The New Imperialistic Power of The Islands of Tonga is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kalasia Tupou IX with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.053 billion Tongans 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, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Faka'naki. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Tongan economy, worth 135 trillion Tola 'as a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,473 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, engineers preemptively order lawyers after every power cut, every fourth child is born with flippers instead of hands, and dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws. 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, and its national religion is Free Wesleyan Church.

The Islands of Tonga is ranked 100,965th in the world and 5,511th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 41.22 on the Rand Index.
