'''New Zealand''' ( south of the Pacific island areas (Pacific Islands) of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity (Biodiversity of New Zealand) of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

Today, the majority of New Zealand's population (New Zealanders) of 4.5 million is of European descent (New Zealand European); the indigenous Māori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and Pacific Islanders. Reflecting this, New Zealand's culture (Culture of New Zealand) is mainly derived from Māori and early British settlers, with recent broadening arising from increased immigration (Immigration to New Zealand). The official languages are English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language, with English predominant. The country's economy was historically dominated by the export of wool, but exports of dairy products, meat, and wine, along with tourism, are more significant today.
