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 museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 15.4 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 solely concerned with Spirituality. 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 272 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 17,663 Gallants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 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 73,397th in the world and 34th in Right to Life for Most Income Equality, scoring 34.22 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
