About New Zealand

Facts about New Zealand

New Zealand seems like a type of country created by students, for students.

With almost no regard for rules and traditions, New Zealand seems like the country where the phrase “There are no bad ideas” was taken to heart, and where they started doing things just because they can. For instance:

  • New Zealand broadcasted the first weather report in Elvish language in 2012. You can probably assume that nobody was there to tell them not to do it.
  • The logo of the Royal New Zealand Air Force is the Kiwi, a flightless bird;
  • There is a law that states every high school in New Zealand may hold one pound of uranium and one pound of thorium, for conducting nuclear experiments. Still, they will be fined 850.000 EUR if they cause a nuclear explosion.

Now, looking on the other side of the argument “we can create our own laws and do whatever we want in New Zealand”, we can find some of the best and most progressive things to ever happen in the world right in here. That’s why:

  • One of the three official languages of New Zealand is Sign Language (awesome!);
  • In 1893, New Zealand became the first country to give women the right to vote (awesomer!);
  • In 1990, New Zealand became the first country in the modern world to appoint an Official National Wizard (awesomest!).

And, because the internet is full of amazing facts about New Zealand, here are three I couldn’t figure out how to connect, but which you should definitively know and that will make you smile instantly. These are:

  • There are 9 sheep per each person in New Zealand, making it the highest ratio in the world;
  • In 2006, the Queen, the Governor-General, the PM, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Chief Justice were all women, making New Zealand the only country in the world (to date) where all the highest positions have been simultaneously held by women;
  • In 2006, an Australian citizen tried to sell New Zealand on eBay, starting from 0.01 EUR and managing to reach 2.018 EUR before eBay closed the auction.
