The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 9.534 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 66.3%.

The strong Northern Lightian economy, worth 721 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 75,706 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied McMasterdonian Lion. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 11,984th in the world and 554th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.83 Workforce Participation Rate.
