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 renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 17.439 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, although Environment is also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare are ignored. 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 346 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 19,885 Gallants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 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 9,439th in the world and 15th in Right to Life for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,690.79 Tourists Per Hour.
