The Empire of Tangatarehua is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Empress Tamahine o te Marama with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.871 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, well-organized 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 33.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Rehuan economy, worth 284 trillion kohatus a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 152,227 kohatus, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hymns sung by popular choirs top the billboard charts, all streets are privately owned toll roads, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. 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 63,586th in the world and 38th in Greater Dienstad for Most Influential, scoring 635 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
