The Free Republic of Old Frontier is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by William Wallace with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.479 billion Frontiersmen are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington-on-the-Brazos. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Frontier economy, worth 59.6 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 40,302 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, on streets of broken glass people are being murdered for their faith, the bum of William Wallace has been voted the most recognisable in Old Frontier, and the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old Frontier's national animal is the buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is National Protestantism.

Old Frontier is ranked 150,749th in the world and 9th in Roleplay Union The Americas for Most Inclusive, scoring 27.55 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
