The Independent Ijeida Union (not to be confused with the Ijeida Union) was a declared state that existed for the duration of the Broken Union War. It was declared as an independent state, breaking from then dominant First Gishefa, and interested in self governance, claiming that the needs of Ijeida were being superseded by historical interests of Jirenes. The state issued new currency and the name was used by a number of paramilitary groups that fought on its behalf in the armed conflicts of the Broken Union, but was never officially recognized by any other state, nor was it officially recognized as a belligerent or plaintiff in the Reconciliation Court following the war. Representatives from the Independent Ijeida Union, though not specified as such, were party to the drafting of the Accord in Orbit and were among its initial signatories.
