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 complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 9.565 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Northern Lightian economy, worth 565 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 Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 59,076 Pacific Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, and nothing gets the party jumping like The North Pacific Delegate specifying how high. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 164,717th in the world and 8,607th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 7.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
