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 remarkable for its fear of technology, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 18.71 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 dominated by the Department of Spirituality, with Environment and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't 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 402 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 21,516 Gallants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urbanites are banned from bucolic settings for safety concerns, many in The Gallant Old Republic are born in the purple, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 453rd in the world and 1st in Right to Life for Most Primitive, scoring 320.89 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
