Northern Ireland is a constituent country of the United Kingdom, roughly corresponding to the old province of Ulster. It is the most recent to join, formally entering the union in 1922. Unlike the rest of Ireland, Northern Ireland is majority Protestant, due to extensive English and Scottish settlement throughout its history. The political situation of Northern Ireland is controversial - many people in the Republic of Ireland believe that Northern Ireland should be a part of their nation. This controversy has escalated to violence often.
