The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Kate Murphy with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.058 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, outspoken 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 6,795 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 338,776 Valkyrian vekts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn. 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 147,013th in the world and 5,188th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 296.23 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
