Where are all these countries? What forms of government do they follow? Are their leaders all real?
Apparently the Danish leader seems to be real, and the French one is real too. I think they're all secondary political figures, that one would know about in their country, but that don't make it in the international newsWhere are all these countries?

They're all within the general vicinity of Europe. The ones you may not recognize the names of are likely just renamed OTL countries (i.e. Hayastan is the native name for Armenia; Carniola is a region of Slovenia; etc.) or minority areas of OTL Russia which I gave independence ITTLWhere are all these countries?
As a general rule, the ones with leaders titled "president" are presidential republics while the rest are either parliamentary republics or constitutional monarchies. Representative democracy is required to be in the ECF, although some are a tad illiberal (namely the ones whose leaders were suspended from the council as well as a few others)What forms of government do they follow?
Yes, all but one of them are real people. The only fictional one is Kalmykia's Gely Dordzhiev because finding Kalmyk politicians who aren't aligned with Putin is a pain in the assAre their leaders all real?
Correct! The Danish leader is a bit of a meme politician there and the French leader I believe is Macron's foreign minister or something. Similarly, the Greek one is a former OTL finance minister, the Icelandic one is an actor and former Mayor of Reykjavik, the Dutch one is a former OTL deputy PM there, the Norwegian one is their current opposition leader, and the Spanish one is a former PM of theirsApparently the Danish leader seems to be real, and the French one is real too.

Yeah that's pretty much what I meant by "meme". ITTL though he's part of the mainstream Højre party so he actually had a chance at the premiershipRiskær Pedersen is more of a joke than a meme though. Too fringe to make the 2% threshold, which in turn hurts his chances further. (Just to give some context)
It's vaguely the first one but not strictly. The Soviets made SSRs for them, and once the USSR collapsed they all seceded along with the other SSRsAnd eventually we are going to find out whether Russia is really nice to let all of these nationalities go, on the losing side of a war with a peace treaty that makes Brest-Litovsk look friendly or had a civil war so bad that anyone who wanted to leave could.
Landsbergis is 38 years old, that's really young as far as Prime Ministers are concerned (I don't know how similar Lithuania's constitution is to OTL, but that's only three years above minimum age for Prime Ministers)Sorry for no update in a week, here's a massive worldbuilding dump:
The European Common Council is a collective body comprised of the heads of state or government of the member-states of the European Common Federation, as well as the President of the European Common Council and the President of the ECF. It is largely responsible for the ECF's overall direction and priorities.

Spoilers, shhhAny additional SSRs outside Europe?
Huh I didn't know there was a minimum age to be Lithuanian PM besides just being old enough to serve in parliamentLandsbergis is 38 years old, that's really young as far as Prime Ministers are concerned (I don't know how similar Lithuania's constitution is to OTL, but that's only three years above minimum age for Prime Ministers)
Haven't figured absolutely everything out yet, but I'd assume people got sick of the other parties and the Pirates surged. They probably had to form a coalition with the Social Democrats thoughWait...how did the Pirate Party come to power in Sweden?
Considering their PM their politics are probably all over the placethe real question is how big is the pirate party in Iceland?
Hmm, yeah idk either (since I'm not Lithuanian) but I know 35 is the minimum age for the US President so it would make some senseI don't even know if that's a thing, but I do know people in 2016 were saying that Landsbergis cannot become PM because he was under 35 at the time
That's right, nothing to see here. Just keep moving alongyeah just a normal mayor man. nothing unusual at all
Wait...an anarchist mayor. How does that even work?
