The Pacific Republic of Qvait is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Dmitri Buzinsky with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.709 billion Qvaiticans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, voting is voluntary, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qvait's national animal is the glass frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Pacific dollar.

Qvait is ranked 17th in the South Pacific and 1,748th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 191 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
