3. geographical position

New Zealand is the size of Colorado. It is separated
from Australia by the Tasman Sea. It consists of two
main islands: the South Island, the North Island, and
a number of smaller islands. The North Island is long
and volcanic in its south central part. New Zealand
has many springs and geysers.

4. geographical position

The South Island has the Southern Alps along
its west coast, with Mount Cook the highest
point. New Zealand has more than 50
volcanoes, some are still active today. Snowy
peaks, rocky shores, and pastures create a
really majestic landscape.

5. political system

The politics of New Zealand function within a framework of
a unitary parliamentary representative democracy. The
structure of government is based on the Westminster
system, and the legal system is modelled on the common
law of England. New Zealand is a constitutional monarchy
in which a hereditary monarch—since 6 February 1952,
Queen Elizabeth II—is the sovereign and head of state.

6. political system

The constitutional framework consists of a mixture of
various documents (including certain Acts of the United
Kingdom and New Zealand Parliaments), the principles of
the Treaty of Waitangi and constitutional conventions.
The Constitution Act 1986 describes the three branches
of government in New Zealand: the executive (the
Sovereign and the Executive Council), the legislature
(Parliament) and the judiciary (Courts)

7. national symbols

The common unofficial national symbols of the country are
the unique kiwi birds and the silver cyatea plant (Cyathea
dealbata), known in everyday New Zealand communication
as the “silver fern”.
Along with the image of a kiwi bird, images of silver fern are
popular and often used in the graphics of New Zealand

13. Animals and birds

The New Zealand wildlife is also unique. Here you
can find a wide variety of birds (many of which are
endemic) - pigeons, kereru, black swans, swallows,
albatrosses, parrots and many other species.
There are practically no small mammals and
snakes in the country - this made it possible for
the development of a huge number of insects.
