The New Constitutional Monarchy of The Islands of Tonga is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Kalasia Tupou IX with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 847 million Tongans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nukuʻalofa. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Tongan economy, worth 97.6 trillion Tola 'as a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,245 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the new biography of Kalasia Tupou IX is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb", traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Tonga's national animal is the Pacific golden plover, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Islands of Tonga is ranked 147,855th in the world and 7,647th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
