OVERVIEW
Leader: Prince James Callaghan II(Age 24.)
Leader's Wife: Princess Caoimhe Callaghan(Age 21.)
Heir: Ryan Callaghan(Age 8.)
Capital: Dublin(Pictured Below)

Cuirpthe is a small island nation in the British Isles. The populous is devout Catholic, and all moves made by the Prince are done in the name of God. We excel in economic growth and public education.
The Prince is currently working on abolishing the oppressive laws set by the previously ruling Kingdom, though this is no easy task, as he and his father both have been working on this for 60 years.

HISTORY
The Timeline of Cuirpthean History
CURRENT YEAR:AD 1013
AD 800-Formation of the Kingdom of Cuirpthe
AD 837-King Sean O'Conner rises to power
AD 844-The First Cuirpthean Civil War begins
AD 899-O'Conner Family subjugates the rebels
AD 927-The War of 5 Families begins
AD 946-Prince James Callaghan takes power
AD 996-Prince James Callaghan II comes of age and succeeds his father
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cuirpthe formed at an undetermined time, though it was estimated to be around AD 800. The first Kingdom of Cuirpthe was a semi-prosperous,  pagan kingdom, run by the fair O'Conner family. or at least it was fair, until 837, when Sean O'Conner became King. he was oppressive, and created many laws, including slavery of the poor.

Eventually, in 844, the peasants rebelled against the kingdom. Despite their weakness, their untraditional warfare helped them last 55 years before Sean himself killed their leader and enslaved them all. the nation would have 28 years of peace before 4 more clans rebelled against the kingdom. This became known as the "War of The Five Families".

The War of The Five Families(WOTFF) was the defining piece of Cuirpthean history. It began in the year 927. As Cuirpthe expanded northward, the increasingly neglectful King O'Conner was losing his grip on the newly formed provinces. Eventually, the northernmost provinces each declared their ownership of the Kingdom. These four provinces and the kingdom itself began a massive war.

Gray:Callaghan Family
Pink:Murphy Family
Cyan:Walsh Family
Orange:McCarthy Family
After 19 years, the Callaghan family encircled Dublin and the O'Conner family surrendered.
The leader of the family, James Callaghan, declared himself Prince of Cuirpthe, upheld the Catholic Church, and in 996, was succeeded by his son James II.

Today, James II is a fair Prince, currently spreading the Catholic Church far and wide.

The government of Cuirpthe is made up of four branches:

Court of Advisors
Court of Generals
Court of Ambassadors

The Royal Family is made up of:
Prince James Callaghan II(Age 24.)-Current head of the Callaghan Family. Fair and generous, yet ruthless with his glaive in wartime.
Princess Caoimhe Callaghan(Age 21.)-Current princess. Loving and kind, protective of her people. Known to wield a sword and shield in wartime.
Ryan Callaghan(Age 8.)-The heir to the Callaghan Family and next Prince of Cuirpthe. Innocent and polite.

The Court of Advisors has 7 advisors, with the two most important being:
Advisor Zachary Thompson-Head Advisor to the Callaghan Family. Serious and honorable.
Advisor Aidan McLean-Secondary Advisor to the Callaghan Family. Trustworthy, but excitable.

The Court of Generals is made up of:
Commander Joseph Murphy-Head of the Royal Army. Strong and commanding.
Admiral William MacArthur-Head of the Royal Navy. Quick-witted and intelligent.
General Martins-Second in command to the army.
General Williams-Second in command to the navy.

The Court of Ambassadors is made up of:
Ambassador Michael Lynch-Ambassador to The British Isles. Polite and persuasive.
Ambassador Alan Kennedy-Ambassador to Western Europe. Short-tempered.
Ambassador Brian Clarke-Ambassador to Eastern Europe and the Fennoscandian Region. Trustworthy and honest.

Ideas made by the CoG must be passed by the CoAmb, then the CoAdv, then the Royal Family.
