The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, enslaved workforce, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.414 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 54.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,834 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 196,640 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

It's rare to find an unchewed pencil, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, and dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies. 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 4,633rd in the world and 162nd in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 6,450.82 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
