I think that Esperanto thinks of itself as a world language, but it is
created basically from Western alphabets and vocabulary.  So I think
"European" would probably not be all too wrong.  Where do we have
things like Brazilean Portuguese or Argentinian Spanish?  They are
basically European languages but are spoken elsewhere.  Esperanto's
relation to Europe could probably be considered loosely similar.
