The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Margaret Harrison with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.841 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 4,269 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 287,679 Pacific credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. 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 105th in the world and 2nd in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 211.02 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
