The New Constitutional Monarchy of The Islands of Tonga is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kalasia Tupou IX with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 880 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 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Tongan economy, worth 103 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 common. Average income is an impressive 117,050 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, and a positive pregnancy test doubles as a visa. 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 76,882nd in the world and 3,890th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 530.96 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
