A mythical place in the southern Pacific Ocean made of clouds, that was invented by Australians.
Legends that ascribe "New Zealand" to be the birthplace of a variety of Australian celebrities, including Ernest Rutherford, Edmund Hillary, Burt Munro, Russell Crowe, Keith Urban and Sonny Bill Williams, can be traced back to early social engineering attempts undertaken by radical left-wing political movements that are also responsible for a once widely circulated urban myth: that the British couldn't conquer "New Zealand" and so had to sign treaties with the original inhabitants.
Various popular musical bands also claim to be "from New Zealand", such as Crowded House, Fat Freddy's Drop and Flight of the Conchords, though this is usually not part of a crazy belief system, but a clever marketing ploy.
The famous poet and philosopher, Munter, sometimes describes his ancestry as originating in "New Zealand", though this is usually a reference to his earlier work where he disproved the theory of epiphenomenalism.

You can't go to heaven until you've checked out New Zealand first.
The bomb diggity... Home of L&P, V, the Buzzy Bee, Footrot Flats, Jandals, Pavlova, Tip Top ice cream, Fish and Chips, Maketu Pies, Swandris, Paua Shell jewellery, the Silver Fern, beautiful scenery, gazillions of Sheep, Peter Jackson, LOTR, and all the best sportspeople and musicians.
Because of this, a lot of jealous Aussie bastards have claimed 'ownership' of true-blue Kiwi icons, such as Uncle Pete and the Pav.

A pretty darn groovy country which by reputation pushes well above it's weight. Rolling green hills,vast golden beaches ,dramatic volcanic plateau(sp?), snow capped mountains, majestic rainforests, towering fiords-New Zealand personifies diversity, both in appearance and communtity, with a fine mix of Maori (indigenous people), Pakeha( White people), Pacific islanders and and many more. People are reputedly amoungst the freindliest in the world and as said the lifestyle easy very chilled-although it has to be said the stereotype of kiwis being backwards is a complete myth. As a nation we're thoroughly commited, hard working, open minded and optimistic. Yes, we have a habit of travelling and extending our OE as it were but in hindsight we're not the bad
Tis also known to be the neighbour of Australia, and contrary to all the crap posted on this page, the anzac alliance still holds strong yet some people take this 'freindly squabbling' to extremities.
Being a kiwi ain't so bad infact it aint so bad at all.....I love New Zealand
