The Northern Counties Special Zone, also called by most locals Ulster, is a Special Administration technically annexed by the Republic of Ireland, but made as a semi-independant state for integration reasons. It is constituted of four counties that previously were owned by the United Kingdom, but that were took by Ireland after World War II. Unlike the 2 other counties of what they previously called "Northern Ireland", Fermanagh and Tyrone, the 4 counties of Ulster, Armagh, Down, Derry and Antrim, are governed by a special wing of the Fianna Fáil, itself directed by the Minister for the direction of the Northern Counties Neil Blaney.

Ulster Paramilitaries[edit | edit source]

Since even before the Irish War of Independence, Ulster has been plagued by Paramilitaries and Religious Terrorists as a result of its semi-Catholic semi-Protestant culture, this clash of religions has led to a number of deadly internal conflicts that the current "government" of the N.C.S.Z. has been trying to stop ever since its foundation. However, even if their attempts have diminished the paramilitaries, two religious paramilitary groups still remain, clashing against each others every now and then.
