The Valkyrian Republic of Qvait is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Kate Murphy with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.722 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 6,106 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 326,168 Valkyrian vekts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. 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 174th in the world and 8th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 253,919 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
