Baltic States

If NATO formed the AtU, and without a doubt, the EU was involved, what caused the Baltics and half of the Nordics to go skipping off with the EF? It's odd for Europe to split in such a way, especially the Nordic countries which normally stick together rather well. One would've expected much of the EU (Those without major cultural differences) to come over to one side of the border in larger chunks.

Djz is making the history. Meanwhile, I can only give my version of it, how wrong it may be.

They left NATO and EU, when both were closing in on their sovereignity. AU thus formed, and the former socialist states left the union. Only to lose their sovereignity to EF. Such is life.

From what I grasp, basically NATO was useless when Russia started acting up so Eastern Europe began to organize some sort of coalition to handle their defense on their own then they became so focused on keeping Russia in line that when they turned their attention on the Turkic states the EF started bringing those countries into the fold to help resist Russia as well. As for the Nordic countries, apparently Sweden and Norway had a falling out, plus Sweden and Finland aren't NATO anyways so Norway is kind of set out from the two already.

IDT Dj has specified the fate of the EU, but so far as my headcanon goes it likely collapsed not far from the current day IRL, probably the Eurozone finally brought it down (which no surprise there, they've made a mess of that, to significantly understate things).

Well by that logic we're looking at a financially unstable, and very deeply divided (probably very xenophobic) Europe..? Looks like we've the scene set for WWIII there...
