Ireland is a country in northwestern Europe with the capital Dublin. The Irish Republic occupies about five sixths of the island of Ireland. The island state includes the main island and numerous smaller and larger islands and is almost as large as the Czech Republic.
The warm North Atlantic Current creates a moderate climate with mild winters, summers that are not too hot and high humidity all year round. There are only 31 species of mammals, no snakes, only a small species of reptile and no larger natural forests. Shrubs, flowers, many types of moss and lichen grow very lush because of the climate.
The population is over 80% Irish. The official and school languages are the predominantly spoken English and Irish Gaelic. Almost 80% of the Irish are Roman Catholic. The Catholic Church has long played a crucial role in politics and society. Conflicts between Irish nationalist Catholics and pro-British Protestants influenced the history of the island for centuries and culminated in the civil war in Northern Ireland (Northern Ireland conflict) in the second half of the 20th century.
Corporate taxes are very low in Ireland. Numerous international tech companies, especially from the USA, have settled here (Airbnb, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter). The economy is dependent on exports. During the global financial crisis that began in 2007, Ireland found itself in a period of economic slump, but recovered relatively quickly under the EU bailout fund. Its main economic sectors are industry, information and communication technology, and trade and tourism. Ireland has been a member of the EU since 1973 and belongs to the euro zone, but not to the Schengen area. Ireland pursues a consistent policy of neutrality and is not a NATO -Member.

Religious freedom is guaranteed by the Constitution (Article 44). The special status of the Catholic Church, which had previously been anchored in it, was repealed in a referendum in 1972. Nonetheless, the Catholic Church, as the largest religious community and the holder of the traditional majority denomination of the Irish, is still an important factor in public life and in the past has exercised significant influence on state legislation and interpretation on several occasions (marriage and divorce law, contraception and abortion).. Even so, only around 60% of couples marry in church.
According to the 2016 census, 78.3% of the population belonged to the Catholic Church, a decrease of 6% compared to 2011. One of the reasons for this was the abuse scandals in the Catholic Church in the 1990s and 2000s. 9.8% of those surveyed said they did not belong to any church, almost twice as many as in 2011. Almost 3% supported the Anglican Church of Ireland, 1.6% supported Protestant denominations (Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, etc.) and 1, 3% to the Orthodox Church.
The Catholic Church also includes the dioceses in Northern Ireland as part of its all-Irish organization. Some of these cross borders and there are four archdioceses (Armagh, Cashel and Emly, Dublin, Tuam) with 22 suffragan dioceses. Armagh, Northern Ireland, is the seat of the Catholic and Anglican Primate of all Ireland.
The largest of several non-Christian religious minorities, which are negligibly small in number, are the Muslims (1.3% of the population; mosque and Islamic cultural center in Dublin) and the Jews (fewer than 3,000 people; several Jewish institutions in Dublin). There is evidence that Jews were in Ireland as early as 1079, the first Jewish community is attested in the 12th century.
