The New Oseanic Imperial Power of The Islands of Tonga is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alefosio Tupou X with an iron fist, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.219 billion Tongans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faka'naki. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Tongan economy, worth 172 trillion Tola 'as a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,648 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Alefosio Tupou X, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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, and its national religion is Free Wesleyan Church.

The Islands of Tonga is ranked 14,272nd in the world and 540th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 65.85 Kickbacks Per Hour.
