The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.322 billion TNPers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,159 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,251 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, it is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Northern Light's national animal is the McMasterdonian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 8,954th in the world and 463rd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 103,174.57 Standard Monetary Units.
