What if post WW1, around 1919 and after Versailies, Switzerland with cash incentives to rebuild the countries in question offered to join Austria, Belguim, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands to form an European federation with other countries apart from the Nordic ones allowed to join if they want? The rules drawn up in Switzerland would be. Only open to countries in continental Europe (UK & Eire excluded) The federation capital would be Zurich. Romansh (a neutral language) would become the standard language of the EF. All countries joining the EF would have to dispose of the overseas lands (liquidate their Empires) The Swiss Franc ( a neutral currency) would become the standard currency replacing the rest. Freedom of movement would allow a mixing of the previous populations allowing better integration. Would this be possible? Would it work? How would the UK react to this country being created? Regards.
