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 smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.424 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tamaki. The average income tax rate is 37.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Rehuan economy, worth 201 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 141,784 kohatus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, there's no representation without taxation, and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". 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 38,476th in the world and 22nd in Greater Dienstad for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 267,194 Standard Monetary Units.
