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 compulsory military service, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 12.37 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, 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. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,147 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,595 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Magicality City Times is sold out, all children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense, and military pistols are more secure than the national treasury. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 57,998th in the world and 3,303rd in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 947.49 milliStalins.
