The Greater Empire of The Islands of Tonga is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Hefia Tupou XV with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 6.004 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 Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kava Lund. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tongan economy, worth 894 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 extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,940 Tola 'as, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

All screens are equal but some are more equal than others, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. 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 Lord Börk.

The Islands of Tonga is ranked 135,466th in the world and 5,162nd in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 188.42 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
