC included Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands and West Germany.
  • The European Economic Community and the European Atomic Energy Community, established by the Treaty of Rome of 1957 (in the real world the United Kingdom joined these communities only in 1973 (alongside Denmark and Ireland).
  • The Western European Union (WEU), a pan-European military organization established on the basis of the Treaty of Brussels of 1948 (since the Amsterdam Treaty of 1997 a transfer of the WEU's competences to the European Union was introduced, however, officially, the WEU still exists at present).

Borders with the Soviet Union

The Soviet Union in the Fallout world probably had its own sphere of international influence, which very likely was the same as the Warsaw Pact (of 1955) and Comecon (1949) which led to Soviet domination of Eastern and Central Europe. If this domination was replicated in the Fallout world, it could effectively limit the eastern borders of the European Commonwealth (members of the Warsaw Pact included Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and the Soviet Union). However, though it appears that the Soviet Union did not collapse in 1991 in the Fallout world as it did in our own reality, neither did it seem to still present the same danger to the interests of the United States by the late twenty-first century. Instead, the Communist power that was Washington's primary rival for world influence by the year 2077 was the People's Republic of China. As such, the Soviet empire in Eastern Europe may also have collapsed or voluntarily been relinquished by Moscow long before the Resource Wars began. While the Soviet Union may still have existed under a Communist government in 2077, it probably was no longer a government that intended or was capable of threatening the United States and its democratic allies, perhaps because China represented a common enemy.

European weapon manufacturers

  • German weapons manufacturers seen in the Fallout universe include Heckler & Koch and Rheinmetall AG. Gauss weapons were of German design also.
  • Glock, which originated in Austria.
  • FN originated in Belgium.
  • The XL70E3 was developed by the British arms manufacturer Enfield.

European equipment and weaponry

Appearances

The European Commonwealth is mentioned only in the Fallout intro and the Fallout Bible. Products from European manufacturers appear in nearly all Fallout games except Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

The concept for a pre-Fallout "Resource Wars" game is set in a collapsing Europe (during the European Commonwealth's invasion of the Middle East) and is one of the games that J.E. Sawyer would like to make if he could do any game, regardless of money and developing time[1].

GTA

Up to date as of February 09, 2010

From Grand Theft Wiki

The flag representing the European Union

Europe is one of the seven traditional continents of the Earth. The true home of Grand Theft Auto is in Europe, or more specifically in Scotland, part of the United Kingdom. However, the games are always released first in North America, probably due to the larger number of people expected to buy the games there, as well as it being the home country of Rockstar Games.

One European country noted for it's censorship of the GTA series is Germany. Since Grand Theft Auto III, a number of changes have been made to the games. Some of these include the removal of blood, weapons, prostitutes, and even missions.

Europe is home to a number of video game rating systems, each of them giving varied ratings to GTA games. While these countries use the PEGI system, their own ratings boards still exist, and it would appear that some games are still rated by them for whatever reason. They include the following:

  • BBFC - Used in the United Kingdom
  • PEGI - Used in nearly 30 European countries
  • ELSPA - The former British ratings board
  • USK - Used in Germany
  • SELL - Used in France
  • aDeSe - Used in Spain
  • VET/SFB - Used in Finland
  • DJCTQ - Used in Portugal, and more recently Brazil.

There is more information available on this subject at Europe on the English-language Wikipedia.
Satellite image of Europe.
Europe is one of the seven traditional continents of Earth. Being the western-most peninsula of Eurasia, it is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, to the southeast by the Caucasus Mountains, the Black Sea and the waterways connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. To the east, Europe is generally divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, and by the Caspian Sea.
Europe in the 2000s
Eurasia in the 2000s

Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometres (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth's surface. Of Europe's 48 countries, Russia is the largest by both area and population, while the Vatican is the smallest. Europe is the third most populous continent after Asia and Africa with a population of 710,000,000 or about 11% of the world's population. However, Europe's borders, and population are in dispute, as the term continent can refer to a cultural and political distinction or a physiographic one.

Europe is the birthplace of Western culture. European nations played a predominant role in global affairs from the 16th century onwards, especially after the beginning of colonization. By the 17th and 18th centuries European nations controlled most of Africa, the Americas, and large portions of Asia. World War I and World War II led to a decline in European dominance in world affairs as the United States and Soviet Union took prominence. The Cold War between those two superpowers divided Europe along the Iron Curtain. European integration led to the formation of the Council of Europe and the European Union in Western Europe, both of which have been expanding eastward since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

Europe is the world's second-smallest continent by surface area, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometres (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth's surface and about 6.8% of its land area. Of Europe's approximately 50 states, Russia is the largest by both area and population, while the Vatican City is the smallest. Europe is the third most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of 731 million or about 11% of the world's population.
