The Gael Four (G4) collective is a group of nations who have signed the Mandara Accord to various extents. This Accord sets out provisions in the fields of trade, immigration and travel, intelligence, education and security. The Gael Four, although not legislated, seeks to further harmonise laws between the different states. The agreement seeks to ensure fairness in trade and a healthy collaboration between Gaelitic states. The Gael Four was established through the signing of the Mandara Accord, with provisions strengthening the status of non-founder states being introduced in the Highland Documents. Through the usage of processes within these two documents, the Gael Four has grown from an organisation of four nations to beyond that. Gael Four states maintain embassies in each others’ nations but also an additional building in Arnton for their G4 representatives and administrators.
The Gael Four, according to 2018 composite estimates, has a population of around 133 million people. Major ethnicities include Oster, Ahnslen and Dormill-Stiurian. The G4 contains 36 urban areas with a population of over a million, with four of them having a population over 4 million.
The G4 has no formal connection to any religion and many states within the group have laws which prevent the establishing of state religions.
The Gael Four region covers a variety of nations and climates, with montane areas generally in the centre amidst extensive plateau and hill regions. The Northern Coastal regions is typically cooler than the Eastern and Western Coastal regions whilst the Southern transitions from Mediterranean to subtropical. The population is mostly urbanised and cities are quite spread out, although there being a bias to sheltered parts of coastline such as in the case of Porohare, Arborai and Camarga.
The G4 largely operates as a forum for international relations rather than an intergovernmental decision-making platform. Often, ambassadors and commissioners will present topics and motions to which voluntary action is requested. The exception to this is admission procedures.
The G4, although comprised of diverse nations, typically has a non-interventionist and neutral stance on issues that do not directly threaten Gaelitic peace and security. However, when situations such as these have arisen it is not uncommon for multilateral action to occur through the conduits and channels of the G4.
