Tokelau is a territory of New Zealand in the Pacific Ocean that consists of three tropical coral atolls. The United Nations "United Nations General Assembly" General Assembly designated Tokelau a "United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories" Non-Self-Governing Territory. Until 1976, the official name was Tokelau Islands. The New Zealand territory is sometimes referred to by its older colonial name, the Union Islands.

Tokelau annually exports around US$100,000 (€67,000) of "Postage stamp" stamps, copra and woven and carved handicrafts and imports over US$300,000 (€202,000) of foodstuffs, building materials, and fuel to and from, New Zealand. New Zealand also pays directly for the cost of medical and education services. Local industries include small-scale enterprises for copra production, wood work, plaited craft goods, stamps, coins, and fishing. Agriculture and livestock produces coconuts, copra, breadfruitpapayas, bananas, figs, pigs, poultry and a few goats.

Many Tokelauans live in New Zealand and support their families in Tokelau through remittances.

Tokelau has plans to only use renewable energy. If this is achieved it will be the only nation to have achieved this goal. It is expected that by mid-2012 Tokelau's electricity supply will be 93% generated by photovoltaic, with the remainder generated from coconut oil.
