The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jarlskona Katja Murphy with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.628 billion Valkyrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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

The frighteningly efficient Valkyrian economy, worth a remarkable 9,843 trillion Valkyrian vekts 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 369,668 Valkyrian vekts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling dibs is an unalienable right, The Pipe Bomb Makers' Pop-Up Book can be found in preschool libraries, people stand their fridges back-to-front to benefit from the free heating, and all the playground's a stage for Valkyrian schoolchildren. 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 blue jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Valrissi.

Qvait is ranked 18,565th in the world and 356th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 49.12 flags saluted per person per day.
