The Ancient Tellurian Union of The Gallant Old Republic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gilbert Keith Chesterton with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 3.964 billion Olds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Healthcare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries. Crime is a problem. The Gallant Old Republic's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Anglican Ordinariate Catholicism, and its currency is the Gallant.

The Gallant Old Republic is ranked 30th in Federation of Free States and 96,746th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -1 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
