The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 9.529 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 66.2%.

The strong Northern Lightian economy, worth 720 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 75,631 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried McMasterdonian Lion Dung" has been declared a national treasure, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, foreign leaders who don't applaud The North Pacific Delegate's speeches are regarded as enemies of The Northern Light, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 120,920th in the world and 6,549th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
