The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.425 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 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 3,044 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 frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 197,359 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The media have begun calling the government treasury "The North Pacific Delegate's stash", the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. 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 16,512th in the world and 887th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,240.68 tourists per hour.
