The Pan-Nordic Arcology Needle of Proxmire is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Fylkja Cenwalh with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.249 billion Vikings 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 large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Torpenhow. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Viking economy, worth 572 trillion Kroner 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 134,674 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Krone mansions, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime is totally unknown. Proxmire's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Norse.

Proxmire is ranked 12,155th in the world and 136th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.27 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
