Dear all,
In the light of Christian Emils example I would propose for discussion:

Geopolitical units exist in time and may vary in spatial extent and can be modeled as instances of E4 Period.
A geopolitical unit as a specific case of an E4 Period is the set of activities and phenomena related to the claim of power, the consequences of belonging to a jurisdictional
area and an administrative system that establishe a geopolitical unit. Examples are countries, administrative areas of countries as districts whose actions and structures
define activities and phenomena in the area that they intend to govern. The borders of geopolitical units are often defined in contracts or treaties and can be seen as declarative places as defined in CRMgeo. The phenomenal borders (both spatial and temporal) of a geopolitical unit can be different to the declarative borders, in particular at times of war.
The spatiotemporal properties of Geopolitical units can be modelled through the properties inherited from E92 Spacetime volume.

Dear all

In issue 312 I was asked to formulate an example to be used in the definition of E4 Period:

Subclass of:          E2<file:///C:/data/cidoc-crm/2016/Berlin%20desember/CIDOC%20CRM%206.2.2(current%20since%202-12-2016)(site).docx#_E2_Temporal_Entity> Temporal Entity

Subclass of           E92<file:///C:/data/cidoc-crm/2016/Berlin%20desember/CIDOC%20CRM%206.2.2(current%20since%202-12-2016)(site).docx#_E91_Co-Reference_Assignment> Spacetime volume

Geopolitical units exist in time and may vary in spatial extent and can be modeled as instances of E4 Period.

 I was asked to formulate a Scandinavian example.  First some background for those of you not very familiar with Nordic history:

In 1397 the Kalmar Union consisting of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, was established. Sweden finally broke out in 1522. Norway became a de facto part of Denmark from the Lutheran reformation in 1537 until the Kiel Peace Treaty between Denmark and Sweden was signed in 1814. The original intention of the treaty was to give Sweden the area of Norway. For some unknown reasons the Swedish crown prince and former French general Jean-Bapstiste Bernadotte intervened and insisted that Norway should be considered to be a separate kingdom in a personal union (under him) with Sweden. The reason is unclear but it may have been a way to secure his position in case the Swedes rejected him (Norway was larger than the tiny Principality of Pontecorv o given him by Napoleon). Somewhat surprisingly, the very liberal Norwegian constitution stemming from the short period of Norwegian independence in 1814 was accepted by Bernadotte. (It is speculated that this was done as a PR-action to appear more liberal and thus increase his odds to become the king of France, after an advice from Madame de Staël ). In any case, Norway and Sweden was in a so called personal union under one king, and a single administration of foreign policy (by the King/Swedish government)

The example:

The union of Norway and Sweden under a common king from 1814 to 1905
