The Ancient Tellurian Union of The Gallant Old Republic is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Alfred IV Edgar Oswin Athelstan with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.521 billion Olds 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winchester. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.

The Olden economy, worth 158 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 15,021 Gallants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random, and the clergy of Anglican Ordinariate Catholicism remains a single-sex institution. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. The Gallant Old Republic's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anglican Ordinariate Catholicism.

The Gallant Old Republic is ranked 51,600th in the world and 4th in Central Pacific Empire for Highest Crime Rates, with 8.21 Crimes Per Hour.
