The name Poleglass simply comes form the Belfast City Council Electral Ward of the same name. The ward was named after the ancient Poleglass Townland


Pre Micronation

Poleglass was once an ancient townland. The area has been inhabited for hundreds of years. A Celtic roundhouse was found in the area. An unknown ruined historical site known as "Span" is located in the North [2]


The Poleglass Democratic Republic was founded on 30 June 2021 as the "Republic of Poleglass". Its land area only included Poleglass City and Twinbrook. At this point it was unified with the United Republic of Twinbrook

Confederate States of Colin Membership

On the 11 January 2022 the Confederate States of Colin (CSOC) was formed, and Poleglass opted to join. This unity was shortlived as it left again a week later. Tensions between Poleglass and the CSOC where tense for a while, but after the Glenkeen Agreement, an agreement which traded the townland of Glenkeen in exchange for the rest of Colin Glen Forest Park, the nations became freinds

Lisburn and Castlereagh Invasion

In January 2022, Poleglass, along side the CSOC and former Southern Twinbrook, was invaded and occupied by the Commonwealth of Lisburn and Castlereagh. The occupation lasted 2 days when Lisburn agreed to pull out of the nations

Modern Day Poleglass

Poleglass was renamed to the Poleglass Democratic Republic in March 2022. In June that same year, after the collapse of the CSOC and its successor the Irish Council, Glenkeen was granted to Poleglass. It was integrated into Poleglass City.

Foreign relations

Poleglass has begun relations with the president of the Republic of Roscamistan and the King of the Kingdom of Hurikano, but it hasn't gone far as of yet

Allies Mutual Recognition Unilateral Recognition Enemies

Poleglass has been allies with Beechmount since its founding. Beechmount was founded several months after Poleglass, being inspired by it. The same is true for Naas.
Poleglass used to be freindly with MCO Colin (Military Council of), but their revelations have since turned sour. Poleglass and MCO Colin dispute several territories.

Territory Dispute
Southern Poleglass Poleglass lays claim to Southern Poleglass, a highly populated area. MCO Colin also claims ownership
Dunmurry MCO Colin claims control over Kilwee in North Dunmurry, and South Dunmurry as a puppet state. Poleglass recognises Republic of Dunmurrys claims to independence and control over the whole Dunmurry region
Dairy Farm The Twinbrook dictator ceded Dairy Farm Shopping Centre to MCO Colin. The Twinbrook Liberation Party disputes this, Poleglass supports the claim


There Poleglass Military Force currently has 10 members.

Poleglass City

A road in Glengoland Prefecture, Poleglass City

Poleglass City is by far the largest and most populous townland. It is the centre of Poleglass shopping and living. Many housing developments are located here, such as Old Colin, Glenkeen and Glengoland. An exact population of the city is unknown, but its thought to be over half the nations population

Woodbourne Town

Located in the outskirts of Poleglass, Woodbourne joined the nation in mid 2022. Woodbourne has a huge police station as well as a selection of shops. City status for Woodbourne has been debated, but it has been rejected due to its current lack of infrastructure and small population.

The Holy City of the Nativity

This is the religious hub of Poleglass. It is the smallest townland, but was awarded city status due to its religious significance.

Colin Glen Forest Park Special District

This special townland has no permanent population. As Poleglass' only national park, it was given special status. This will make sure the area is protected and kept as a wildlife haven

Geography and climate

Poleglass, for the most part, is flat, except for a small portion of Black Mountain at the northen tip of the nation. Two rivers flow through the country those being Derriaghy and Colin Rivers.

The Colin River flowing through Poleglass

The Coin River makes its start outside Poleglass. In Poleglass, it flows from near the stone quarry in Black Mountain, and flows all the way down through Colin Glen Forest. The river then flows into Dunmurry, where it flows through Dunmurry City and into the River Lagan.
Derriaghy River starts in the forests of Western Poleglass. Its flows into the Poleglass City centre where it crosses the border into Kilwee, Dunmurry. The river ends shortly after.


Poleglass' main exports are stone and coal. In March 2022 Poleglass went through an economic crisis due to a lack of exports. The government invested in reopening a disused quarry and the coal industry to fix the crisis
