The Euran Economic Union (EEU) was formed in 1694 AN and it comprises the Euran nations of Constancia, the Suren Confederacy, Nouvelle Alexandrie, and Zeed. The EEU originated as a result of the First Fontainebleau Accords, part of a greater diplomatic effort to bring these neighboring Euran nations together in greater cooperation. While the First Fontainebleau Accords were signed in 1691 AN by all nations, the Treaty underwent lengthy ratification processes that were completed when its last country, Constancia finally ratified the First Accords in 1694 AN.

Military and Intelligence Cooperation Committee

Often criticised for being a superfluous liaison staff that duplicated some of the roles of the Trans-Euran Command, the personnel attached to the Military and Intelligence Cooperation Committee had a rare opportunity to provide useful service after being tasked with organising a Euran Expeditionary Force, based on contributions from the Suren Confederacy and Zeed, to participate in the liberation of Razjania during 1706-1707.

From 1708 AN the Military and Intelligence Cooperation Committee was absorbed into the Committee of Euran Salvation.

Headquarters

The Hotel Metropole (1681 AN), built in the style of the old Alexandrian city of Geneva.

The Euran Economic Union shall be headquartered in the picturesque coastal town of Fountainebleau in Nouvelle Alexandrie. Until the signing of the First Fountainebleau Accords in 1691 AN, the Hotel Metropole, one of the most luxurious and prestigious resorts in the city, served as the main hosting site for rounds of diplomatic talks that regularly went into the evening and early morning. However, it was not all work, as there were dozens of balls, parties, and plenty of social functions for diplomats and government officials of Constancia, Zeed, the Suren Confederacy, and Nouvelle Alexandrie present for the talks and their staff.

While the Hotel Metropole served as a world-class site to host the summit, soon after signing the first set of accords it was decided that a proper complex of buildings would be built to house the Euran Economic Union. The complex is currently under design. It will serve as the official headquarters of the organization, provide offices for all its staff, and include museums and cultural centers. The land to be occupied by the headquarters and buildings shall be placed in a special legal arrangement under the sole administration of the Euran Economic Union and not the government of Nouvelle Alexandrie. Under New Alexandrian law, the headquarters of the EEU has been granted extraterritoriality much like foreign embassies have in the Federation already.

The Euran Economic Union has three additional subsidiary regional headquarters in each of the capitals of the member states. These were opened in 1694 AN, soon after Constancia finally ratified the First Fountainebleau Accords. These adjunct offices help represent EEU interests, facilitate diplomatic and cultural activities, and enjoy certain extraterritorial privileges, but do not contain the seats of major organs of the organization.

In addition to the foregoing, the Imperial State of Constancia and the ESB Group very generously donated 20 acres for the perpetual use of the organization in Tapfer Plaza, Aqaba. The offices of the Commission of Technical Experts, Financial Committee, and the central permanent public information office of the Pan-Euran Highway were located here, initially in leased space, beginning 1695.

Observers

The Euran Economic Union may grant entities observer status. The Euran Economic Union welcomes many international agencies, entities, and a non-member state (Natopia) as observers. Observers have the right to speak at meetings of the Euran Economic Union, but not to vote on resolutions or decisions that the EEU takes.

Observer status is granted by a resolution of the Interparliamentary Committee.
