The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Margaret Harrison with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.49 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 Law & Order. 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 4,167 trillion Pacific credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 287,598 Pacific credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, lending money has become a major liability, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Qvait's national animal is the spinner dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Qvait is ranked 164,471st in the world and 6,819th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 8.65 Whatever.
