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 ban on automobiles, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 11.584 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 1.9%.

The Olden economy, worth 188 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 16,247 Gallants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Glamping Olds won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the dartboard at the Olden Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of King Alfred IV Edgar Oswin Athelstan's face, residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. 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 English Ordinariate Catholic Church.

The Gallant Old Republic is ranked 120,192nd in the world and 8th in Central Pacific Empire for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 26.84 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
