The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.775 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,200 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,245 Pacific Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 643,757 per year while the poor average 32,278, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, glamping TNPers won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 195,332nd in the world and 8,533rd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.2 Obesity Rate.
