The Democratic Socialist Republic of Beechmount is a unitary parliamentary democratic socialist constitutional Republic. The nation dates back over a century when the partition occured between East and West Beechmount (known locally as Old Beechmount and New Beechmount) before reuniting over three decades ago. The nation is also commonly named the Beechmount Republic, Beechmount or Beechmount DSR.
The Beechmount DSR is a unitary parliamentary democratic socialist republic. The head of state is elected every four years or by the discretion of a referendum against them in the event of dissatisfaction of the President. The President is a full constitional role, protecting the very foundations and the constitution of the Republic and to keep the government in check and order, and declare a Parliament open or temporary cease it. The role is often seen as more of a 'referee' for the government and Parliament, and is leading the state and representing the country abroad and at home.
The Head of Government, also known as Prime Minister, is elected by the people and has a non-fixed term. The candidates for the elections of Prime Minister are decided by the four largest parties in Parliament to run a candidate each to run in the election contests. This allows the people to directly elect their Prime Minister unlike other nations like the Irish Republic or the United Kingdom, where they choose the party leader of the most populous party (the one with the majority of seats held by MPs whom are elected by the public) then they hold the role and invited by the head of state. The government believes that it is better for the people of Beechmount to vote and elect their prime minister directly, regardless of their party and if they have the most popular party.
Currently, the Prime Minister of the country is Tracey McCann, who is also the fourth female leader of the nation, and the third Prime Minister after the abolition of the joint Head of State / Head of Government 'Presidential' role in former PM Tina Campbell's 'big country shake-up'.
Tina Campbell was supported and praised for her constant work at rebuilding the economy, declaring temporary neutrality, resolving foreign tensions, rebuilding relations with other nations, finding new trade deals, speaking out against acts of war, building a new state, correcting democracy in the nation, and more. Her political party, a newly formed republican party taking over the days of the Beechmount Independence Party, the Republican Front Party, strongly believe in new Republic values, and building new states with full capitalist ideals.
The new Prime Minister Tracey McCann has been the first government leader since the re-independence from the dissolvement of the Federation. She is also the leader of the Beechmount Independence Party (BIP) currently, and leads the first BIP government since three governments ago as losing the previous three elections for leadership, and less support for seats in the parliament. She has given the BIP a brand new outlook and plan for the future, whilst rebuilding the nation after its collapse and re-independence declared. She is the the successor to former Beechmount leader from four governments ago, and former BIP leader Mr. Joseph Maguire.
The politics in Beechmount were heavily consistent over the years, from the unity of the Beechmounts, to the change of economy and ideology, however thanks to alliances, unions, colonialism, countless number of wars and the change of leadership and the changes of public votes and political opinion have impacted this and resulted in many changes of government and various leaderships in recent times.
Over 12 different leaders (from former Presidents to the new seperate Prime Minister and HoS President systems) of Beechmount have held office since the Beechmounts United in the 1980's. Before uniting, the new Beechmountians held a new Republic state aside from the Old Beechmount nobility and royalty led nation, which was governed from the former Beechmount House by a Lord and Lady later onto years of war and conflict which is now of course a United Republic between the two, with numerous reforms as well as a temporary colony of the Whiterock Empire (at first by choice, but then refused an exit and war and intense diplomacy was required) (Whiterock Empire now ceasing to exist also), then as a communist nation two different times. The nation was also recently acquired by The Federation of Springhill, Lower Ballymurphy, Westrock, Springfield & Beechmount which was a fascist dictatorship regime. This federation later collapsed following intervention from the Union for Ulster Micronations and the people who rose up against their regime to demand their democracy, freedom and independence to be returned as soon as possible, which this after much debate in the Parliament for Beechmount between freedom fighters and various leaders agreed on the dissolvement of The Federation which also then led to the reinstatement of the former five republics to return to their original forms pre-takeover.
Beechmount is part of numerous alliances for trade, travel, agreements, economics and defence. Citizens of Beechmount have reported to be at a satisfactory standard of living in majority of regions. Isolated regions such as Cluain Mor, Iveagh and the small proportion of La Salle under Beechmount jurisdiction have reported either dissatisfied or prosperous standards of living in their areas based on the condition of the local economy, development and transport available in those areas.
Citizens of Beechmount are entitled to VISA free emigration to other UUM nations part of the Common Agreement that is signed when a nation joins the Union for Ulster Micronations and the UUM Foreign Ministry has reported a rise in Beechmountians' emigration to other UUM nations, commonly to the Poleglass Democratic Republic.
Allies & Friends
Beechmount is currently a member state of the Union for Ulster Micronations (also the UUM) for relationships and diplomacy, including economic ties and trade relations along with soft or eased restriction based borders, with no need for VISAs for the right to work, live or study in any of these nations (participating nations only in the UUM Free Will Zone).
We also share high relations with the City State of Belfast, and their recently formed diplomatic and economic union, the Union for the Wellbeing of Growing Nations (UWGN) which allows any micronations within it to have access to resources and diplomacy for stable economic growth and share it among each nation. This union is still yet to continue to develop, however its member states as of now are growing with several applications to join currently pending.
This is the map of the current territory of Beechmount. This map is accurate as of February 2022
On the 5th of February 2022, Beechmount officially changed its flag to two different designs. Later that month, the design was changed to just one official flag. the second flag design remains as an alternate version. On the 3 July 2022, a revised version of the fkag was adopted.
The flags both have the same meaning. The towers in the centre resemble Beechmount House, a historic building built in 1777 from which the area gets its name. Both of the flags where designed by Luke Hannaway
The original Beechmount flag lasted from 9 January 2022 to 5 February that same year. It was never meant to be a long term flag. It is thought that the building in the middle represents Beechmount House, but is unknown. The flag was designed by President Joseph.
Union for Ulster Micronations
The Union for Ulster Micronations consists of a number of Micronations in what is known as the province of Ulster in a union of strength, friendship, strong alliances, trade, economic benefits, diplomatic relations and domesticated travel, this also coincides with the Domestic Travel Act (the act which allows neighbouring Micronations to travel border-free).
In 2002, a new economic and trades union was set up known as the Union for Ulster Micronational Economies for several micronations who would benefit from the new trade policies they would share. In 2005, this trade union had reformed into the now present day UUM (Union for Ulster Micronations) which was a part-political union and trades union. It had also evolved into a travel and eventually years later internally VISA free movement and emigration union for the nations part of it and the citizens of strictly those nations only. Over the years, we have witnessed internal land borders being taken down, no requirement for VISAs for UUM citizens in UUM nations, regulatory bodies and health and safety controls, human right guarantees, internal security and defence and UN membership for all UUM member nations each, and now as of 2023, a new shared currency of the Ulster Quid is now widely available optionally for UUM member nations in order to simplify travel and trade much more easier than before. Only a few nations of the many are opting to look into using the currency and those few are still yet to decide if they should adopt it.
