The Commonwealth Republic of the Tabulu Islands, more commonly known as Tabulu or the Tabulu Islands, is a small island nation located in Kristalotodove. Tabulu has a population of 195,312 citizens as of 2018, of which roughly 42,000 live in the national capital of Fort Ka'kua. Tabulu is a federal constitutional presidential republic. The 112 islands that Tabulu controls are divided into 14 provinces, with any city containing a population higher than 20,000 declared a federal territory. In recent years, Tabulu has become a very popular tourist destination, of which Tabulu has used to raise awareness about the climate crisis that would raise the sea level, eventually drowning Tabulu. Education and employment are recognized largely as high priorities of the government, with a literacy rate of 99.8 percent and an employment rate of 3.8 percent. Many workers are employed in the countries' wind energy programmes, as well as working in the tourism industry. Tabulu's foreign relations with most countries are warm, however nations that produce large amounts of non-renewable resources have been often criticized by Tabulu.

Etymology

Tabulu's earliest naming can be traced back to the Tabuluan words for island and moon. "Ta'abu" is the Tabuluan word for island (lit. Ocean Land). "Liu" is the Tabuluan word for crescent, however has been appropriated to mean moon. The Torvonese spelling of Tabulu is "Tabjulu." While Tabulu is the recognized title of the region, many natives of the islands call Tabulu "Fu'lokatu" which translates to homeland. Further, in spite of Tabulu being the official name, Common speakers will often use the word "Tabula" instead of Tabulu, primarily due to naming conventions from the 19th century.
