Kirenia (/kirenia/; Kirenian: Kiiremaa, pronounced /kiiremaa/), officially the Kirenian Council Republic (Kirenian: Kiiremaa Volikogu Vabariik) is a unitary socialist council republic located in Northern Euclea. It shares borders with Werania, Estmere and Kesselbourg to the east, while also bordering Gaullica, Aimilia and East Miersa to the south.

Kirenia is recognised as the homeland of socialism in the world, participating in the Mutual Assistance Organisation and the Association for International Socialism. Additionally, it is a member of the International Council for Democracy and the Community of Nations, with a permanent seat on the Security Committee. Kirenia is a great power and — in accordance with the Treaty of Shanbally — is one of the seven nuclear-capable nations mandated by the Community of Nations.

Etymology

Kirenia is the Estmericised form of the native Kiiremaa, meaning "land of the [River] Kiire". The name of the Kiire derives from the Proto-Weranic *gīraz, and was popularly used by the states of the Rudolphine Confederation during the Early Middle Ages before entering mainstream usage in Kirenian.

Prior to the April Revolution, the form Cirenia was common amongst the states of Eastern Euclea, but the installation of the revolutionary government saw a policy of Kirenisation and Kirenia was chosen as the official Estmerish name in 1920.
