New Zealand

New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises
two main landmasses -that of the North Island, and the South Island, and numerous smaller islands.
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 bio-diversity 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 is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

In December 2004, New Zealand prohibited smoking in all indoor public places. A complete smoking ban
in the country has been well accepted by the public. This fact supports that a partial smoking ban
in a public place is seriously inadequate in terms of protecting the public health from toxic second-hand smoke.
