NZ consists of two major landmasses, ''[[TheTheTitleConfusion the]]'' North Island or Te Ika-a-Māui ("the fish of Māui"[[note]]The name comes from a Maori legend in which demigod Māui, from his South Island canoe, fished the North Island up from the sea. The island's shape does roughly resemble a fish, if UsefulNotes/{{Wellington}} is the head and East Cape and Taranaki are the fins.[[/note]]) and ''the'' South Island or Te Waipounamu ("the waters of greenstone"[[note]]known outside New Zealand as jade[[/note]]), along with a batch of other islands, including the Hauraki Gulf islands near UsefulNotes/{{Auckland}}, including Waiheke Island and Great Barrier Island; the Chatham Islands off to the southeast; and Stewart Island immediately below the South Island. The atoll group of Tokelau, north of Samoa, is a non-self-governing territory of New Zealand. There are also two Pacific Island nations, Niue and the Cook Islands, who are self-governing but are in "free association" with New Zealand, which mostly means that New Zealand manages their external affairs. Cities include UsefulNotes/{{Auckland}} (the largest), UsefulNotes/{{Wellington}} (the capital), Christchurch (the South Island's largest city), Hamilton, Tauranga, the twin cities of Napier and Hastings, Palmerston North, and Dunedin.

Not UsefulNotes/{{Australia}}, the one next to it. The semicolon, or as ''Website/TheOnion'' and Creator/JonStewart called it, "Australia's UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}".[[note]]Culturally, they have a point. Economically, it's more like Australia's UsefulNotes/{{Ireland}}.[[/note]]

[[/note]] Alternatively, given the inhabitants' love of Rugby Union and the significant presence of sheep, "Wales in the South Pacific" may also be a fair description.

Disputed land sales were also the leading cause of the New Zealand Wars, in which British imperial forces and Crown-supporting Maori (kūpapa) fought disenfranchised Maori iwi. Although massively outnumbered (estimates of 18,000 British and kūpapa against a peak of 5,000 Maori) the local Maori were surprisingly (to the British) resilient, making use of fortified villages called pa and guerrilla warfare to vex Imperial forces. This era saw the rise of many colourful and distinct characters such as Te Kooti , a religious leader and warlord who started New Zealand's Ringatū religion (which still exists today, with around 16,000 followers); Hone Heke, who cut down the flagstaff at [[WretchedHive Kororareka]]; and Gustavus von Tempsky, the eccentric adventurer who founded the [[ForestRanger Forest Rangers]].
