Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What about the African Union, which at least in theory aspires to become like the EU?

There's two thousand kilometres of nothing between North Africa and the AU. And, unlike the Mediterranean, Sahara doesn't even have the redeeming value of enabling bulk transportation of goods with minimal energy and manpower input.

And, well, the AU isn't terribly enticing as economic blocs go...
