The Regional Nation of The Northern Light is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The North Pacific Delegate with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working population of 9.708 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 Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicality City. The average income tax rate is 38.0%.

The thriving Northern Lightian economy, worth 889 trillion Pacific Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 91,586 Pacific Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Flemingovianism.

The Northern Light is ranked 10,154th in the world and 412th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,162.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
