The Ancient Tellurian Union of The Gallant Old Republic is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Alfred IV Edgar Oswin Athelstan with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 14.695 billion Olds are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, with Social Policy and Healthcare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 2.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Olden economy, worth 261 trillion Gallants a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,807 Gallants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

A lack of funding for new shows has turned television into 24/7 re-runs, urbanites are banned from bucolic settings for safety concerns, many in The Gallant Old Republic are born in the purple, and legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Gallant Old Republic's national animal is the Carthusian Marmot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is English Ordinariate Catholic Church.

The Gallant Old Republic is ranked 111,812th in the world and 43rd in Right to Life for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -7 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
