After DoomsdayEdit

As society broke down, Bakewell UDC councillor Tony Ramsbottom took control. The situation was tough as refugees were pouring in. Some were taken in, but most were turned away as the villages and townsfolk knew they could not support them during the famin after nuclear winter and summer. Others were used as expendable labour to build the massive earthen ramparts used to block off the hostile tribesmen to the north and east during the 1960's.

A famine and cholera epidemic hit the nation in both mid-1963 to late 1964 and late 1967 to late 1968.The Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), also known among farmers as 'blue-ear pig disease' also killed some of their pigs in late 1966 and early 1967. Help was forthcoming from Ireland, which helped greatly. the situation began to improve in the mid 1970's and the country became a self-sufficient democracy in the early 1980's.

First contactEdit

Explorers from Northamptonshire and Market Harborough arrived in 1975. First contact was accidentally made with Provisional Republic of the UK after a steam train travel south of Matlock discovered the nation in 1976. Contact was intentionally with the Republic of East Anglia, Scarboroughshire and Duchy of Lancashire and Westmoreland a year later.


Agricultural output has steadily risen from the late 1970's onwards.

Despite its relatively small size, North Derbyshire is well respected by many developed nations with notable historians. In its 1982 expedition to Doncaster, with several artefacts were put in the National Museum, which inspired people to go on 3 more expeditions the next year. Hostile tribesmen drove off the mission to Sheffield, but the 2 to Doncaster were a success and the local tribesmen were offered assistance like agricultural equipment and new farming techniques.

Both Ireland and New Derbyshire Republic would also provide technical help and training in the mid to late 1980's.

1985 to todayEdit

It has been carefully playing of the Provisional Republic of the UK, Republic of East Anglia, Scarboroughshire, Duchy of Rutland and the Duchy of Lancashire for greater regional influence since 1995. Settlers have moved N. W. Nottingham since 1997.
