The Republic of O'Brien is an independent state led by President Colman McShane.

It is mostly rural and empty in nature. It has only has a few major cities in which 85% the population live, the rest of the country is sparsely populated farm land, forests and open countryside. It is mostly flat in nature apart from a odd few knowles and tors, but gets hillier in the south and mountainous in the west.

The major river is the Shannon. It runs from the hills near Derry to the coast at Wexford. The highest peaks are is the 2,500ft Eagles' Perch, which is set 8 miles south west of Dornoch and 20 miles south west of the western border with Clan Ross; and the 2,000ft Crows' Nest which is set 10 mile south of Derry and 1 mile north of the southern national border.

HistoryEdit

The state formed 275 AF by the local clan chief and carpenter, Murphy Conner O'Brien, after breaking from the Clan Ross over a depute concerning fishing rights. Relations were repaired and vessel-hood excepted in 325AF and things have been peaceful ever since. The Punt was in in fiscal union with the Ross Pound until 1007.5.

The nation slowly developed from a peasant farming state to a semi-developed rural backwater over the centuries. Things improved greatly as it invested much of it's own money in to the nation's telecommunications, docks, roads, automotive goods, mobile phones, domestic appliances, farms, paint works, paper mills and quarries since about 900AF, but the nation is still a bit under developed and technologically backward. The economy was chaotic and in near continual free-fall until 800AF, leveled out until 900AF, either grown slightly or stayed even since 900AF, but has grown steady since 1008.

The family O'Brian is dominant, but other notable families are O'Higgins, Kerney, Cosgrove, McGuire, Burke, Fitzgerald, O'Sullivan, McGinuiss, Flynn, Reese, Griffiths,  McFall, Ross (a branch of the Rossian Rosses), Brooks, Smith, O'Mally, Bookbinder and Briggs.

The City of Lampiter, Dutchy of Cherbourg and others were discovered on 1019.5AF. The LDMR was discovered in 1023AF. O'Brien is allies with all of them.  

It entered a desarstrouse war with Ross and hoist the white flag to avoid a masicre in 1029.

EconomyEdit

The economy is looking a bit poor in the industrial sector, but technological stuff is mostly up to date. Things are now steady improving. The fiscal union with Ross was successfully and the O'Brien Punt is a stable and strong currency now.
