The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Kate Murphy with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.259 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 Stockholm. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Valkyrian economy, worth a remarkable 5,875 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 321,807 Valkyrian vekts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, Qvait is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. 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 208,425th in the world and 8,361st in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -43.17 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
