After her fathers death, Tian Yinling was appointed Queen of Tanjung, promising that she would see Rajia "modernise and prosper into a new age". Tian Yinling's reign has seen increased women's rights in Rajia as well as the right to conscientiously object to military service. However foreign observers have criticised her for the continued persecution of Muslim and Buddhist communities and the increasingly unbalanced wealth distribution in Tanjung.

In 1995 Tian Yinling returned to her family, where she started to act as House Qiao's main press correspondent, representing them and to an extent Tanjung at various diplomatic meetings. In 2001 her brother Jiangtao was killed in a car crash leading the Maharajah to amend the constitution to allow her to become Maharani of Tanjung. Tian Yinling was subsequently formally named heir apparent.

After mild media scrutiny Tian Yinling commented that she "fails to see what the fuss is about...doesn't everyone feel pride towards of their country?"
