The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 9.886 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Northern Lightian economy, worth 993 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,512 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, the Treasury Minister takes anxiety medication every time kids lose their sports kits, and burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 25,430th in the world and 1,053rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,701.27 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
