Ireland (or Eire) was a nation-state on Earth, comprising the island of Ireland, one of the British Isles off the northwestern coast of Europe. Great Britain first invaded the Ireland in the 12th century, and held dominion over it for centuries, often marked by rebellion. In the 1920s, the island was divided, creating the Irish Free State (later the Republic of Ireland) and Northern Ireland (which remained part of the United Kingdom). In 2024, Ireland was reunited as a result of violence used as a political instrument. This event became known as the Irish Reunification of 2024. (TNG: "The High Ground")
