New Zealand is a country for the rich and wealthy first. What is presented is false. The welfare state is residual and under almost constant attack from right wingers. There is a pervasive feel of self-interest and greed im NZ. A smug self satisfaction is evident. Many of the wealthy live in elite suburbs, for instance, in Christchurch, Merivale or Fendalton. New Zealand has no written constitution.

New Zealand has no written constitution. The most important statutory rights are found in the unentrenched New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990. These so-called rights have been overridden many times by various NZ Parliaments. As such, some have referred to NZ an a 'elective dictatorship'or "thin" democracy. It certainly lacks the rights of Canada. Canada having the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. New Zealand is a great nation 'if' you are rich, if not, watch out

A beautiful country in the South Pacific, approximately 2200kms South-east of the East coast of Australia. Population: 4 million (as of April 28th, 2003).

Advantages: Strong democracy under a proportional voting system; it's not Australia; moderate climate - neither too hot, nor too cold. Beautiful young women and handsome blokes in abundance: healthy indoors / outdoors lifestyle year-round.

Disadvantages: Only 2200kms from Australia.
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.
Aussie: "NZ sucks"
NZer: "What would you know, you kangaroo-fucking outback drongo"

A country made up of two large islands located in the South Pacific. The only question is: Where is the old Zealand?

A girl who is far too sexy to be picked up without a foreign accent. In this case a New Zealand (or Austrailian) accent is required. Once the bomb is dropped she proceeds to allow the accent sporting gentleman to do anything they want to her, including fingering her to orgasm on the dancefloor.
"yo, sean, i got this crazy ass story for you...." (story preceeds to descibe New Zealand)
