The Ancient Tellurian Union of The Gallant Old Republic is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Gilbert Keith Chesterton with an even hand, and remarkable for its superstitious fear of technology. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.164 billion Olds are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, cities are engulfed by smog, and churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings'. Crime is moderate. 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 18th in Federation of Free States and 50,127th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -8.2 Insults Per Minute (net).
