Living in Tonga
The Kingdom of Tonga is a state comprising 169 islands. The state’s 100,000 residents only inhabit 36 of these islands. 7 of 10 Tongans live on the main island of Tongatapu. In recent years, Tonga has sought to grow its relationships with east Asian countries, as well as maintaining its strong existing links with Oceania. In terms of its economy, Tonga does not offer a great deal; most of its income actually comes from remittances from its foreign workers in Australia and New Zealand primarily. The country is also very corrupt, with the Tongan royal family being the main protagonists. Agriculture employs most of the Tongan population, growing produce such as exotic fruits, cocoa and vanilla. Tonga has a severe obesity problem, and 9 of 10 adults in the country on average are considered overweight. However, given that many South Pacific islands have similar obesity problems, this should be seen as more of a cultural issue rather than directly a result of poor healthcare. Nearly all of the Tongan population are literate. Rugby union is the national sport of the country, and the national team regularly qualifies for the Rugby World Cup. However, they are yet to make it to the final knockout rounds of the tournament despite coming close in 2007 and 2011.
