    New Zealand-icon.png New Zealandball, sometimes known as Kiwi land or NZball, as well as Aotearoaball by Maori & other aboriginal advocates, is a countryball that is sometimes forgotten in world maps southeast of Australia-icon.png Australiaball. It 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. It owns a pet kiwi and is known for the Lord of the Rings films, Power Rangers, Korg 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, It can still be a fierce warrior and a sheep shagger. It often gets mixed up with Australia-icon.png Australiaball. Other countryballs, especially America, often confuse it with Australia. It's been planned for a while to change its 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 it is an emerging power, which isn't the same as a potential superpower.

    It 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. It 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[edit | edit source]

    Pre Colonization[edit | edit source]

    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[edit | edit source]

    In 1642, Netherlands-icon.png Netherlandsball was sailing across the Pacific Ocean, when it finally spotted land, but before it came ashore it was attacked by Maori-icon.png Maoriball and quickly left after finding four of its 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 it sold wood for ships and garden produce in trade for muskets, which unfortunately broke out in many musket wars between Maori tribes.

    Colonization[edit | edit source]

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

    World War I[edit | edit source]

    As soon as UK-icon.png Britain declared war on German Empire-icon.png German Empireball, New Zealandball found itself fighting in Europe. In 1915, New Zealandball teamed with its sibling 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, it landed on the wrong beach and was shot and badly injured. Now it and Australia have ANZAC day [25th of April] to mourn WW1 and WW2 deaths of ANZAC soldiers.

    The 1920s, Great Depression, And First Labour Goverment[edit | edit source]

    After World War One, New Zealandball signed the Treaty of Versailles and joined the League of Nations-icon.png League Of Nations, and made ANZAC day a National Holiday. Life remained fine for it 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[edit | edit source]

    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 its soldiers crash in its 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[edit | edit source]

    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 its 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 its own form of civil rights were just around the corner from there. It might have been the least to suffer from the Vietnam war.

    Flag Colours[edit | edit source]

    Basically the same colours as the UK-icon.png UKball's[1] shown below:

    Colour Name RGB CMYK HEX
    Royal Blue 1, 33, 105 C100-M85-Y5-K22 #012169
    White 255, 255, 255 N/A #FFFFFF
    Lava 200, 16, 46 C2-M100-Y85-K6 #C8102E
