The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Margaret Harrison with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.453 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 4,490 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 290,601 Pacific credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling dibs is an unalienable right, Chancellor Margaret Harrison's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and the world still seems flat to some people in space. 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 koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qvait is ranked 221st in the world and 7th in the South Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 24,012.27 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
