The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.344 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic 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 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Northern Lightian economy, worth a remarkable 2,156 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 174,672 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, and 'McMasterdonian Lionnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie. 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 208,599th in the world and 12,062nd in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.7 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
