The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 13.052 billion TNPers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,345 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,686 Pacific Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 555,671 per year while the poor average 44,797, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Magicality City is a police state during international summits, the internet has been placed under government control, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, and high school bands practice by moonlight. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 40,880th in the world and 1,978th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 44,797.48 Standard Monetary Units.
