Ancient Willow Krai was a federal subject of the Tsarist Empire of Gishabrun and subsequently of Gishabrun SAR, Renasia. It was also one of the older krais of Gishabrun.


The name "Ancient Willow" refers to the Ancient Willow National Monument, the main feature of the krai.


The Bench, with a small stick lying on where the boundary of The Unnamed Empire and the Tsarist Empire of Gishabrun was during the Bench War (the smaller part on the left was Gishabruni territory).

On the 20th of July, 2010, HIM Tsar Kuri I claimed an area of 13.5 square metres of land containing an ancient willow tree and a small bench. However, a friend of HIM the Tsar who was traveling with him, namely Cyril I, then Emperor of the Unnamed Empire, disputed the new krai, claiming that the bench was Unnamed territory. This sparked a small conflict called the Bench War. After a few scuffles and fights, the Imperial Army petitioned for a truce and in return gave The Unnamed Empire 5/6ths of the bench (about 1 square metre), while Gishabrun got to keep the rest. The krai was declared a Park (which means tourists may visit it regularly) and the Ancient Willow was declared a National Monument. Eight days later, the Empire captured the entire Bench, which extended the krai to include that area of the Bench.

Ancient Willow Krai was retained as a land claim of Gishabrun SAR in Renasia. It was finally returned to Canadian sovereignty when Gishabrun transitioned to a non-territorial entity, on 5 May 2015.


The climate of what was Ancient Willow Krai is continental (but modified by the nearby river with the Lake Effect), meaning it has an average of -3.5 degrees Celsius in winter, and an average of 22 degrees Celsius in summer, with 133.1 cm of snowfall each winter and 834 mm of percipitation year-round. The area of Ancient Willow Krai is on the edge of a small valley, and has a steep cliff close to the borders. Ancient Willow Krai contained the Ancient Willow National Monument, Ancient Willow Park, and the Bench.
