The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.664 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 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. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 3,350 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,061 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The official Northern Lightian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, soldiers stream their classified military operations live for millions of fans, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, and political clichés like "band-aid solutions" and "adrenaline shots to the economy" are headed for the dumpster. 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 and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 14,940th in the world and 785th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 74.35 quips per hour.
