You are comparing an institution that has existed for less than 50 years, with a symbiotic partnership (however unfair at times) that has existed for centuries. It is imo nothing alike.
Yes, the EU did not come about as a result of an accident of birth.

The problem with nationalism is that it is many countries are historical inventions, just as abstract as the EU if you want to look at it objectively. Fortunately nationalism tends not to encourage that style of analysis.
