On paper, Ireland’s federal government doesn’t seem to be much of a government at all.
But it has some of the strongest and most efficient federalism in Europe, and its fiscal policies are one of the most generous in the world.
Ireland has the most federalist parliament in the EU, and the strongest anti-corruption laws.
It is the only EU country to guarantee universal health coverage for all citizens.
But it also has a weak federalism that makes it difficult to negotiate with any of the 28 EU member states.
In short, Ireland is a nation of federalists.
That is a good thing.
The problem with federalism is that it’s not perfect.
Ireland, for instance, is not a member of the European Union.
That means it cannot join the European Central Bank.
The country is a member state of the World Trade Organisation, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
It also has very low tax rates, which means that many of its residents pay very little tax.
It has the second lowest rate of national income tax in the OECD, behind only the Netherlands.
“There is no place for a federal government in a democracy,” said Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who was elected in November to a second four-year term.
He said the government would use federalism as an example for the rest of the EU to follow.
“Ireland has a strong federalist tradition and we need to be consistent with that,” he said.
“And we will do everything we can to use this opportunity to promote this tradition in the rest in Europe.”
