The Empire of Tangatarehua is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Tamahine o te Marama with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.408 billion Tangata Rehua 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tamaki. The average income tax rate is 36.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Rehuan economy, worth 199 trillion kohatus a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,525 kohatus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Tangatarehua, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, and teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tangatarehua's national animal is the whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tikanga Wairua.

Tangatarehua is ranked 24,329th in the world and 30th in Greater Dienstad for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,316.93 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
