Nowhere near enough information.
If North had to make one and only one more bid, 3 comes into the picture. But that is not the case, he can bid 2 comfortably knowing that South (his partner) is still there. Only South, for whatever reason, decided not to bid his hand, so in ...
Assess the Blame

The Alert Procedures says: "Alerts given after the auction is completed for Alertable [b]calls[/b] above the level of 3NT starting with the opening bidder’s second turn to call." The Alert Chart says: "[b]Bids[/b] above the level of 3NT, beginning with and including opener’s first ...
Believe (hope) this is link to original bidding poll: As of now 37 votes, 1 of which for 2, 1 of which for 3.

"...would be an overbid..." I disagree, South's hand is already boxed (having responded 1N), South can be confident the K is working, South has 5(!) card support. South's 3 bid could be based on a much worse hand.
Create: General Poll, answers...
Normally there's some way to vote... I don't like 3, 2 (or even 2) would be better.
