The Gateshead Republic (officially the Confederation of Newcastle and North-Eastern England), sometimes shortened to Gateshead, is an unrecognized survivor republic in north-eastern England, comprising of most of former Tyneside. It borders the kingdoms of Northumbria to the north, and Cleveland to the south.
While it is yet to establish any formal exterior relations, and is still attempting to join international organizations, the country is known, one might say infamous, for its expansionist tendencies. Its invasion of Sunderland in 1992 caused tensions with its neighbors, and while this political atmosphere has calmed over the years, there is still an overhanging distrust between the nations.
