There is literally nothing wrong with being a transition region.
t. East Yorkshire
>the region where almost half the Danish population live is a transition region
This map is innacurate for France now, we have new regions since this month
Oh, never mind, I'm retarded. It's more like 1/7th of the population. I looked at the population for the island of Zealand (which includes the capital area) instead of the population of the region of Zealand.
just go back to traditional regions ffs
I had not noticed this, triggered
At first I tought maybe Avignon was there, and that since it was annexed relatively recently for some reason they had it attached to the PACA region.
But no, there's literally nothing there. What the fuck.
the revolutionary government intentionally made shit borders to try destroy regional identitie
LIES RIGHTFUL BRETON CLAY
the uncucked one just looks better desu.
Shit I didn't notice you are French, well I'm translating it for the other but here's the link https://www.wikiwand.com/fr/Vaucluse_(d%C3%A9partement)#/Papes_d.27Avignon
Read the Révolution et premier Empire stuff
indeed. and they destroyed french dialects and languages and replaced them with parisian french. before the revolution, only 10% of french people spoke parisian french.
>tfw born too late
>tfw you will never witness glory of Czechoslovakia
Found it, actually it's just that after the Revolution there were a lot of territorial changes and the "Comtat Venaissin", a.k.a Avignon and lands east of it, became French (formerly possessions of the Pope)
And the Comtat included the small enclave, so this small land has always been a special snowflake.
In 1800 after further changes the enclave, part of the Vaucluse department, was cut from it because the land in between were given to the Drôme department
Still, that's not really an explanation for why was there an enclave in the first place
I didn't know Avignon technically wasn't French
It doesn't surprise me tho, dat palace
How is every region but one in Poland "less developed", but that one region "more developed", while there are no "transition" regions?
Do they give all that sweet EU money to just that one region and forget about the rest of the country?
No they aren't theatened of extinction anymore as far as I know.
In each region you can learn it in school (provided you don't live in a 50 people village with one teacher), there are tv/radio programs in the language, newspapers etc
Looks quite developed
This article explains how the Popes got it pretty well:
They really should have done something about it, though, there's no good reason for it to still be an enclave.
And here's the reason the Pope had Avignon in the first place.
Basically a lazy French pope, who refused to move to Rome.
Well Occitan since I'm living in the middle of it
My city has bilingual French/Occitan announcement in the subway and tramway, bilingual street names, there are Occitan studies in my university and it's full, I myself had classes in middle school and could have started before that and continued in high school. There are several Occitan newspaper and at least channel with proper news and programs all in Occitan. I also know several "Occitan speaking only" schools for children.
It sure as hell isn't anywhere to become a main language again but nowhere dead either.
Whatever man I know more than you on the topic at least for this language, that's all.
I never pretented everyone spoke their regional languages, I said those weren't going to die soon.
>True, we abolished all of the minority languages, but now we don't have separatists!
>Coming from a frog.
Fucking hypocrite bastards. I'm going to be happy when I die, just because I'll be able to watch Charles de Gaulle burning in hell.

It's a meme desu. If anything Zealand is not even close to being not-blue.
Only areas close to transition regions are the rural and remote areas like Lolland-Falster, Langeland/Æro, and other islands like fucking Bornholm of all places. The rest are pretty well developed and have easy connections to the rest of the country.
They aren't necessarily underdeveloped, but they experience a lot of people fleeing to more urban areas and a lot of industries and businesses shutting down.
Letterlijk de meest Germaanse/Keltische regio's van Frankrijk zijn de minst ontwikkelde. Lekker.
Tourism. Notice that only the South Aegean Region is coloured blue; that's because Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodos and the like are there.
Also, rest of Greece is not as developed because like half of the Greeks live in Athens and most of the economical activity is going on there.
The UK is the only Western European (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemb., France, UK, Ireland, Switzerland, and by certain definitions Germany; Germans like to consider themselves Central European sometimes) country with a red region.
You can't make this shit up famtbhlmao.
Happy, no, but yea, I hate them for this
>"huuuuur u filthy provinciaux peasants, u culdn't survive witout us, vive Paris"
They destroyed regional identities and they think Paris is the most beautiful/important city...hell, even London is superior
>Still Bretagne without Loire Atlantique
He said worst areas to LIVE, lisboa/setubál aren't particularly interesting places for the average joe to live. I live in the interior of porto district (i.e the province) and the few times I got people from Lisboa in my house they all were in awe to the quality of life we got here.
Only thing in Mazovia that's kind of developed is Warsaw.
yfw born in time just to build the glory of Czechia, annex Slovakia, create puppet states out of Hungary and Poland.
And become Little Entente alpha male once again.
Because the mentality is "we're in the South here, we're the shit, nothing will ever change, everyone breaks the law so am I stupid for respecting it?". That's why when they emigrate they "become" more honest.
>the finnish and swedish country sides sure as hell arent developed
What the fuck do you absolute twats want? Cyborgs picking your fucking potatoes up, dicing and frying it at the same time and send it towards your fat fucking nigger ass on a hooverpad which will shoot it inside your colon?
You silly fucking people. Grow some pubes before you start using the internets.
Are the red regions in the UK farmland or something?
I am Welsh. I come from one of the red regions and grew up in a small farming community and it was basically like growing up in Moldova or Romania.
I lost my virginity to a girl who was my 3rd cousin and became a joke in the village for NOT being incestuous. I used to get picked on in my school of 30 by kids giving me a toy baby with extra ears glued on then the kids would snatch it away, remove the extra ears and tell me 'this is more like your child'. I know it was just 'bants' but people were actually proud to be inbred.
>Aquitaine Limousin Poitou-Charentes
Fucking hell. Couldn't they just call it "Sud Ouest", "Sud Atlantique" or something like that?
Aw, who I am kidding. Everyone is just going to call it "Aquitaine" because the rest of us don't matter. I fucking hate Aquitaine.
I live in Madrid, but I visit Extremadura frequently because of job (the less developed part of Spain)
I must say that it isn't a shithole at all. In fact I would even go as far as to say that people live happier and with less problems of all kinds than in this big city.
Los Nantes son Bretonas
It's capital region. And no it doesn't really get that much donations it's actually obligated to pay for the rest of the country.
Not real, but afaik Warsaw is richer than some Western cities https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_OECD_regions_by_GDP_(PPP)_per_capita
>I used to get picked on in my school of 30 by kids giving me a toy baby with extra ears glued on then the kids would snatch it away, remove the extra ears and tell me 'this is more like your child'.
AS someone who grew up in Romania, I can say you had it way worse then me. The worst I can say was me staring at the window of a store because I didn't have any money to buy sweets. But it was fairly safe and shit, I was 8 years old and would take the tram to school by myself and walk through dodgy areas, play in abandoned construction sites, it was actually pretty fun. Yours sounds like a scene from Deliverance
>your région stays untouched
feels good desu senpai
They're just rural. I assume this map is using wages or economic output as it's development indicator. But as it's relative, rural areas are always going to appear "underdeveloped".
What does it mean to be "less developed" in Europe? There's no places in Europe where people are living in dirt huts, right? That's Africa-tier, right?
Also I can't help but notice how undeveloped the East is....that is what socialism does to you. And yet some people have already forgotten (mostly children who never saw Stalin etc)
It has to do more with how developed the economy, infrastructure (highways are especially a problem in Romania) and social structure (really fucked in eastern european countries, most regions other than capitals usually have everyone bunched up in the lower classes)
>t. moldoveanu' ala ofensat
M-as mira sincer sa nu fii ala,is vreo 2-3 romani ce posteaza in total pe /int/
Russia never implemented full communism (which is a stateless utopia that does not exist). Just socialism (which is state-enforced semi-communism). USSR stood for socialist soviet republics. Not UCSR.
And its the same in North Korea, China, etc etc etc. A long line of shit. I know you don't want to believe it, but history is doomed to repeat itself if you try to install a glorious socialist republic at your home too.
Sunt din București :DDDDDDDDDDD
Again, see the social structure part. Having a region with good infrastructure but literally no local companies means it's gonna be shit.
>Wales and Cornwall less developed than Northern Ireland
