After the Nuclear War, Ireland lost all connections with the world except with Scotland. Ireland annexed Northern Ireland in 1965, very soon after the war, assuming England and Wales was dead. Ireland and Scotland became extremely xenophobic and totalitarian. In 1973, Scotland saw and killed two English soldiers. A few months later, Ireland saw a Welsh plane flying around the Irish coast. In September 1973, the Scottish/Irish Invasion of England and Wales begins which makes the beginning of the War of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1989, the Kingdom of Ireland and Kingdom of Scotland unite to become the United Kingdom of Scotland and Ireland.
