Geo Module. How to make nginx to check proxy for any ip?

I mean I haven't got full list of ip addresses that can be proxy, so I want
nginx to look X-FORWARDED-FOR header for any ip address, and if the header
exists to determine geo using the header. If there's no X-Forwarded-For
header, then use ip address for geo.
is it acceptable to use "proxy" ?

for example:

geo $geo {
    default        ZZ;
    proxy;   RU; UK;
