The Pan-Nordic Arcology Needle of Proxmire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fylkja Cenwalh with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.418 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 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Viking economy, worth 598 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 135,463 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, graffiti graces every city's streets, and trespassers entering Fylkja Cenwalh's office are immediately vaporized. 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 173,508th in the world and 151st in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Pro-Market, scoring -68.78 on the Rand Index.
