New Zealand is comprised of two main islands, the South Island and the North Island, as well as a number of other smaller islands. Based in the Southwest Pacific (across the Tasmanian Sea from Australia) it's capital city is Wellington and it's largest city Auckland.
Most New Zealanders are of European descent and the languages spoken are Maori & English. With a population of just 4.4 million, New Zealand is a largely unspoiled country and is one of the youngest settled countries on the planet.
