Location: The North Pacific

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 enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.461 billion TNPers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,627 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,221 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, and foreign musicians that The North Pacific Delegate dislikes are turned away at the border. 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 6,437th in the world and 311th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 143.51 Kickbacks Per Hour.
