New Zealand - Aotearoa New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses – that of the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or Te Waipounamu – and numerous smaller islands.

New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga.

The Realm of New Zealand is an independent and sovereign state in which Queen Elizabeth ll is Queen of New Zealand; who, as head of state, is represented by the Governor-General of New Zealand. New Zealand is one of the sixteen Commonwealth realms for whom Queen Elizabeth II is the reigning constitutional monarch and head of state.

New Zealand has one Antarctic territorial claim, the Ross Dependency; one dependent territory, Tokelau; and two associated states, the Cook Islands and Niue.

The Ross Dependency has no permanent inhabitants, while Tokelau, the Cook Islands and Niue have permanent populations. Tokelau is formally classified as a non-self-governing territory; the Cook Islands and Niue are internally self-governing, with New Zealand retaining responsibility for defence and most foreign affairs. The Governor-General of New Zealand represents the Queen throughout the Realm of New Zealand, though the Cook Islands have an additional Queen's Representative. (Source:Wikipedia - New Zealand)
