About New Zealand

New Zealand (NZ) is an island country in the South Pacific Ocean located about 2000 km (1,300 mi) east of Australia. New Zealand consists of some smaller islands and two main islands, the North Island (Te-Ika-a-Maui), and the South Island (Te Wai Pounamu) which are separated by the Cook Strait. The Realm of New Zealand (a geopolitical entity) comprises New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Niue (an island), Tokelau (some coral atolls) and the Ross Dependency, a region in Antarctica.

New Zealand lies along the collision lines of the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates. The resulting geologic activity has caused volcanic eruptions and earthquakes throughout New Zealand's history. In 2010 and 2011 earthquakes have caused widespread damage in the city of Christchurch, the largest city in the South Island.
With an area of 270,467 km², NZ is slightly bigger than the United Kingdom (242,900 km²), or about the size of the US State of Colorado. New Zealand's main islands are the largest part of land that is emerged from the largely submerged continent of Zealandia.

Spoken languages are English and Maori.
