The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Kate Murphy with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.913 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 6,713 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 337,138 Valkyrian vekts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and some paycheques only arrive every 12 to 24 weeks. 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 185th in the world and 14th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 8,062.57 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
