Redrawing the Map

Print comment Post Comments
The Economist has fun imagining how the European nations should be redrawn. Move Britain closer to its Southern European neighbors who are dealing with similar debt problems. Free Poland from its place in between Russia and Germany and let it enjoy the sea breezes in the North Atlantic. "Germany can stay where it is, as can France. But Austria could shift westwards into Switzerland’s place, making room for Slovenia and Croatia to move north-west too.* They could join northern Italy in a new regional alliance (ideally it would run by a Doge, from Venice). The rest of Italy, from Rome downwards, would separate and join with Sicily to form a new country, officially called the Kingdom of Two Sicilies (but nicknamed Bordello). It could form a currency union with Greece, but nobody else." Click through to see the map.
