Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are two "weights" that each country has: MEPs and voting weight in the Council (for the purposes of qualified majority). So I'd put the council votes and the population inside the country box, and the number of MEPs in the arrow. I would also put all the countries on one side of the diagram, in one line, and the EP the nearest "blob" to this row so as to prevent the lines from being overlaid by other blobs.

You can put the three main institutions as the vertices of one triangle, and the ECB in the centre.
