The Free Republic of Old Frontier is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President William Cody with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.142 billion Frontiersmen are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harrisburg. The average income tax rate is 40.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Frontier economy, worth 41.5 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,359 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", royalist is the most offensive slur in the Frontier language, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Old Frontier's national animal is the buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Frontier is ranked 147,453rd in the world and 8th in Alternate Earth for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.8 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
