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 public floggings, enslaved workforce, and frequent executions. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 11.608 billion TNPers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 1,887 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 162,601 Pacific Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, the army insists there is nothing gay about men in uniforms rolling in the mud, the government is spending billions of taxpayer Pacific Dollars to support "struggling" industries, and all beauty contests have been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 35,276th in the world and 1,628th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 9.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
