The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 9.553 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 Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Northern Lightian economy, worth 564 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 59,115 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, auditors are gutting every governmental department, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 55,302nd in the world and 2,860th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 95.31 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
