Super hard Brexit is the most likely outcome as the government wants it that way and the EU has more or less told us they want completely rid of Britain.

Many think its important that we form an economic union with another country, that will allow free trade and freedom of movement like we once had with the EU, with rights to live or work in that country. But who do we form this relationship with?

The US can't be trusted with Trump and there is no way even without Trump that they'd accept any freedom of movement or a common passport.
Australia and New Zealand are too far to even consider this option. The only other options are with either Canada or Russia.

Economic union with Canada
If the Canadian government approved we could form an economic union with Canada that would allow freedom of movement and freedom to work and live in Canada for Brits with reciprocal rights for Candians to enjoy those rights in Britain, similar to what we once had in the EU. It would also allow a customs Union.

The advantages are that we share a common language, but its likely the Canadian government would take a lot of persuading to accept such a Union.

A further option would be to allow Iceland and Greenland to join this union possibly even Norway.

Economic union with Russia.
This would probably be a lot easier to set up. Many EU remainers want to spite the EU for kicking us out without allowing us to negotiate a softer Brexit. Putin would also enjoy spitting the EU too.
The advantages are that Russia is a lot closer, you could even have regular car ferry services between Newcastle and Hull with St Petersburg.
Putin has also offered free living space for Brits in the Far East of Russia close to China and Japan.
Another advantage is that Russia shares a common border with China and Japan is not far either which would be excellent for trade.

The disadvantages are that we don't share the same language but that could be an advantage in reviving foreign language teachers in British schools made redundant after Brexit to teach pupils Russian.

Total isolation
Britain remains totally isolated with an anti-EU blockade, where we refuse to trade with any EU member state for them refusing to negotiate Brexit and demanding our complete withdrawal from the EU. Dual EU citizenship will not be allowed, if a British born person has EU or Irish ancestry or relatives we will not allow them to live in Britain whilst claiming EU citizenship. They must only have a British passport if they live here.

I doubt there will be a union but there are many ties we could reform with the Commonwealth countries and/or America and/or China and/or etc.

There are actually more opportunities outside of the EU imo, being part of the EU has actually closed off many of the ties we had before and made the UK overly Eurocentric.

What's with all this wild speculation about what a post-Brexit world would look like?

Union with this, union with that.

You all act as though life is one giant Civ game and **** like this just happens. It doesn't.

Where do you get your information from? because it regularly makes me want to bash my head against a wall repeatedly until I turn into a pile of gory brain-stuff.

Don't be daft, everyone knows we're going to form a temporary alliance with someone on the other side of the archipelago then launch a rocket into space. Technological Victory!
