The Tunnel Snakes of Ancient Republics is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Butch DeLoria with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 4.412 billion Tunnel Snakes 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.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vault 101. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tunnel Snake economy, worth 441 trillion Sweetrolls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 99,983 Sweetrolls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, builders across Ancient Republics are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and many aides in Butch DeLoria's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancient Republics's national animal is the Tunnel Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tunnel Snake.

Ancient Republics is ranked 111,518th in the world and 2,211th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 808.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
