Secrets of Power
Tir Tairngire was formed in 2035
Politics and Government
The Tir was run by the Council of Princes established by Lugh Surehand during the creation of Tir Tairngire.
Recently the country has democratized and the Council of Princes has been replaced by the elected representatives of the Star Chamber. The current leader of the Star Chamber is Larry Zincan, a former prince and an ork. (circa 2070)
The national military and police force (Constabulary) are both part of the Peace Force.
Tir Tairngire did not sign the Business Recognition Accords. Megacorporations can only operate in Tir Tairngire through subsidiaries which do enjoy extraterritoriality. The Council of Princes, as a collective, owns at least 5% of the subsidiary. The head corporate officer must be a Tir subject unless the Council gives a special dispensation. The High Prince can allow a megacorporation to operate without these restrictions by giving a “Prince’s Seal.” Kokura Biotechnology was the last corp to receive a Prince’s Seal, but it left the country when the economy went bad. The Council of Princes, as a collective, used to own at least 5% of all national corporations. However, this restriction has been lifted in hopes of revitalizing the economy.
Much of this has changed with the recent political turmoil in the Tir. Although the country has opened its borders more to megacorporation investment it remains to be seen exactly how the economic climate will settle in this now chaotic state. (circa 2070)
