The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Stella Kaufman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.705 billion Valkyrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stockholm. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Valkyrian economy, worth a remarkable 5,120 trillion Pacific credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 306,502 Pacific credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and third world countries are rich in "I Love Stockholm" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qvait's national animal is the koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Valrissi.

Qvait is ranked 152,808th in the world and 6,144th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -80.56 on the Rand Index.
