The Corporate Terror Pavilion of Creative Vikings is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Board of Untrustworthy Trustees with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.73 billion Creative Vikings are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Big Boss's Room on the Top Floor. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming a Creative Viking economy, worth 856 trillion Sandwiches a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 110,802 Sandwiches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, and Creative Vikings's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Creative Vikings's national animal is the Office Temp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christmas Partyism.

Creative Vikings is ranked 42nd in Ankh Mauta and 108,645th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
