New Zealand

Consisting of two main landmasses and several smaller islands in the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand’s nearest neighbours include Australia, New Caledonia, Fiji and Tonga. A constitutional monarchy with a representative of the British crown as effective head of state, New Zealand’s is governed by its unicameral parliament, which appoints a prime minister as head of government. While New Zealand’s human rights record is generally very good, concerns remain about discrimination and lack of access to services for its indigenous population.
