About:

New Zealand is an island country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean comprising two main landmasses (the North Island and the South Island) and numerous smaller islands. The geography of New Zealand is highly varies, from snowcapped mountains to lowland plains. The government system is a parliamentary democracy with a Commonwealth realm. The chief of state is the Queen of the United Kingdom and the head of government is the Prime Minister. New Zealand has a free market economy in which the prices of goods and services are determined in a free price system. New Zealand is a member of the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC).

New Zealand is made up of two main islands – the North Island and the South Island, plus Stewart Island and the Chatham Islands. 2000-3000 meter high Southern Alps run down the west coast of the South Island creating numerous fiords and glaciers. It is a compact country and visitors can experience a lot in a short time and within a relatively short distance, due to the diversity of landscape and activities.

About 15% of New Zealand’s population of just over 4 million are of Māori descent and are affiliated to a recognized tribal area. Like many indigenous cultures, Māori lost much of their land through European colonization. Today, although many Māori live in urban areas, away from their tribal regions their marae remains an integral part of their life.

New Zealand has a very unique and dynamic culture. The culture of its indigenous Maori people affects the language, the arts, and even the accents of all New Zealanders. Their place in the South Pacific, and their love of the outdoors, sport, and the arts make New Zealanders and their culture unique in the world.
