What is the EU? EU stands for European Union. It is a community of more than 25 European countries. In 1957, after the Second World War, six countries – Belgium, Luxembourg, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands – decided to bury their old enmities and to work together on the economic front. At that time the union of these states was known as the European Economic Community (EEC). The objectives of the EU today are to establish a unified economic and security policy for its member nations.   What is the constitution? A constitution is supposed to be the defining essence of a country. It is a formal document defining the rules that govern the political system and the rights of the citizens. Most constitutions seek to regulate the relationship between the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary. It is thus the most basic law of a territory from which all other laws and rules are derived. Constitutions may also ensure that their most basic principles can never be abolished, not even by amendment. The longest constitution in existence is the Constitution of India containing 444 articles, 12 schedules, and 94 amendments. The shortest constitution is that of the United States of America.   What is a nation? A nation is a group of people unified by important things such as its history and culture, traditions and customs, and a common language. In general, a nation lives together in one country, like the Spaniards live in Spain or the Icelanders live in Iceland. But every nation does not have a country. All the Kurds, for instance, speak Kurdish, but live in different countries – Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Syria. In Switzerland, on the other hand, four languages are spoken: Swiss German, French, Italian and Rhaeto-Romanic.
