The Imperial Democracy of The Islands of Tonga is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Hefia Tupou XV with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 4.212 billion Tongan's 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 Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kava Lund. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tongan economy, worth 613 trillion Tola 'as a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 145,734 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, home renovation shows are increasingly popular, and the sparkling rainbow has become a symbol of far-right extremism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Islands of Tonga's national animal is the Pacific golden plover, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Free Wesleyan Church.

The Islands of Tonga is ranked 14,852nd in the world and 722nd in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 28.72 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
