The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory vegetarianism, and compulsory military service. The hard-working population of 9.1 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 42.6%.

The strong Northern Lightian economy, worth 506 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 55,692 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Vegetarianism is compulsory, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Pacific Dollars each year, surveillance cameras are banned, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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.

The Northern Light is ranked 21,962nd in the world and 431st in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 9.10 billion Capita.
