Die Wirtschaft von Tonga durchlebt, wie andere Südpazifik-Staaten auch, eine schwierige Phase. Großbauern aus anderen Ländern und riesige Fischfangflotten machen dem Land auf dem Markt Konkurrenz. Zudem ist der Tourismus nur mangelhaft ausgebaut. Die meisten Produkte des täglichen Lebens müssen importiert werden. Das Land exportiert tropische Früchte, auch Vanille. Tonga hat ein gut ausgestattetes Erziehungssystem, das freien Zugang zu Bildung ermöglicht. Für alle Kinder bis zum zwölften Lebensjahr besteht Schulpflicht, die Gebühren für weiterführende Schulen sind gering und es gibt Stipendien für eine weitere Ausbildung im Ausland. Die Alphabetisierungsrate beträgt 98 %, universitäre Abschlüsse sind verbreitet.
Die Tongaische Sprache gehört zu den polynesischen Sprachen, die ein Zweig der austronesischen Sprachen sind. Fiji has a population of about 870,000 people (in 2015), almost three-quarters of the population live on the island of Viti Levu where also the country's capital Suva is located. Spoken languages are English (official), iTaukei (Fijian) and Fiji Hindi Fiji for first-timers: how to choose an island. Celeste Brash. Lonely Planet Writer. 18 December 2019. Fiji is blessed with so much turquoise water, white sand beaches, jungle rivers and authentic culture that it almost seems unfair. Whether you're looking for a decadent resort, family getaway or backpacker adventure, these islands have it all Cricket is a minor sport in Fiji. Cricket Fiji is an Associate member of the International Cricket Council ("ICC").
In addition to the university, Fiji also has teacher-training colleges, as well as medical, technological, and agricultural schools. Primary school teachers are trained for two years, whereas secondary school teachers train for three years; they then have the option to receive a diploma in education or read for a bachelor's degree in arts or science and continue for an additional year to earn a postgraduate certificate of education. Es gibt archäologische Meinungen, dass die ersten Siedler von den Santa-Cruz-Inseln im Zuge einer um 3000 v. Chr. beginnenden Völkerwanderung aus Südostasien über Mikronesien nach Tonga gekommen sind. Auf Tonga wurden die bisher ältesten Fundstücke dieser Lapita-Kultur in Form der charakteristischen Keramikgegenstände freigelegt, die auf 800 bis 750 v. Chr. datiert werden. Die Angehörigen dieser Kultur lebten, segelten, handelten, bekriegten sich und heirateten zwischen den Inseln, die heute zu Samoa, Fidschi oder eben Tonga gehören, für ungefähr tausend Jahre, bevor weitere Entdecker und schließlich Siedler nach den Marquesas und Tahiti und anschließend zu weiteren Inseln des Südpazifiks aufbrachen. Aus diesem Grunde werden Tonga, Samoa und Fidschi von Anthropologen als die Wiege der polynesischen Kultur bezeichnet. Fiji is also legendary for its friendly and welcoming indigenous culture and the cultural contributions from generations of South Asians who also call these islands home. On Viti Levu, it's not uncommon to visit a rustic village for a kava-drinking ceremony and see traditional dances by day, then by night eat Indian roti bread and curry and. Bei der Rangliste der Pressefreiheit 2017, welche von Reporter ohne Grenzen herausgegeben wird, belegte Tonga Platz 49 von 180 Ländern. Am 15. Juni 1972 legte König Taufaʻahau Tupou IV. fest, dass das Nördliche und das Südliche Minerva-Riff (Teleki Tokelau und Teleki Tonga) und alle Gebiete in einem Umkreis von zwölf Seemeilen ebenfalls zum Hoheitsgebiet Tongas gehören. Beide Riffe liegen etwa bei 23° 39' südlicher Breite und 179° westlicher Länge südwestlich der im Süden Tongas liegenden Insel ʻAta.

Students passing the exam then follow a three-year course that leads to the Fiji School Leaving Certificate and the opportunity to attend senior secondary school. At the end of this level, they may take the Form VII examination, which covers four or five subjects. Successful completion of this process gains students access to higher education.
Press release Sir Hercules Robinson was replaced as Governor of Fiji in June 1875 by Sir Arthur Hamilton Gordon. Gordon was immediately faced with an insurgency of the Qalimari and Kai Colo people. In early 1875, colonial administrator Edgar Leopold Layard, had met with thousands of highland clans at Navuso in Viti Levu to formalise their subjugation to British rule and the Christian religion. Layard and his delegation managed to spread the measles epidemic to the highlanders, causing mass deaths in this population. As a result, anger at the British colonists flared throughout the region and a widespread uprising quickly took hold. Villages along the Sigatoka River and in the highlands above this area refused British control and Gordon was tasked with quashing this rebellion.
According to the Fiji Bureau of Statistics, most visitors arriving to Fiji on a short-term basis are from the following countries or regions of residence: The Cibi (pronounced Thimbi) war dance was traditionally performed by the Fiji rugby team before each match. It was replaced in 2012 with the new "Bole" (pronounced mBolay) war cry. Rotuma Rotuma is an island in Fiji. Although it lies approximately 465 km to the north of the Fiji Islands, its culture is much more in common with Polynesian Tonga and Samoa than Melanesian Fiji. Photo: Wikimedia, CC0
Fiji was only peripherally involved in World War I. One memorable incident occurred in September 1917 when Count Felix von Luckner arrived at Wakaya Island, off the eastern coast of Viti Levu, after his raider, SMS Seeadler, had run aground in the Cook Islands following the shelling of Papeete in the French territory of Tahiti. On 21 September, the district police inspector took a number of Fijians to Wakaya, and von Luckner, not realising that they were unarmed, unwittingly surrendered. Fiji consists of 332 islands (of which 106 are inhabited) and 522 smaller islets. The two most important islands are Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, which account for about three-quarters of the total land area of the country. The islands are mountainous, with peaks up to 1,324 metres (4,341 ft), and covered with thick tropical forests. In addition to the blackbirded labour from other Pacific islands, thousands of people indigenous to the Fijian archipelago were also sold into slavery on the plantations. As the white settler backed Cakobau government, and later the British colonial government, subjugated areas in Fiji under its power, the resultant prisoners of war were regularly sold at auction to the planters. This not only provided a source of revenue for the government, but also dispersed the rebels to different, often isolated islands where the plantations were located. The land that was occupied by these people before they became slaves was then also sold off for additional revenue. An example of this is the Lovoni people of Ovalau island, who after being defeated in a war with the Cakobau government in 1871, were rounded up and sold off to the settlers at £6 per head. Two thousand Lovoni men, women and children were sold and their period of slavery lasted five years. Likewise, after the Kai Colo wars in 1873, thousands of people from the hill tribes of Viti Levu were sent to Levuka and sold into slavery. Warnings from the Royal Navy stationed in the area that buying these people was illegal were largely given without enforcement and the British consul in Fiji, Edward Bernard Marsh, regularly turned a blind eye to this type of labour trade.
. An airstrip was built at Nadi (later to become an international airport), and gun emplacements studded the coast. Fijians gained a reputation for bravery in the Solomon Islands campaign, with one war correspondent describing their ambush tactics as "death with velvet gloves". Corporal Sefanaia Sukanaivalu, of Yucata, was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross, as a result of his bravery in the Battle of Bougainville. The northern campaign against the Kai Colo in the highlands was similar but involved removing the rebels from large, well protected caves in the region. Knollys managed to clear the caves "after some considerable time and large expenditure of ammunition". The occupants of these caves included whole communities and as a result many men, women and children were either killed or wounded in these operations. The rest were taken prisoner and sent to the towns on the northern coast. The chief medical officer in British Fiji, William MacGregor, also took part both in killing Kai Colo and tending to their wounded. After the caves were taken, the Kai Colo surrendered and their leader, Bisiki, was captured. Various trials were held, mostly at Nasaucoko under Le Hunte, and 32 men were either hanged or shot including Bisiki, who was killed trying to escape. The Fiji Islands developed many dialects, which may be classified in two major branches — eastern and western. Missionaries in the 1840s chose an Eastern dialect, the speech of Bau Island off the southeast coast of the main island of Viti Levu, to be the written standard of the Fijian language. Bau Island was home to Seru Epenisa Cakobau, the chief who eventually became the self-proclaimed King of Fiji.

The 2017 census found that the population of Fiji was 884,887, compared to the population of 837,271 in the 2007 census. The population density at the time of the 2007 census was 45.8 inhabitants per square kilometre. The life expectancy in Fiji was 72.1 years. Since the 1930s the population of Fiji has increased at a rate of 1.1% per year. The population is dominated by the 15–64 age segment. The median age of the population was 27.9, and the gender ratio was 1.03 males per 1 female. . [Abel Janszoon Tasman; Egon Larsen
In einer Proklamation am 24. August 1887 bestimmte König George Tupou I., dass Tonga zwischen 15° und 23,5° südlicher Breite und 173° und 177° westlicher Länge (aber trotzdem westlich der hier nach Osten ausgebuchteten Datumsgrenze) liegt. The Republic of Fiji Naval Service was formed in 1975, following the government's ratification of the United Nations Law of the Sea convention. The Navy is responsible for maritime needs in border control, such as watching over Fiji's exclusive economic zone and organising task and rescue missions. It currently operates 9 patrol boats. Military aid is received from Australia, the People's Republic of China, and the United Kingdom (although the latter has suspended aid as a result of the 2006 military coup against the civilian government). Am 16. November 2006 brachen in der Hauptstadt Nukuʻalofa Unruhen aus, in deren Folge sechs Personen starben und die Hauptgeschäftsstraße mit mehreren Regierungsgebäuden und fast allen Geschäften der Stadt niederbrannte. Ursache war die Forderung der Demokratiebewegung nach einer demokratischeren Zusammensetzung des Parlaments, die das größtenteils vom König ernannte Kabinett nicht umsetzen wollte. Ziel der Brandanschläge waren in erster Linie indische und chinesische Gewerbetreibende, die der Korruption beschuldigt wurden. Die Geschäfte wurden zunächst geplündert und dann in Brand gesteckt. Durch den herrschenden starken Wind gerieten die Feuer schnell außer Kontrolle, so dass fast die gesamte Innenstadt abbrannte. Die Regierung rief den Ausnahmezustand aus und bat die australische und neuseeländische Regierung um eine Militärintervention. Nachdem sich die Lage Anfang Dezember wieder beruhigt hatte, verließen die 150 ausländischen Soldaten und Polizisten das Königreich wieder. Der Ausnahmezustand wurde mehrmals verlängert und im Februar 2011 außer Kraft gesetzt. Tonga ist in keinem militärischen Bündnis Mitglied, aber es besteht eine enge Zusammenarbeit mit Neuseeland in Verteidigungsfragen. Ein etwa 40 Soldaten umfassendes Kontingent entsandte Tonga 2004 als Teil der Koalitionstruppen in den Irak. Die 2008 im Irak stationierten etwa 50 Soldaten sollten bis zum 20. Dezember 2008 das Land verlassen. Die gesamten Streitkräfte der Tonga Defence Services haben eine Stärke von etwa 450 Mann. Sie sind in die Einheiten Royal Marines, Royal Guards und Maritime Force geteilt, dazu kommen zwei Unterstützungseinheiten. Nach Schätzungen aus dem Jahr 2006 betragen die Ausgaben für das Militär 0,9 % des Bruttoinlandsproduktes. Seit Oktober 2010 ist Tonga an der internationalen Schutztruppe in Afghanistan beteiligt, die aktuelle (2012) Stärke beträgt 55 Mann.
A notorious incident of the blackbirding trade was the 1871 voyage of the brig Carl, organised by Dr James Patrick Murray, to recruit labourers to work in the plantations of Fiji. Murray had his men reverse their collars and carry black books, so to appear to be church missionaries. When islanders were enticed to a religious service, Murray and his men would produce guns and force the islanders onto boats. During the voyage Murray shot about 60 islanders. He was never brought to trial for his actions, as he was given immunity in return for giving evidence against his crew members. The captain of the Carl, Joseph Armstrong, was later sentenced to death. In der Nacht vom 10. auf den 11. September 2006 starb König Tupou IV. im Middlemore Hospital in Auckland, Neuseeland, in dem er schon den größten Teil des Jahres in Behandlung gewesen war. Er wurde 88 Jahre alt und war 41 Jahre lang Regent gewesen. Fiji committed troops to the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq. Australia agreed to transport those troops. A Boeing 707-339 was reportedly used by the Fiji UN ambassadors, it operated in Pakistan International Airlines markings with Royal Fiji Military Forces titles near the front passenger door.
Im Samoa-Vertrag von 1899 verzichtete das Deutsche Reich auf alle Rechte an Tonga und am 18. Mai 1900 wurden die Inseln im Rahmen eines Freundschaftsvertrages zu einem britischen Protektorat. Am 4. Juni 1970 erhielt es seine Unabhängigkeit. Tonga ist ein eigenständiges Mitglied im Commonwealth und seit 1999 auch Mitglied der Vereinten Nationen. Es ist bis heute die einzige (parlamentarische) Erbmonarchie im gesamten polynesischen Pazifikraum. Nadi International Airport also provides an international standard shopping and dining experience for both International and Domestic travellers. Fiji Airports is a fully owned Government Commercial Company established on 12 April 1999 under the Public Enterprise Act, 1996. It operates 15 airports in the Fiji Islands including Nadi and Nausori. Within Fiji, many[who?] argue that the term Fijian refers solely to indigenous Fijians: it denotes an ancestral ethnicity, not a nationality. Constitutionally, citizens of Fiji were previously referred to as "Fiji Islanders" though the term Fiji Nationals was used for official purposes. However, the current constitution refers to all Fijian citizens as "Fijians". In August 2008, shortly before the proposed People's Charter for Change, Peace and Progress was due to be released to the public, it was announced that it recommended a change in the name of Fiji's citizens. If the proposal were adopted, all citizens of Fiji, whatever their ethnicity, would be called "Fijians". The proposal would change the English name of indigenous Fijians from "Fijians" to itaukei, the Fijian language endonym for indigenous Fijians.

Januar 2014 richtete der Zyklon „Ian“ (Stufe 5) als historisch schwerster mit Windgeschwindigkeiten von bis zu 200 km/h (Böen bis zu 287 km/h) schwere Schäden auf Tonga an. Besonders betroffen war laut dem Armeechef die Inselgruppe Haʻapai und deren Hauptinsel Lifuka. With the demand for land high, the white planters started to push into the hilly interior of Viti Levu, the largest island in the archipelago. This put them into direct confrontation with the Kai Colo, which was a general term to describe the various Fijian clans resident to these inland districts. The Kai Colo were still living a mostly traditional lifestyle, they were not Christianised and they were not under the rule of Cakobau or the confederacy. In 1867, a travelling missionary named Thomas Baker was killed by Kai Colo in the mountains at the headwaters of the Sigatoka River. The acting British consul, John Bates Thurston, demanded that Cakobau lead a force of Fijians from coastal areas to suppress the Kai Colo. Cakobau eventually led a campaign into the mountains but suffered a humiliating loss with 61 of his fighters being killed. Settlers also came into conflict with the local eastern Kai Colo people called the Wainimala. John Bates Thurston called in the Australia Station section of the Royal Navy for assistance. The Navy duly sent Commander Rowley Lambert and HMS Challenger to conduct a punitive mission against the Wainimala. An armed force of 87 men shelled and burnt the village of Deoka and a skirmish ensued which resulted in the deaths of over forty Wainimala.
On 5 December 2006, the Fijian army staged a third coup d'état. On 7 February 2008, the head of the RFMF and post-coup interim Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama stated: "Qarase [...] does not understand the role of the Military and as such is misinforming the nation. [...] [I]f there are practices and policies which have potential to undermine the national security and territorial integrity of Fiji, the RFMF has every right under the Constitution to intervene." In August 2009, with Bainimarama still controlling the government as prime minister and the constitution abrogated, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, a former military commander, was appointed acting president on the retirement of Iloilo.

Other Tuka organisations, however, soon appeared. The British were ruthless in their suppression of both the leaders and followers with figureheads such as Sailose being banished to an asylum for 12 years. In 1891, entire populations of villages who were sympathetic to the Tuka ideology were deported as punishment. Three years later in the highlands of Vanua Levu, where locals had re-engaged in traditional religion, the Governor of Fiji, John Bates Thurston, ordered in the Armed Native Constabulary to destroy the towns and the religious relics. Leaders were jailed and villagers exiled or forced to amalgamate into government-run communities. Later, in 1914, Apolosi Nawai came to the forefront of Fijian Tuka resistance by founding a co-operative company that would legally monopolise the agricultural sector and boycott European planters. The company was called the Viti Kabani and it was a hugely successful. The British and their proxy Council of Chiefs were not able to prevent the Viti Kabani's rise and again the colonists were forced to send in the Armed Native Constabulary. Apolosi and his followers were arrested in 1915 and the company collapsed in 1917. Over the next 30 years, Apolosi was re-arrested, jailed and exiled, with the British viewing him as a threat right up to his death in 1946. The Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) is the military force of the Pacific island nation of Fiji.With a total manpower of 3,500 active soldiers and 6,000 reservists, it is one of the smallest militaries in the world, though most of its surrounding island nations have no militaries at all.

In seine Nachfolge trat sein ältester Sohn, Tupoutoʻa, der bis zu seinem Tod am 18. März 2012 unter dem Namen Siaosi (George) Tupou V. regierte. Nach dessen Tod folgte am 19. März 2012 sein Bruder ʻAhoʻeitu ʻUnuakiʻotonga Tukuʻaho unter dem Namen Tupou VI. To further consolidate social control throughout the colony, Governor Gordon introduced a system of appointed chiefs and village constables in the various districts to both enact his orders and report any disobedience from the populace. Gordon adopted the chiefly titles Roko and Buli to describe these deputies and established a Great Council of Chiefs which was directly subject to his authority as Supreme Chief. This body remained in existence until being suspended by the Military-backed interim government in 2007 and only abolished in 2012. Gordon also extinguished the ability of Fijians to own, buy or sell land as individuals, the control being transferred to colonial authorities. The majority of Fiji's islands formed through volcanic activity starting around 150 million years ago. Some geothermal activity still occurs today, on the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni. The geothermal systems on Viti Levu are non-volcanic in origin, with low-temperature (c. 35–60 degrees Celsius) surface discharges. Sabeto Hot Springs near Nadi is a good example. Humans have lived in Fiji since the second millennium BC—first Austronesians and later Melanesians, with some Polynesian influences. Europeans visited Fiji from the 17th century onwards, and, after a brief period as an independent kingdom, the British established the Colony of Fiji in 1874. Fiji operated as a Crown colony until 1970, when it gained independence as the Dominion of Fiji. A military government declared a Republic in 1987 following a series of coups d'état. In a coup in 2006, Commodore Frank Bainimarama seized power. When the High Court ruled the military leadership unlawful in 2009, President Ratu Josefa Iloilo, whom the military had retained as the nominal Head of State, formally abrogated the 1997 Constitution and re-appointed Bainimarama as interim Prime Minister. Later in 2009, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau succeeded Iloilo as President. After years of delays, a democratic election took place on 17 September 2014. Bainimarama's FijiFirst party won 59.2% of the vote, and international observers deemed the election credible. Fiji competes in the Pacific Tri-Nations and the IRB Pacific Nations Cup. The sport is governed by the Fiji Rugby Union which is a member of the Pacific Islands Rugby Alliance, and contributes to the Pacific Islanders rugby union team. At the club level there are the Skipper Cup and Farebrother Trophy Challenge. A series of compromises led to the establishment of a cabinet system of government in 1967, with Ratu Kamisese Mara as the first Chief Minister. Ongoing negotiations between Mara and Sidiq Koya, who had taken over the leadership of the mainly Indo-Fijian National Federation Party on Patel's death in 1969, led to a second constitutional conference in London, in April 1970, at which Fiji's Legislative Council agreed on a compromise electoral formula and a timetable for independence as a fully sovereign and independent nation within the Commonwealth. The Legislative Council would be replaced with a bicameral Parliament, with a Senate dominated by Fijian chiefs and a popularly elected House of Representatives. In the 52-member House, Native Fijians and Indo-Fijians would each be allocated 22 seats, of which 12 would represent Communal constituencies comprising voters registered on strictly ethnic roles, and another 10 representing National constituencies to which members were allocated by ethnicity but elected by universal suffrage. A further 8 seats were reserved for "General electors" – Europeans, Chinese, Banaban Islanders, and other minorities; 3 of these were "communal" and 5 "national". With this compromise, Fiji became independent on 10 October 1970.
Who we are. 1871 saw the birth of postal services in Fiji and the passing of the Cakobau Postal Act. 148 years and three major restructures later, Post Fiji prides itself on its multitude of world-class products and services Der überwiegende Teil der Tongaer ist Mitglied einer christlichen Kirche oder Gemeinde. Vorherrschende Konfession (Stand 2011) ist dabei die Wesleyanische Kirche von Tonga (35,5 %), ansonsten unter anderem die Kirche Jesu Christi der Heiligen der Letzten Tage (18 %), römisch-katholische Kirche (15 %), die Free Church of Tonga (11,5 %) und die Church of Tonga (6,7 %). By the 1820s, Levuka was established as the first European-style town in Fiji, on the island of Ovalau. The market for "beche-de-mer" in China was lucrative and British and American merchants set up processing stations on various islands. Local Fijians were utilised to collect, prepare and pack the product which would then be shipped to Asia. A good cargo would result in a half-yearly profit of around $25,000 for the dealer. The Fijian workers were often given firearms and ammunition as an exchange for their labour, and by the end of the 1820s most of the Fijian chiefs had muskets and many were skilled at using them. Some Fijian chiefs soon felt confident enough with their new weapons to forcibly obtain more destructive weaponry from the Europeans. In 1834, men from Viwa and Bau were able to take control of the French ship L'amiable Josephine and use its cannon against their enemies on the Rewa River, although they later ran it aground. A constitutional conference was held in London in July 1965, to discuss constitutional changes with a view to introducing responsible government. Indo-Fijians, led by A. D. Patel, demanded the immediate introduction of full self-government, with a fully elected legislature, to be elected by universal suffrage on a common voters' roll. These demands were vigorously rejected by the ethnic Fijian delegation, who still feared loss of control over natively owned land and resources should an Indo-Fijian dominated government come to power. The British made it clear, however, that they were determined to bring Fiji to self-government and eventual independence. Realizing that they had no choice, Fiji's chiefs decided to negotiate for the best deal they could get. Tonga besteht aus 172 benannten Inseln im Pazifik mit einer Fläche von 747 km². 36 von ihnen mit einer Gesamtfläche von 649 km² sind bewohnt.

Association football was traditionally a minor sport in Fiji, popular largely amongst the Indo-Fijian community, but with international funding from FIFA and sound local management over the past decade, the sport has grown in popularity in the wider Fijian community. It is now the second most-popular sport in Fiji, after rugby (union 15's and union 7's) for men, and after netball for women. Citing corruption in the government, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, staged a military takeover on 5 December 2006 against the prime minister that he had installed after a 2000 coup. There had also been a military coup in 1987. The commodore took over the powers of the presidency and dissolved the parliament, paving the way for the military to continue the takeover. The coup was the culmination of weeks of speculation following conflict between the elected prime minister, Laisenia Qarase, and Commodore Bainimarama. Bainimarama had repeatedly issued demands and deadlines to the prime minister. A particular issue was previously pending legislation to pardon those involved in the 2000 coup. Bainimarama named Jona Senilagakali as caretaker prime minister. The next week Bainimarama said he would ask the Great Council of Chiefs to restore executive powers to the president, Ratu Josefa Iloilo.
The main towns on Vanua Levu are Labasa and Savusavu. Other islands and island groups include Taveuni and Kadavu (the third and fourth largest islands, respectively), the Mamanuca Group (just off Nadi) and Yasawa Group, which are popular tourist destinations, the Lomaiviti Group, off Suva, and the remote Lau Group. Rotuma, some 270 nautical miles (500 km; 310 mi) north of the archipelago, has a special administrative status in Fiji. Ceva-i-Ra, an uninhabited reef, is located about 250 nautical miles (460 km; 290 mi) southwest of the main archipelago.

Tonga ist eine parlamentarische Monarchie, in der die Verfassung dem König größere Befugnisse einräumt als beispielsweise dem niederländischen Monarchen. Der Respekt vor der königlichen Herrschaft existiert noch weitgehend unverändert wie in vergangenen Jahrhunderten, damals gegenüber dem als heilig erachteten obersten Häuptling Tuʻi Tonga. Kritik an der Monarchie wird als untongaisch und schlicht unhöflich abgelehnt. König Taufaʻahau Tupou IV., ein direkter Nachfahre des ersten Königs, lebte bis zu seinem Tod am 10. September 2006 mit seiner Familie, einigen einflussreichen Adligen sowie der wachsenden nicht-adligen Elite in relativem Reichtum. Die restliche Bevölkerung ist jedoch vergleichsweise arm. Die Auswirkungen dieser Ungleichheit werden durch drei Faktoren abgemildert: Bildung, medizinische Versorgung und Landbesitz. To celebrate the annexation of Fiji, Hercules Robinson, who was Governor of New South Wales at the time, took Cakobau and his two sons to Sydney. There was a measles outbreak in that city and the three Fijians all came down with the disease. On returning to Fiji, the colonial administrators decided not to quarantine the ship that the convalescents travelled in. This was despite the British having a very extensive knowledge of the devastating effect of infectious disease on an unexposed population. In 1875–76 the resulting epidemic of measles killed over 40,000 Fijians, about one-third of the Fijian population. Some Fijians who survived were of the opinion that this failure of quarantine was a deliberate action to introduce the disease into the country. Whether this is the case or not, the decision, which was one of the first acts of British control in Fiji, was at the very least grossly negligent.

These movements were called Tuka, which roughly translates as "those who stand up". The first Tuka movement, was led by Ndoongumoy, better known as Navosavakandua which means "he who speaks only once". He told his followers that if they returned to traditional ways and worshipped traditional deities such as Degei and Rokola, their current condition would be transformed with the whites and their puppet Fijian chiefs being subservient to them. Navosavakandua was previously exiled from the Viti Levu highlands in 1878 for disturbing the peace and the British quickly arrested him and his followers after this open display of rebellion. He was again exiled, this time to Rotuma where he died soon after his 10-year sentence ended.

In 2005, the Qarase government amid much controversy proposed a Reconciliation and Unity Commission with power to recommend compensation for victims of the 2000 coup and amnesty for its perpetrators. However, the military, especially the nation's top military commander, Frank Bainimarama, strongly opposed this bill. Bainimarama agreed with detractors who said that to grant amnesty to supporters of the present government who had played a role in the violent coup was a sham. His attack on the legislation, which continued unremittingly throughout May and into June and July, further strained his already tense relationship with the government. Bei der Wahl gewann die aus der Demokratiebewegung hervorgegangene Demokratische Partei der Freundschaftsinseln zwölf der 17 Parlamentssitze, die für Abgeordnete des allgemeinen Volks vorgesehen sind. Die restlichen neun Sitze sind für Adlige reserviert. Ende Juli 2008 gab König Tupou V. bekannt, er wolle seine absolute Macht aufgeben und die Tagesgeschäfte dem Parlament und der Exekutive überlassen. Dies wurde mit den Wahlen vom 25. November 2010 umgesetzt, sodass Premierminister und Kabinettsangehörige nunmehr vom Parlament statt wie bisher durch den König bestimmt werden.
