The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.703 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.6%.

The powerhouse Northern Lightian economy, worth 927 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 95,576 Pacific Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, misbehaving McMasterdonian Lions deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, and boom-and-bust cycles are being peddled as economically inevitable. 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 122,357th in the world and 6,356th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 18.3 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
