The Realm of Ireland (Irish: Fhearainn na hÉireann), commonly refereed to as the Fhearainn, is a sovereign island nation located on the island of Ireland located in the Atlantic Ocean west of Great Britain. It is the only remaining monarchy within the British Isles and serves as a testimony to the Celts that once dominated Gaul, the Commonwealth of Britain and Westland. The Fhearainn claims all 'ethnic' Irish people, those living in Ireland and across the world in diaspora.
Ireland is a unitary constitutional monarchy with a legislature and a elected Ceannaire Lárnach, whom acts much like a Prime Minister. Created initially with the crowning of the Phríomh Éireann in 856 BC, the Fhearainn developed around a monarchy that based itself heavily on Celtic polytheism and tradition. Creation of a highly established religion in central Ireland, created the primacy religious leadership of the Phríomh Éireann in 856 BC on Samhain.The Druidic priests anointed the child Brandubh on the Hill of Tara and proclaimed him being from the Tuatha Dé Danann a tribe that was seen as having supernatural powers and thus a god.
The Clans of Éire grew from a mostly diverse pagan to a highly centralized religious community, which most historians seen that the purpose of the Druids was to anoint a Phríomh in hopes of bringing power to the religious clergy. On 776, the clans and chieftains wanting to seek favor from the now powerful clergy proclaimed absolute devotion to An Bealach known as "the way" and the Phríomh Éireann. While the clan still bickered and were divided, the clans bowed to the demands of Phríomh and would be able to expel any outside influence from Ireland and created a culture of isolationism, the Lia Fáil became the center of the Irish world.
Continuing its traditional state to the modern age, Ireland remains as one of the last monarchies of Europe. Its highly diverse economy was modernized in the the late 1890's after a cultural movement within the nation demanded the Clergy to allow industry to expand. Highly developed farming techniques are practiced among the agricultural sector to keep the fertility of the land took hold in the early 1900's which allowed for a population boom. In the 1960's, the cheap labor of Ireland gave way to a strong manufacturing sector and flourished into the 21st century as a beacon of high-tech industry. The Fhearainn is considered a mixed economy which rejects both strict capitalism and strict socialism.
Fhearainn na hÉireann or the Realm of Ireland was created as a 'ethical realm' for the Celts after the Celtic Druids of Ireland tried to incorporate all those of Britain under the Phríomh and consolidate power to Ireland. While not proclaimed as a Kingdom, the head of state is seen as both a religious and political leader that guides the nation to its destiny; talks to the dead on Samhain and preforms the most sacred rituals of An Bealach.

Closest in genetic relation would be the Basque people of Spain, whom have been theorized as being the source. Interestingly enough, those from both the Basque region and Ireland exhibit negative Rh factors, disconnecting them from the majority of the world who are rhesus positive. In the neolithic era the rise of agriculture gave way to more freedom in time and the development of megalithic monuments became prevalent. Such monuments became important to the religion of An Bealach and the development of the Celtic polytheistic system.
