The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, devout population of 9.935 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Northern Lightian economy, worth 999 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,557 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, and Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 33,959th in the world and 1,711th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,617.09 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
