Countries of Europe o Germany 82 million people Initially was made up several tribes, royal families Unified late 1800s early 1900s Was divided after WWII West Germany = part of Europe, democratic East Germany = USSR, Communist Contains 16 states Highly urbanized 89% of the population A leader in Europe : manufactoring/economic stability Largest economy of Europe Has the Autobahn (interstate system) o France 64 million people Oldest state in europe Urban Paris 2.2 million people Contains the highest Mountain in Europe Mount Blanc Huge in agriculture (biggest producer in Europe) Cattle, grapes, cheese Known for Rich food Architecture Art o Great Britain UK 62.7 Million People Regions: England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland Surrounded by water: North Sea, English Channel, and the Atlantic Ocean The US's strongest ally National Dish: Chicken Tikka Masala Prominent Religion Protestant o Ireland Highest growing economy in the EU Uses the Euro Gained independence form the UK in 1921 Conflict between the Catholics and Protestants Irish Republican Army (IRA) English and Gaelic are the national languages Strong Irish Influence in America New York Boston Chicago o Italy 60.5 million people Major states or regions Tuscany, Milan, Venice, Piedmont Rich urbanized North Poor rural South Sicily is very poor and underdeveloped Origin of La Cosa Nostra (Sicilian Mafia) Milan-Turin-Genoa Triangle Heavy manufacturing Milan is the largest city in Italy o "Rock" of Gibraltar 2.6 sq mile area (peninsula Iberian) South Spain Owned by Britain Surrendered by Spain in 1713 (via the War of the Spanish Succession) One of the most densely populated areas in the world 12,840 people per square mile Official language is English Important militarily and economically Access to the Mediterranean sea from the Atlantic Recent events in Ukraine o Major divisions after the Cold War o Country divided politically East = Pro Russia West = Pro Europe o Russia needs access to the ocean and resources Military and economic factor… o Babushkas of Chernobyl Self-settlers Wildlife Returning in force Invisible enemy Women who were children during Stalin's reign. Starvation Stalin burned down cities and towns along with all of the agriculture. Lived through WWII with the Nazi's. Concentration camps or forced labor. Relationships do not equal causation The world health organization says 4000 deaths while green peace says 10000 deaths. The women are out living the men because the men are drinking and smoking, across the world it is more accepted for a man to drink and smoke than it is for a woman. In that case you have higher numbers of men drinking and smoking and dying from that instead of the radiation poisoning. The town was built around Chernobyl. The people who were relocated seem to be dying sooner than the ones who came back. o Russia is the biggest country by land area. o You can see Alaska from Russia, only 4km between the two. o Physical Geography SW Russia desert Main area of settlement near Moscow Cannot connect to any waterways. Caspian sea o 4 regions Russian core Majority of the population Siberia Freezing Where people would be exiled Eastern Frontier Desert section Separation between Siberia and Frontier is climate and culture Far East Not many settlements Hard to navigate the land o Approximately 75% of Russia is Siberia has far as land area o A majority of the population lives in the Russian Core and the Eastern Frontier o Physical Russian Geography Russian Plain West of the Ural Mountains; Moscow (core of Russia) Ural Mountains (2000 miles long) Low relief mountain chain separating East/West Russia Western Siberia (constant elevation) Flat plains and forests Central Siberia Moderate mountains; very cold (Artic Circle) Eastern Highlands (Mostly the Yakutski Basin) One of the most remote places on earth o Climate SW desert Russian Core humid continental (northern Midwest into Canada) Majority is subarctic. (FREEZING) Tundra only has a few centimeters a year that is thawed for a limited amount of time. o Interesting facts about Russia Continentally has a huge impact on Russia's climate Similar to the upper Mid-west and Canada Economy is rising It depends heavily on oil Becoming increasingly more "modern" and "western" Red square A city square block where the government is housed Misconceptions Not called red square because it is called a communist country Not because the buildings are red It is because the language has evolved. Used to be the slums until the 1400s o The Soviet Union U.S.S.R. (CCCP) Union of Soviet Socialistic Republics...
