About New Zealand

About

New Zealand (Maori: Aotearoa) is an island country in the south-western Ocean comprising two main landmasses (the North Island and the South Island) and numerous islands. New Zealand is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy, although its constitution is not codified. Queen Elizabeth II is the Queen of New Zealand. New Zealand has a mild and temperate maritime climate with mean annual temperatures ranging from 10°C (50 °F) in the south to 16°C (61 °F) in the north. New Zealand's geographic isolation for 80 million years and island biogeography is responsible for the country's unique species of flora and fauna.
