The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 10.073 billion TNPers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 54.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 1,079 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,131 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and homeless people dying of starvation are thought to be a necessary cost of preventing terrorism. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 19,292nd in the world and 803rd in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 50.06 Kickbacks Per Hour.
