New Zealandball , sometimes known simply as NZball,is a countryball that is sometimes forgotten in world maps southeast of Australia-icon.png Australiaball. She is the daughter and former colony of UK-icon.png UKball and the sister of Australia-icon.png Australiaball, Canada-icon.png Canadaball, and USA-icon.png USAball. She does not exist owns a pet kiwi and is known for the Lord of the Rings films, Power Rangers and being the Adventure Capital of the World. New Zealand has 3 children: Niue, Tokelau, and the Cook Islands-icon.png Cook Islands. Even though New Zealand is known for being a peaceful, caring nation, she used to be can still be a fierce warrior and a sheep shagger. She often gets mixed up with Australia-icon.png Australiaball. Other countryballs, especially America, often confuse her with Australia. It's been planned for a while to change her flag, as many consider the UK Flag symbol in the corner to be a "dated symbol," but many still prefer the original flag. Some people are saying she is an emerging power, which isn't the same as a potential superpower.

She used to be part of a sunken continent named Zealandia, which had split from Australia-icon.png Australiaball 80 million years ago but is blub 20 million years ago, so New Zealand is now much smaller. She harbours the Taupo supervolcano that can kill Earth-icon.png Earthball if it erupts, and has an even deadlier explosion radius than Yellowstone's.

History

Pre Colonization

Some time in the 12th century, the Maori-icon.png Maori, the first inhabitants of New Zealandball, lived on a series of small islands called 7-icon.png Polynesiaball after sailing from Asia. Unfortunately, they began to run low on food supplies and set sail in search of new land and space to expand, and after months of sailing they landed on what was the coast of New Zealand. They decided to settle down on this land for what they said looked like a "big cloud." They considered it a good omen, and so eventually settled down there, taking care of its natural beauty and resources. They collected fruit.

But eventually, exploration of this new land instead of the sea became too enticing for the once sea-faring people; Maori engaged into constant tribal warfare and became very warlike, like their old ways. Fighting over land and regions and taking prisoners as slaves from enemy tribes, or "Iwi," became their new instincts. They prayed to their dead ancestors, since they considered some of them to be sacred. These sacred people are called "tapu", or taboo. Consuming the flesh of their enemies, as part of their culture, was considered as gaining their "Mana".

European arrival

In 1642, Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball was sailing across the Pacific Ocean, when he finally spotted land, but before he came ashore he was attacked by Maori-icon.png Maoriball and quickly left after finding four of his crewmen strewn in pieces on the coastline, being eaten. In 1769 England-icon.png Englandball landed on shore and made peaceful contact with Maori-icon.png Maoriball, and after the France-icon.png French arrived. New Zealand's had rich resources, so he sold wood for ships and garden produce in trade for muskets, which unfortunately broke out in many musket wars between Maori tribes.

Colonization

In the 18th century, UK-icon.png UKball was getting quite worried about the land he had taken from the Maori and feared France-icon.png Franceball might annex New Zealand, so in 1840 he had Maori-icon.png Maoriball sign the Treaty of Waitangi, which gave him full control of New Zealand and also made it compulsory for New Zealand to fight alongside UK-icon.png UKball. New Zealandball was officially born. She then proved to UK-icon.png UKball his loyalty to her by helping him fight South Africa in the Boer war, and UK-icon.png UKball was very impressed with how well she was fighting. NZ did feel good for helping her dad but was heartbroken over the fact that the UK made her burn the South African villages and farms. From then on, New Zealand became an independent dominion in 1907.

World War I

As soon as UK-icon.png Britain declared war on German Empire-icon.png German Empireball, New Zealandball found himself fighting in Europe. In 1915, New Zealandball teamed with her brother Australia-icon.png Australiaball to form the ANZACS, and went to war against Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball. Unfortunately, on the day of the attack, she landed on the wrong beach and was shot. Now she and australia have ANZAC day [25th of april] to mourn ww1 and ww2 deaths of ANZAC soldiers. [probably]

The 1920s, Great Depression, And First Labour Goverment

After World War One, New Zealandball signed the Treaty of Versilles and joined the League of Nations-icon.png League Of Nations, and made ANZAC day a National Holiday. Life remained fine for him until the Wall Street Crash in USA-icon.png USAball in 1929, and like most, New Zealandballs economy was decreasing immensely. A huge earthquake also hit Hawkes Bay in 1931. The people of New Zealand finally had enough of the Depression, and in 1935, the First Labour Government under this guy won the elections. Now, New Zealand's economy is prospering much better than it was in the past. They would soon celebrate their 100th anniversary in 1940, but in 1939, The UK-icon.png United Kingdomball declared war on Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball starting WW2, so New Zealand, along with Australia-icon.png Australiaball, also went to war against Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germany.

The Second World War, And Full Independence

During New Zealand's and Australia's war against the Nazis and the Italians in North Africa and Crete, USA-icon.png USAball offered New Zealand a deal: let his soldiers crash in her clay in return for protection against Japan, whom was already coming in close and New Zealand had already declared war on. New Zealand accepted the offer. New Zealand-icon.png New Zealandball and the USA-icon.png United States became great friends because of this. After the war, New Zealand also accepted many Jew-icon.png Jews and Poland-icon.png Poles into their land as refugees, though Australia-icon.png Australiaball accepted far more. They finally become fully independent in 1947. In 1949, the first National Government was elected.

The 1950s, Nuclear Testing, And Vietnam

New Zealandball hosted the 1950 English-icon.png Commonwealth Games in Auckland, sent troops to the Korean War in South Korea-icon.png South Korea's side, sent Soldiers to help Malaysia against the communists, and in 1953, suffered a train wreck. One of her biggest achievements was being the first to climb the top of Mt. Everest with Nepal-icon.png Nepalrawr. New Zealand, during this time, also became less maintained with UK-icon.png UKball.​​​ They soon started bringing newer immigrants mainly from Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball. During the 60s, New Zealand-icon.png New Zealandball started to get pissed with constant nuclear testing, and sent solders to the war in Vietnam, and her own form of civil rights were just around the corner from there. She might have been the least to suffer from the Vietnam war.

Relationships/Whanaungatanga

Friends/Mates (E hoa ma)

Stereotypes

  • One stereotype of New Zealand is that it doesn't exist. New Zealand is a country that is routinely distorted on maps, often being situated on one certain corner, or occasionally not situated anywhere at all.
  • One stereotype is that New Zealand is 'where men are men, and so are the women'. For being masculine.
  • Another is that New Zealand speaks a strange language (to be fair, their accent does sound unusual).
  • New Zealand is stereotyped for being the best in the world at rugby. And why wouldn't we be? We won the world cup three times!
  • Lord of the Rings. Enough said.
  • New Zealand is also known for being the reason that the small islands of Oceania are not being annexed, in fact New Zealand pretty much decide whether they live or die, as he is one of the few countries that actually give a crap about them (the others are Indonesia, the Philippines, Madagascar and Malaysia). 
  • BUSH RECEPTION. Even internet.
  • Auckland Vs. Rest of New Zealand. Aucklanders are seen as rich snobs or immigrants. The rest of NZ are thought of as Farmers, Bush people or Bogans.
  • Ride a lot of Motorcycles and old cars. Especially Toyota utes and Holdens.
