The European Union (EU for short) is a political and economic union of 28 countries on the continent of Europe, 19 of which use the Euro as their common currency. According to Serena Joy, the EU has enacted harsh sanctions and a total trade embargo on the Republic of Gilead, out of loyalty to the displaced US government. However, it is indicated that these hardline policies have taken a toll on the EU's economy, as Serena also remarks that the EU would be wise to lift the embargo or else face the end of the Euro as a world currency [citation needed].
