The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, devout population of 9.922 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, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 1,033 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 104,185 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, every day's an auto-de-fé day, and medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters. 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 13,445th in the world and 394th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,033 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
