Informations

Tonga (; Tongan: [ˈtoŋa] Puleʻanga Fakatuʻi ʻo Tonga), formally named the Kingdom of Tonga, is a Polynesian autonomous state and archipelago comprising 169 islands, of which 36 are inhabited. The complete surface area is about 750 square kilometres (290 sq mi) sprinkled over 700,000 square kilometres (270,000 sq mi) of the southern Pacific Ocean. As of 2016, the state had a population of 100,651 individuals, of whom 70% live on the main island of Tongatapu. Tonga stretches across about 800 kilometres (500 mi) in a north--south line. It's surrounded by Fiji and Wallis and Futuna (France) to the shore, Samoa to the northeast, Niue to the east (which is the nearest foreign territory), Kermadec (part of New Zealand) to the southwest, and New Caledonia (France) and Vanuatu to the further west. It's about 1,800 kilometres (1,100 mi) from New Zealand's North Island. From 1900 to 1970, Tonga had British protected state status, together with the United Kingdom looking after its foreign affairs under a Treaty of Friendship. The country never relinquished its sovereignty to any foreign power. In 2010, Tonga took a critical path towards becoming a constitutional monarchy rather than a traditional complete kingdom, following legislative reforms passed a course for the first partial representative elections.
