New Zealand is located in a region where the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates meet. There are earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but also economically usable geothermal and hot water resources.
Beaches, volcanic mountains, lakes, geysers and thermal springs characterize the North Island. The South Island is dominated by the 360 km long New Zealand Alps with glaciers extending into the sea. In the south are the impressive Fiordland National Park, in the east green alluvial sand plains and the university cities of Christchurch, Dunedin and Lincoln. The highest peak in New Zealand is the Aoraki / Mount Cook (3754 m).
New Zealand has a mild maritime climate. In January and February it is warm (15–20 ° C), in July rather cooler (5–11 ° C). Global warming brings rising mean annual temperatures, causes the soil to dry out and leads to extreme weather conditions. With the Climate Change Act of 2019, New Zealand aims to become CO 2 neutral.
New Zealand’s nature is unique. There are many plant species only here: kauri trees, nikau palms, tree ferns and others. Mangrove forests grow in the subtropical north and tussock grass in the arid regions of the south. Flightless bird species are characteristic of the animal world. The nocturnal kiwi and other native animals are strongly threatened by introduced or introduced species such as possum (a species of marsupial), ermine and rat, which are being fought sustainably. New Zealand has 14 national parks, five of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Tongariro, Westland, Aoraki / Mount Cook, Mount Aspiring and Fjordland.

Population and Religion
New Zealand has (2019) 4.9 million residents. New Zealand’s population grew rapidly at the beginning of the 21st century because the state encouraged labor immigration. Various measures regulate and reduce immigration.
Immigration is changing the ethnic composition of the population. Formerly mostly British, today only 64% of the population are of European origin, 17% Māori and 15% from China, India, the Philippines and other countries. In 2018 the population density was 18 residents / km 2, in Germany over ten times as many people live in one square kilometer. Almost 90% of the population live in cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. The official languages are English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language.
Māori have been socially and politically equal since 1987. Yet unemployment is higher among them than among the Pākehā. The Māori word Pākehā is the name for all non-Māori in New Zealand English.
Equal rights have a long tradition in the 5 million state. Women have been able to vote since 1893, much earlier than in other countries: Germany 1919, Switzerland 1971. In terms of salaries, political participation, health and education, there is largely equality between men and women in New Zealand.
The health system corresponds to western standards. The state finances social benefits such as old-age pensions, unemployment benefits and child benefit. There are state and private health insurances.
Church and state are separate. There is freedom of religion. 49% of New Zealand’s population say they do not follow any religion. 37% profess Christianity, only a few profess the faith of Hindus, Māori, Muslims, Buddhists and Jews.
