The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.361 billion TNPers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 56.4%.

The Northern Lightian economy, worth 559 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 59,742 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, foreign musicians that The North Pacific Delegate dislikes are turned away at the border, journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, and Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community. 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 35,786th in the world and 2,089th in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 16.29 Average Smiles Per Day.
