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 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
