European Union is an economic and political union of 28 countries, having grown from its original 12 by the accession of new member states, gaining power by the addition of policy areas to its remit.
The EU has developed a single market through a standardised system of laws which apply in all member states. Within the Schengen Area (which includes EU and non-EU states) passport controls have been abolished. EU policies aim (or, to skeptics, claim) to ensure the free movement of people, goods, services, and capital, enact legislation in justice and home affairs, and maintain common policies on trade, agriculture, fisheries and regional development.
