The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Stella Kaufman with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.317 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 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 4,922 trillion Pacific credits 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 301,649 Pacific credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, saying "don't do anything that Chancellor Stella Kaufman wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 koala, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Qvait is ranked 515th in the world and 24th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 115,064 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
